That is normal operation of the unit. 

 

Same goes if you were to just start the car normally, the oem remote would stop functioning. 

 

I would sugget using an RF kit. https: lhttps://fortin.ca/en/technology/rf_kits.html

I understand this , but then the car is running all doors are locked and the fob completely stops. I cannot get into my car... lol is there a way that after remote start it unlocks the door, so atleast I can use my car....lol
You have 2 options on these type of vehicles:

 

1- pop the cover off the handle and put the key in the door to unlock it.

 

2- RF kit for door lock control once remote started.
