Default Remote starter causing transmission leak?

I installed a remote start kit on our 2002 Bonneville SLE with about 52,000 miles on it. I have notice that on mornings where I use the start and let it idle there is a small puddle of transmission fluid in the driveway. Today I let it idle longer than usual and the puddle was bigger than usual. Can anyone tell me why this might be happening and what I could do about it?

Thanks,

You have a leak somewhere, I'll bet it leaks as you go down the road. Try to find where it'* leaking from, I suspect the pan gasket. Has there been any work performed lately?

The rear seal would drop motor oil.

i doubt that the remote start has ant effect to the trans fluid problems. It seems that the car probably has done this in the past, now that it is sitting and running in one spot you see the fluid
