How does Remote Start work?

If your vehicle is equipped with a Remote Start System, it will allow you to start your vehicle before getting in.

Here’s how to remotely start your vehicle: 

  1. Press the lock button to lock all your vehicle’s doors from as far as 325 feet away.

  2. Press the Remote Start (2X) button twice.
    Your exterior lights will flash twice and your vehicle will start. Your key fob may have LED lights that turn green to let you know your vehicle has successfully started—or flash red if it hasn’t.

  3. If your vehicle has automatic climate control, you can configure this feature to start when you remote start your vehicle. (Check your Owner Manuals for instructions.)
