What does the “2Xʺ button on my key fob do?

If your vehicle is equipped with a Remote Start System, the 2X button will allow you to start your vehicle before you get in.
2x key fob 1
2x key fob 2

Here’s how to remotely start your vehicle: 

  1. Press the lock button to lock all the 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 flash green to let you know your vehicle has started.
