How do I adjust the remote start duration?

When you turn on your vehicle via remote start, the engine will stay running for a set amount of time. If you do not enter the vehicle in that amount of time, the engine will automatically turn off. This duration can be adjusted easily: 1. Press the Up/Down buttons on the steering wheel until Settings is displayed on the instrument panel, then press the OK button. 2. Press the Up/Down buttons until Convenience is displayed, then press the OK button. 3. Press the Up/Down buttons until Remote Start is displayed, then press the OK button. 4. Press the Up/Down buttons until Duration is displayed, then press the OK button. 5. Select 5, 10, or 15 to choose how many minutes you would like the engine to stay on for.
