How do I extend the remote start?

Unless set otherwise, your engine will run for 10 minutes after being turned on via remote start. After 10 minutes, if the car has not been operated, the engine will turn off. You can extend the remote start time at any point during those 10 minutes by pressing the Lock button, and then the Remote Start button twice. This will add five minutes to the engine run time.
