How do I use remote vehicle start?
Your remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitter can be used to turn on your vehicle before you are in the car. Turning on your vehicle with remote vehicle start is easy: 1. Make sure that you are within range of your vehicle. The range is approximately 195 feet, but it can be lessened if you are near things that disrupt the signal, such as a radio tower. 2. Press the lock doors button on the RKE transmitter. 3. Press the remote vehicle start button on the RKE transmitter, and hold for at least two seconds. At this point the turn signals will flash to confirm that your car has been turned on. The headlights will turn on, and stay on. The vehicle will stay turned on for 10 minutes, or until you begin driving. Tip Even though the vehicle is already turned on, you’ll still need to turn to ignition to ON/RUN before you can begin driving.
