Learn how to use Ford Remote Start and you’ll be able to turn on your vehicle from afar to have the cabin feeling perfect when you slip upside, and there are additional features available when you combine it with Ford SYNC technology.

What Does Ford Remote Start Do?

The Remote Start button is located on your key fob transmitter. Thanks to an extended operating range, it can turn on your engine before you open the vehicle, and it can do so from up to 300 feet away.

If you dread getting into a freezing car on cold Oscoda mornings or slipping into a sweatbox at the end of hot Tawas City summer days, use this feature to adjust your vehicle’s interior to a comfortable temperature before entering.

How Do You Use Ford Remote Start?

You can disable or enable the remote start system through the information display, and you can configure automatic climate control to begin operating when you remote start your vehicle. A manual climate control system keeps running at the same setting you left it.

To make sure the Remote Start system works:

  • Turn the ignition on
  • Have the transmission in park
  • Ensure vehicle battery voltage isn’t too low.

And that’s how to use Ford Remote Start!

How to Use Ford Remote Start With SYNC

If you have SYNC technology equipped, use Remote Start with Calendar to start your vehicle remotely with the tap of a button on your mobile device. You can also schedule a remote start any day, any time.

Further features include:

  • Lock and Unlock: If you’re worried about security or need to let someone in, just tap a button to lock or unlock the doors.
  • Vehicle Location: With FordPass, you can save the vehicle’s location to prevent getting lost in Iosco County parking lots.
  • Vehicle Status Report: Whether you want to check miles until your next service or the fuel level, you can do it all on your mobile device.
