Remote Vehicle Start

This vehicle may have a remote starting feature that allows you to start the engine from outside the vehicle.

This button will be on the RKE (Remote Vehicle Start):

This button will be on the RKE transmitter if you have remote start.

The automatic climate control will begin to heat or cool your vehicle during remote start depending on the temperature inside and outside of the vehicle. The windshield defroster and/or rear window defogger turn on if it is cold outside.

If the vehicle has heated seats, they may also be turned on during remote start to warm up the seats in cold weather. Normal operation of the climate control system returns after the ignition is turned to ON/RUN. See Dual Automatic Climate Control System.

Laws in some local communities may restrict the use of remote starters. For example, some laws may require a person using remote start to have the vehicle in view when doing so. Check local regulations for any requirements on remote starting of vehicles.

If your vehicle is low on fuel, do not use the remote start feature.

The vehicle may run out of fuel.

If your vehicle has the remote start feature, the RKE transmitter functions will have an increased range of operation. However, the range may be less while the vehicle is running.

Other conditions can affect the performance of the transmitter; see Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System for additional information.
