How to Use Ford Remote Start

remote start car key

Sliding behind the wheel of your Ford Escape during frigid Granger winters can be a miserable experience. The same goes for scorching South Bend summer days, when the steering wheel is hot to the touch. Luckily, many new Ford models help Mishawaka drivers avoid this plight entirely, all thanks to Ford Remote Start. Learn how to use Ford Remote Start with Jordan Ford so that you can warm up or cool down your car before getting behind the wheel in the Osceola area.

Ford Remote Start Instructions

When equipped with Ford Remote Start, your Ford key fob promises the following functionalities.

Start Your Ford Vehicle

  • Unlock your car doors with the key fob.
  • Press the remote start button twice.
  • Watch to see whether the exterior lamps flash twice, indicating success.
  • Listen if the horn sounds, indicating a failed command.

Turn Off Your Ford Vehicle

  • Press the remote start button once (after having successfully remotely started your vehicle).
  • Check that the exterior lamps shut off.

Some Ford Remote Start systems also have a memory feature, which adjusts seating, mirror, and steering column positions when you remotely start your Ford. Keep in mind that these positions must be preset.

Ford Remote Start Status Feedback 

Another means of determining whether your remote start command worked is via remote control feedback. The lights that act as the feedback mean:

  • Solid Green — Remote start successful. 
  • Solid Red — Remote stop successful. The vehicle is off. 
  • Blinking Red — Remote stop or start failed. 
  • Blinking Green — Awaiting status update. 

Ford Remote Start Issues

Unsure why your Ford Remote Start system isn’t working? A few common causes include:

  • Engine already started.
  • Alarm triggered.
  • Remote stop/start system disabled.
  • Hood opened.
  • Transmission is not in parked (P) position.
  • Low vehicle battery 
  • Illuminated “Service engine soon” light 

What is Ford Remote Access via FordPass? 

Many new Ford Edge and other Ford models offer Ford SYNC Connect, through which you can use FordPass for Ford Remote Access. All you have to do is download the FordPass app from the App Store or Google Play to complete the following from your smartphone:

  • Remotely start and stop.
  • Remotely lock and unlock.
  • Schedule a start.
  • Check gas and fluid levels.
