From the Service Manual...You can only use remote start
2 times before the vehicle needs to see the ignition key.
starting system will allow the vehicle to be started from distances of up to approximately 300 feet away from the vehicle. It operates using the remote
keyless entry key fob which is part of your ignition key.
In order to remote start
your vehicle, the hood and all the doors must be closed.
To remote start
your vehicle, press the REMOTE START
button on the key fob twice within three seconds. To indicate that the vehicle is about to start
, the parking lights will flash and the horn will sound briefly.
Once the vehicle has started, the engine will run for 15 minutes
. To cancel remote start
, press the REMOTE START
The parking lamps will remain illuminated to indicate that the vehicle has remote
started and the engine is running. The lamps will turn off when the ignition is turned to RUN or the remote start
To enter the vehicle while the engine is running during a remote start
, you must first unlock the vehicle using the UNLOCK button on the key fob. After the vehicle is unlocked, you have 60 seconds to enter the vehicle, insert the key in the Ignition and move it to the RUN position, otherwise the engine will cancel remote start
and automatically turn off.
will also cancel if any of the following occur:
If the engine stalls or RPM exceeds 2500
Any engine warning lamps come on
The hood is opened
The hazard switch is pressed
The transmission is moved out of park
The brake pedal is pressed.
The vehicle can be started remotely up to a maximum of two times. The vehicle is also allowed a maximum of one failed start
. This is where the remote start
sequence was initiated but the engine stopped cranking without starting. After either of these conditions, or if the Vehicle Theft Alarm is alarming, or if the PANIC button was pressed, the vehicle must be reset by inserting a valid key into the ignition and moving it to the RUN position, then back to LOCK.
