A Step-by-Step Guide

If you’re like many drivers in Stephenville, remote start is a feature you may be unfamiliar with. Luckily, it’s not as hard to use as it seems, and it comes with a lot of benefits, including warming up your car in the winter and cooling your car in the summer before you get in it.

Starting Your Ford Vehicle:

  • Press the lock button on the key fob to lock the doors.
  • Press the remote start button twice.
  • Exterior lamps will flash twice.
  • The horn will sound if the command failed.

Turning the Vehicle Off:

  • After remote starting, press the button once.
  • Exterior lamps will turn off.

Using the Memory Feature:

  • When remote start is activated the driver’s seat, mirror, and steering column will set to their pre-set positions.

Status Feedback

If your Ford remote access is set up with Status Feedback, you will get feedback on the remote start or stop commands. Here’s what they 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.
