Remote Start (If Equipped)
WARNING   WARNING:  To avoid exhaust fumes, do not use remote start if your vehicle is parked indoors or areas that are not well ventilated.

Note:   Do not use remote start if your vehicle is low on fuel.
Remote Start Button  The remote start button is on the transmitter.
This feature allows you to start your vehicle from outside the vehicle. The transmitter has an extended operating range.
Vehicles with automatic climate control can be configured to operate when the vehicle is remote started. See  Automatic Climate Control . 
Many states and provinces have restrictions for the use of remote start. Check your local and state or provincial laws for specific requirements regarding remote start systems.
The remote start system will not work if:
  • the ignition is on
  • the alarm system is triggered
  • you disable the feature
  • the hood is open
  • the transmission is not in P
  • the vehicle battery voltage is too low
  • the service engine soon indicator was on the last time your vehicle was driven.
Remote Starting the Vehicle
Note:   You must press each button within three seconds of each other. Your vehicle will not remote start and the horn will not sound if you do not follow this sequence.
Remote Starting Your Vehicle
The label on your transmitter details the starting procedure.
To remote start your vehicle:
  1. Press the lock button to lock all the doors.
  1. Press the remote start button twice. The exterior lamps will flash twice.
The horn will sound if the system fails to start, unless quiet start is on. Quiet start will run the blower fan at a slower speed to reduce noise. You can switch it on or off in the information display.   See   General Information
Note:   If you remote start your vehicle with an integrated keyhead transmitter, you must switch the ignition on before driving your vehicle. If you remote start your vehicle with an intelligent access transmitter, you must press the START/STOP button on the instrument panel once while applying the brake pedal before driving your vehicle.
The power windows will be inhibited during the remote start and the radio will not turn on automatically.
The parking lamps will remain on and the vehicle will run for 5, 10, or 15 minutes, depending on the setting.
Extending the Vehicle Run Time
Repeat Steps 1 and 2 with the vehicle still running to extend the run time for another remote start duration. If the duration is set to last 10 minutes, the duration will extend by another 10 minutes. For example, if the vehicle had been running from the first remote start for five minutes, the vehicle will continue to run now for a total of 20 minutes. You can only extend the remote start once. Some late build vehicles may be able to restart up to 30 minutes.
Wait at least five seconds before remote starting after a vehicle shutdown.
Turning the Vehicle Off After Remote Starting
Remote Start Button  Press the button once. The parking lamps will turn off.
You may have to be closer to the vehicle than when starting due to ground reflection and the added noise of the running vehicle.
You can disable or enable the remote start system through the information display.   See   General Information
