Using your Ford Remote Start


The first thing you need to do when learning how to use your Ford Remote Start is to take your key fob and stand near your Ford vehicle. While you normally don’t need to stand near your vehicle, it’s helpful the first time so you can ensure that it works. Once you’re in front of your Ford, press the lock button on your key fob once, and then the button that looks like a circle with a two and an “X” on it twice. After doing this, you should see your headlights blink twice and you should hear your Ford start up! To turn your Ford off, simply press the same button once.
