How To Use Chevy Remote Start

Chevrolet is committed to making your life easy and convenient. That’s why all new Chevrolet models have available remote start. It is accessible on your vehicle’s key fob and through the MyChevrolet app. With impressive technology, the remote start function warms or cools your vehicle’s cabin before entry so it’s comfortable when you get in, allows you to warm up your vehicle’s engine, and integrates with your vehicle’s anti-theft system.

How To Use Chevy Remote Start 

First, you’ll want to make sure your Chevy vehicle is equipped with a remote-operated starter. You can check your key fob or MyChevrolet app “Key Fob” page to make sure. If you see a remote-start button shaped like a curved arrow (on the physical key fob, this will be right below the lock and unlock buttons), then you have remote start capabilities. 

Once you’re ready to Chevy remote start your vehicle, you need to be relatively close to start your vehicle with your key fob. However, you can use the MyChevrolet app remote start from greater distances. Start by first pressing the lock button to lock your car before it starts your engine for safety and security purposes. You will not be able to remote start your vehicle until it has been locked beforehand. Then, immediately press and hold the remote start button for at least four seconds. Your engine will then roar to life.

Best Practices For Remote Start 

When you remote start your vehicle, your engine will run for only 15 minutes before it shuts down itself. The time limit is meant to preserve power in case you change your mind or forget your vehicle is started. If the 15 minutes runs out before you’re ready to depart, you can repeat the remote start process within 30 seconds of the first run time, for a total of 30 minutes. Change your mind about leaving? You can easily turn your engine off by pressing and holding the remote start button just like you do to turn it on. 

If you can’t get your remote start to work, keep in mind that the function is disabled in a few circumstances. If the hood is not closed, if the key fob is inside the car (to prevent you from locking yourself out), or if the hazard lights are on the remote start function will not work. Check these first if you’re having any trouble.
