How does remote-start work with a key?
Remote car starters work via radio frequency. A box is connected to your car’s ignition switch and other basic startup mechanisms. When you press the ignition button on your key fob or remote, it sends a signal to the box to turn on the systems that start the engine.
Can I start my car without the fob?
Yes, you can drive a car without the key fob once the engine is running. Moreover, you can shift to drive (D) from park (P) without the key in the car. If the vehicle is a keyless vehicle, you must press the start button to run the engine. When your car detects and authenticates the fob, you may then start the engine.
How do I start my car after remote start?
Once in the vehicle, insert your key fob into the wireless ignition node (WINR), and turn to the ON/RUN setting (you don’t need to turn all the way to START, since your vehicle is already started). Your car will now operate as it normally would.
How do I start my car if my key fob is not working?
If your keyless entry works with a START button and there’s no mechanical key slot, there’s still a way to start the car. Use the key fob to push the START button. Some manufacturers have a backup system that allows this method to work if the key fob battery is dead.
Why won’t my key fob unlock my car?
The key fob itself could be defective or have a bad unlock button. Try the lock button, trunk release button or panic button. If the other buttons work, the problem is a bad unlock button. A fault in the wiring or control circuitry, or even a blown fuse may be preventing the power door locks from unlocking.
