Over the last 50 years in Canada, Honda has been dedicated to growing and developing their brand to build you some of the best vehicles on the market. From design, safety, technology and innovation, Honda has grown to become a trusted name. As technology in the automotive industry moves forward, today, Honda focuses on creating a driving experience that’s also convenient. With the help of Honda’s smart technology, Honda’s Remote Start capability ensures that your vehicle is ready to hit the road when you are, no matter the weather or temperature outside.
Equipped in select Honda models, Remote Start allows you to turn on your vehicle from inside your home or up to 55 meters away. Whether you need your vehicle to warm up on cold winter days or cool down in the middle of summer, with Remote Start, you won’t have to wait before you start to drive. You’ll feel comfortable as soon as you sit in the driver’s seat. But Remote Start capability doesn’t stop there – and it’s easier than ever to use.
How to Use Remote Start with your Key Fob
Enabling Remote Start can be done right from your key fob. To turn on your vehicle, simply hit the lock button, followed by the start button (a circling arrow image). Your vehicle will flash its indicators twice to confirm that the engine has started. The engine will run for a total of 10 minutes before turning off unless you enter the vehicle within that time. Once you enter the vehicle, press the brake pedal and your Honda’s start button to activate all vehicle features and begin driving.
Sometimes, you may need your vehicle to run a little longer in certain weather conditions. Not to worry – Honda has you covered. You can extend the vehicle running time by another 10 minutes by pushing the lock and start button again. You can confirm the time extension by looking at the vehicle indicators, which will flash another 6 times. If you need to turn off your vehicle, you can do so by holding down the start button for 1 second.
Once your vehicle is turned on, interior temperature will turn on at a comfortable 22°C. If the weather outside is considerably hot or cold, your Honda will adjust interior temperature and vehicle features accordingly.
If it’s warm outside, the interior climate control system will operate in circulation mode, and, if your Honda is equipped, ventilated seats will also activate. If temperatures drop below 4°C, front and rear defrosters will activate, along with heated side mirrors, seats and steering wheel, if equipped.
