Ford Remote Start How-Tos

To begin using your Ford Remote Access for your Hendersonville drive, you want to first start your vehicle:

Starting Your Ford Vehicle

  • Press your lock button on the key fob to lock the doors
  • Press the remote start button twice
  • Exterior lamps will flash twice
  • Horn will sound if the command failed

Turning the Vehicle Off 

  • After remote starting, press your button once
  • Exterior lamps will turn off

If your Ford vehicle is equipped with the Memory Feature, you can utilize it to adjust your mirror, seating, and steering column positions when remote start is activated. However, the positions must be pre-set.

What is FordPass? 

Is your Ford vehicle equipped with SYNC Connect? If so, you can use your Ford Pass system to remotely control it. Luckily, there are no yearly subscription fees associated with SYNC Connect; just download it from Google Play or the App Store in order to control the following: 

  • Start and stop remotely
  • Lock and unlock remotely
  • Schedule a start
  • Check fluid and gas levels

Ford Remote Access Won’t Work?

  • Ignition is on
