Are you tired of getting into a freezing cold or scorching hot car? With the Honda remote start feature, you can start your car and adjust the temperature before you even step inside. In this article, we will walk you through the process of using the remote start in your Honda Civic, Accord, CRV, or any other compatible Honda model. Whether you own a 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, or 2021 Honda, this guide will help you maximize the convenience of your remote start system.

Understanding Honda’s Remote Start System

First, let’s take a moment to understand how Honda has designed its remote start system. The primary goal is to create a comfortable interior temperature of 72 degrees Fahrenheit (22 degrees Celsius). In the winter, the system will work to warm up your vehicle to this temperature and turn on the heated seats on low. In the summer, it will activate the air conditioning to cool down your car to 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

How to Start Your Honda Using the Remote Start

Now, let’s get into the nitty-gritty of using the remote start feature. Follow these steps to start your Honda remotely:

  1. Lock the car by pushing the lock button once.
  2. Hold down the remote engine start button until the vehicle starts up. The front lights will flash to indicate that the process was successful, and the engine is now running.

Extending the Remote Start Time

If you want to add more time to the remote start duration, you can easily do so. Just follow these steps:

  1. Push the lock button again.
  2. Hold down the engine start button one more time.
  3. The lights will flash again, indicating that you have added an additional 10 minutes to the remote start time.

Turning Off Your Honda with the Remote Start

If you need to turn off your car after starting it remotely, follow these steps:

  1. Hold down the engine start button one more time.
  2. The vehicle will shut down completely.

Getting in and Driving Away

After using the remote start feature, it’s time to get inside and hit the road. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. As you enter the car, you will notice a message on the dashboard instructing you to start driving by pushing the brake and the push start button.
  2. Put your foot on the brake and push the push start button.
  3. The car will start up, and your center console and other features will load.
  4. It’s important to note that if you don’t have your key fob inside the car, the vehicle will automatically shut down to prevent theft. Always ensure your key is with you before starting the remote start process.
