Remote start in UK

Post by stinky » Sun Feb 16, 2020 11:32 am

Hi,

I’ve just got into FORScan and played around I believe I’ve changed all locations to US but still not seeing the remote engine start option in the ford pass app.

Is it possible to get it working?

remote start doesnt care if its set to uk or us , if it wasnt fitted as standard then it will require a module and new keys programming so is dealer or certified locksmiths only.
i am the same as you just a forscan user still learning .

Ah ok.

I was told it was fitted but not legal in the uk so had to be enabled by setting the country to US

Obviously we are wrong

appartently a starter-x kit will do the job but their expensive , and dont buy one from the u/s as you have to pay import tax on top.

if you thinki you have it and have done the -
Remote Start - Aftermarket enable BCM 726-22-02 xxx1 xxxx xxxx 112
BCM 726-38-02 xxx0 xxxx xxxx <-- optional, disables horn honk with 2 presses of lock button on fob

have you tried doing the
To remote start,
hit lock button on fob once then the larger button below it (with 2X) twice.
While it's running, hit the 2X twice again to shut down.

but pritty sure its not gonna work without the extra module installed.

and who ever told you its illegal in the u.k needs to go back and read some laws lol
