Daniel :

Daniel :

?

Customer:

it starts with the key good

Daniel :

ok and is this a factory remote start?

Customer:

battery is full when you use the remote start it is all good till it should start but then the horn go off 6 times

Customer:

yes it is a ford factory unit

Daniel :

Thanks so much for this info.

Customer:

i found a site that says 6 beeps is for service mode

Daniel :

are we back?

Daniel : 6 beeps indicates that it is in "valet" mode. To return the system back to normal mode, turn the ignition key to On or Run position, press and hold the brake pedal and press the remote starter button on the PowerCode remote (starter) control transmitter 3 times again. The horn will honk one time to indicate that the remote start system is out of "Service/Valet" mode. The ignition key may now be turned off

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
