Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

To remote start the vehicle you need to press the start button on the key fob two times within five seconds.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

that doesnt seem to work...sometimes when i press it four times in will work
Ford Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

There is a very good chance that the fob isn't transmitting when you're pressing the button. Try either replacing the battery or removing it and testing it's voltage with a voltmeter. IF the battery is ok then the next step would be to test the fob to see if it's transmitting correctly each time the button is pressed. Most big chain parts stores such as Autozone will test fobs for free.

i changed the battery with no difference. the light on the fob is lighting when pressing the start button
Ford Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

The next step will be to have it tested to see if it is transmitting.

ok ill go to auto zone

i have two fobs and they are both acting this way...so i dont know what to think now. Sometimes when I press start 4 times it will start...other times not
Ford Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

They may both be bad but the remote start module may also be failing. Having the fobs tested will differentiate.

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.

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
