Re: remote start

Don't understand why jeep did not make these key-less entry cars, just to turn off once out of key range.

Insurance companies would have a picnic if someone reported that they started the car remotely, then when they came out to the car, it was being driven off by the local crimegang. Probably not the best tool in a big city. I know that is an extreme example, but something you need to consider.
The Mopar remote start system is much more intelligent than you think. I used it in a Durango when I was in the USA last week.

Doors have to be locked, hood closed and vehicle in park for it to start. Then once it's on, you get in and press the start button, just like you would when you get into your JGC normally.

If you do not have a key, it will not continue to run. You cannot take it out of gear when it is started but you haven't pressed the start button, it's just like the car is off.

Signal strength measured in antenna dBm instead of bars (makes much more sense, and you can tap on it to get bars back)

To get it type *3001#12345#* into the phone keypad and press call. Then force quit the app by holding down power until the power slider comes up and then just hold down the home button.

What if your battery dies or if the remote malfunctions, it could potentially be very dangerous at high speed

Re: remote start

Notice when you leave the vehicle or wife gets out with the key it starts to ding.
It could be limited to 5-10km/h if the vehicle moves from a stop after it starts dinging.
This gives you time to move the car, or insert the key in the starter.

Re: remote start

I think the current set up is just fine... If the battery in the fob dies or something went wrong with the rf reciever I'd prefer to get home rather than crawl off to the side of the road.

The reciever is quite sensitive. I went to start the car to warm it up the other day. Keys in right pocket. Left foot on brake right foot on ground. reached in to push the start and it said key not detected... The key couldn't have been more than a few centimeters out the door frame...

Re: remote start

But you can still drive the car with a dead battery by placing the fob in the starter after removing the button.

Re: remote start

What is the difference between remote start and keyless enter and go? Each way you can enter and go without physically using a key.

Re: remote start

remote start = push a button on your key without opening the doors to start.
