The remote start feature has been included in many vehicles over the years, but new technology has now provided a different way to start your car remotely. If you purchase or lease a Ford from Peoria Ford, you'll be able to utilize FordPass to control your vehicle remotely. In addition to starting your engine, you'll be able to lock and unlock your vehicle. You can even create a start schedule on your phone, so your car will start at the same time every single day. The FordPass app is straightforward to set up and use, and you can utilize it to keep track of your routine maintenance, fuel level, and oil life.

How To Start Your Ford Remotely Using the App

First, you'll need to download the FordPass app for your smart device. Once downloaded, you'll be asked to set up an account for your vehicle. While you're setting everything up, keep your engine off. Add your vehicle using your VIN and give a name to your car on the app. Once you activate the app's vehicle, you can start your vehicle and allow this function in the future. Customer service is available if you're having trouble. You can contact our service department at Peoria Ford.

Ford is a good brand that has made it possible to utilize the FordPass Connect technology without investing in a top-of-the-line luxury vehicle. Any Ford model that was made after 2021 comes equipped with the FordPass Connect as a standard feature. Whether you want to avoid an extremely cold or hot interior when you arrive at your automobile or you want to prepare your engine for the drive ahead, the app that Ford provides you with the purchase of a new vehicle is a great feature to take advantage of.
