How to remote start your 2014 Ford Fusion

If you selected the remote start feature for your 2014 Ford Fusion, then you’ll be able to get things fired up from up to 325 feet away—however, moving a bit closer will help ensure that things go off without a hitch. 

Starting the car

  • Press the lock button once on your
    key fob
  • Within 3 seconds, press the remote start button twice. 
  • Look for your Fusion’s flashing turn signals. If they flash twice, it means your car has successfully been started. 
Your Fusion will stay running for 15 minutes without a key in the ignition; after that, it’ll automatically shut off. Additionally, the vehicle is still locked and secure—you’ll need a valid key to enter and switch your car into drive mode.

Turning off the engine

  • Press and hold the remote start button.
That’s all you have to do! Keep in mind that this feature will only work if you remote started your vehicle. If there is a key in the ignition because you started your vehicle the normal way, you won’t be able to use your key fob to turn it off from a distance.

2014 Ford Fusion remote start tips and tricks

Here are a few important tips to remember when using your car’s remote start feature:
  • After you have remote started your Ford Fusion, press the lock button on the key fob. Then, press the remote start button two times with the vehicle still running to extend the run time for another remote start period. You can extend up to a maximum of 30 minutes.
  • Never remote start your Ford Fusion in a poorly-ventilated area, such as your garage! You’ll risk a buildup of toxic carbon monoxide.
  • Similarly, don’t remote start your Ford near flammable material. Things like grease, oil, and dead grass could potentially go up in flames if you’re not careful.
If your Ford Fusion doesn’t remote start and you’re certain you’ve followed the steps correctly, there could be a few issues:
  • Your Fusion is low on fuel.
  • You’ve disabled the remote start feature in your vehicle’s settings.
  • The hood and/or one or more of the doors of your Ford aren’t completely closed.
  • The vehicle’s transmission is not in park (P) mode.
  • The battery’s voltage has fallen too low.
  • The car’s service engine light is on.
  • Your Ford Fusion is not equipped with the remote start feature.
Key Takeaway Always think “safety first” before remote starting your Ford Fusion, and walk through potential issues if the feature does not work.
