What do you do in the wintertime, when your vehicle is absolutely frigid before it has the chance to heat up? What about the heat of summer, when you could fry an egg on your dashboard before the AC cools things off? If you have a Ford Fusion with a remote start, the answer is simple!
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.
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.
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.
