Warming up your engine before you hit the road can be an inconvenience, but it’s an easy way to keep your car in top condition and make the morning commute a little more comfortable. With a remote start key, it’s easier than ever. All you need to do is press a button, and your car will be ready to go before you even finish your morning cup of Joe.
How to remote start your Kia K5
The Kia K5’s remote start key has a range of 500 feet, though the connection gets weaker as you move further away. For best results, stay within 100 feet of your car when using the remote start button.
Remember that your Kia won’t turn on if the doors aren’t locked. Once you start the car, it will run for a maximum of 10 minutes before automatically shutting off. While that may not seem like a long time, it’s plenty for your car to heat up and get your engine warmed up for the day.
That’s it! Since accidentally starting your engine could cause problems, Kia added safeguards to the remote start process—like requiring drivers to lock their doors and hold down the button. But there’s little to no risk associated with stopping the engine. That’s why owners can end their remote start with the simple push of a button.
