2019 RAM key fob basics: remote start

  • To unlock your RAM: Push and release the unlock button on the key fob once to unlock the driver’s door.

  • To start your RAM remotely: Simply push and release the remote start button twice on the key fob twice within five seconds. You’ll hear your vehicle’s engine start immediately, and it’ll continue running for 15 minutes before shutting down. How can you manually shut off your engine without waiting for the 15-minute cycle to end? Push the button a third time.

How to lower all your RAM’s windows 

Now let’s move on to some cooler tricks. To roll down all the windows at once, press the engine start button without pressing the brakes. With your key fob, enter the “ACC,” or accessory mode. Access your windshield wipers and windows all at the push of a button!
