How do you start a 2016 Honda Civic with the key?

I know that I can start my 2016 Honda Civic with the key, but I’ve never done it before. Now that it’s getting colder, it would be really helpful if I could learn how to do it!

Remote start can definitely be useful to
warm up your car
in the winter! To start your 2016
Honda Civic
using the key, follow these steps:
  • Make sure your car is locked.
  • You’ll need to be in range of your car to use remote start. If you can’t lock your car remotely, for example, you won’t be able to use remote start, either.
  • Press and hold the rounded arrow button on your key fob.
  • After a few seconds, your car should start.
  • Your car will typically run for 10 minutes before shutting off.
  • It will automatically attempt to bring the internal temperature of your vehicle to 72 degrees, so remote start can be helpful in the summer, too.
