Ford has taken advantage of what's available to them by developing the FordPass app. You can download this app to your smart device, and you'll be able to control a number of features remotely. This includes the remote start feature. You can also manage your service appointments and lock/unlock your vehicle using your phone.

How To Set Up Your FordPass Account and Start Your Vehicle Remotely

The free FordPass app can be found in the app store. It takes just seconds to download, and you have to go through a few steps to create an account for your vehicle. Once you've given your car a name, you'll be able to quickly select your model and start up your engine with a quick press of a button. Unlike previous model years, your remote start doesn't need your fob nearby when you're using the app.

Once you get used to utilizing your remote start feature on your phone, you'll get in the habit of presetting your temperature controls to the degree that you want them at later in the day. Once you start your vehicle, you'll only have to wait a few minutes for everything to be comfortable inside.

If you're having issues setting up the FordPass app on your phone or would like to try this feature out for the first time before buying your next vehicle, visit Westway Ford for more information. We'll walk you through this feature and many other great convenience features in the current Ford models that we have on our lot.
