Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Todd asks: Am I able to start my car from my Android phone? Do I have to buy a remote starter? I have the 2018 EcoSport.
My reply: Ford offers remote start as standard or optional equipment on most of their new vehicles. If it came with the system from the factory, the system usually operates via the car’s key fob rather than the phone – but some of the newer systems also let you use an app to start the car using your phone.
If your vehicle didn’t come with remote start system from the factory, you will probably have to get an aftermarket install.
Ford has more info about their factory remote start systems here.
Hope this is helpful!
