Engine shuts off (remote start) 2016 xlt

Recommended Posts

Hi I just got the 2016 xlt TC and yesterday I installed update for my sync.

 

This morning I remote start my car (factory), when I sat down the car all the sudden turned off 🤔🤷‍♂️?

 

I don't think I had this problem before (only have it for 5 days) 

 

Why does it do that? and how can I make sure it doesn't shut off because it kind of defeats the purpose.

Were you in the car?  How long did it run?  The remote start run the engine for a warm up period and turns off.  How long did it run?

For as long as I'm not trying to sit in it, the moment I do it shuts off

That is buy design.  The TC wants to make sure the Key or the Fob ( key less) is in the car. Nothing is wrong.

So whenever I see this on my dashboard no problem I put the key in turn it to 2nd position and I'm off.

However sometimes when I remote start it it will be running with nothing on the dash display and that's when it shuts of either when i open 3rd door or when I sit in it.

any logic to it🤷‍♂️?

I think it is no issue  Have you pushed the door lock button with it running on remote start? Does that change anything.

The only remote start I've personally had was an aftermarket unit on a Ford Ranger, it'd run for up to 15 minutes. I know in my dad's 2000's-something (maybe '04 or so) Chevy Impala, if he remote starts it, sits down and forgets to put the key in the ignition before pushing the brake, it'll automatically shut-off as a theft-preventive measure (so, pushing the brake w/o key shuts the engine off). When he puts the key in first & turns it to run, no problem & stays running. I'm thinking you may need to look at the remote start section in the owners manual to see the "behavior patterns", like why you only sometimes see that "Remote Start Active" screen - maybe there's a time limit? Perhaps after X minutes of running, it'll automatically shut off when you sit down - but below the time threshold, it will act 'normal'? That info should be in the manual. My own van is an XL, so the only fancy upgrades are power locks/windows, I had to add my own factory cruise control, even.

Like today, I was leaving the gym ,so I started the car 2min before I actually got in it, So first thing I did was open the side door to put my gym bag in and the moment I closed it  and was going to open the drivers door the car shuts off 🤷‍♂️
