What is the hot/cold start feature?

The hot/cold start feature is an optional feature in ArticStart units that will allow your vehicle to automatically remote start when the temperature reading in the vehicle cabin reaches a set temperature. For cold start you can set the vehicle to start at:

  • -5°C/23°F
  • -10°C/14°F
  • -15°C/5°F
  • -20°C/-4°F

For hot start you can set the vehicle to start at:

  • 25°C/77°F
  • 30°C/86°F
  • 35°C/95°F
  • 40°C/104°F

The ArticStart unit will attempt to read the temperature in pre-set intervals; if it reads a temperature below the cold start limit or above the hot start limit the vehicle will automatically remote start. The run time for this remote start will be 4 minutes for regular vehicles, and 8 minutes for diesel vehicles. The set temperature and time interval between readings can be changed by the dealer/installer. This feature may require extra installation and equipment.

NOTE: This feature can only be programmed and set up by the installer or an authorized dealer. If it is not activated by an installer it will not function. When attempting to activate this feature from the remote you will receive a 'Fail' or 3 parking light flashes when this option is not activated.

Once the feature has been programmed by the installer you are able to activate it using your ArticStart remote. Once the vehicle is started with the key the hot/cold start will be reset to off. Therefore it must be manually activated with the remote every time after driving the vehicle if you would like it to be activated.

How to set hot/cold start mode:

  1. Have the vehicle turned off and the doors closed.
  2. Tap the unlock and the trunk buttons (II & III) at the same time. (do not hold) 
  3. If you have an LCD remote it should now show a 'timer' on the screen. 

How to deactivate the hot/cold start mode:

  1. Press and hold the unlock and the trunk buttons (II & III) at the same time. (press and hold for 2.5 seconds) 
  2. Tap the unlock and the trunk buttons (II & III) at the same time. (do not hold) 
  3. ALSO- Once the vehicle is started with the key the hot/cold start mode will be automatically cancelled.

Thank you.
