Does My Nissan Have Remote Start?

If your Nissan model is equipped with remote start, you’ll see a circular arrow button on your key fob. If you’re not sure, our team can help – just call or contact us today.

How Do I Use Remote Start?

Press the lock button and then press and hold the circular arrow button for at least two seconds to turn your vehicle on. (Yes, you need to push the lock button even if your doors are already locked.)


How Will I Know My Nissan is Running?

Are the parking brakes on? Then your Nissan vehicle is on!


How Long Will My Nissan Stay On?

Once you use remote start, your Nissan will run for ten minutes. If ten minutes passes without putting the key in the ignition, you can use remote start again for another ten minutes. After that, a manual start is the only way to turn your Nissan on.

Can I Use NissanConnect?

If your Nissan comes with NissanConnect services, you can also use your compatible smartphone or Amazon Alexa to remote start your vehicle. Contact us below to learn how to make the most of your NissanConnect system.

Why Should I Use Remote Start?

Using remote start helps you warm up your vehicle’s engine and bring the cabin to a comfortable temperature. Get in and go without frigid fingers or cold air blowing from your vents as you wait for your Nissan to heat up.
