Remote start climate operation (if equipped)

Remote start climate operation (if equipped)  - Climate Controls - Lincoln MKX Owners Manual - Lincoln MKX

The climate control system will condition the cabin temperature during remote start. Engine idle may increase to help with adjusting the cabin temperature.

Note: No climate control adjustments will be recognized during remote start operation and none of the climate function indicators will be illuminated while the vehicle is in remote start. Once the ignition is cycled to the on position, the climate control system will return to the previous settings (last ignition-on cycle) and adjustments can be made normally. If the previous setting was off, the climate control system will turn off.

If you previously had any of the following activated: heated seats (if equipped), cooled seats (if equipped), heated steering wheel (if equipped), heated mirrors (if equipped), or rear defrost, they will not return to their previous settings (on) when the ignition is turned on and will need to be re-activated if desired.

For more information on remote start climate settings and options, refer to Message Center in the Instrument Cluster chapter.
