MyKey is not compatible with non Ford-approved aftermarket remote start systems. If you choose to install a remote start system please see your authorized dealer for a Ford-approved remote start system.

The following information MAY help customers who choose to use a non Ford-approved remote start system. The actions proved below do NOT make MyKey compatible with non Ford-approved remote start system, but it MAY help you to retain some MyKey functions.

Vehicles equipped with an intelligent access key (push button start)

• It is not possible to program any remote start system as MyKey on vehicles equipped with intelligent access key (push button start).

Therefore, you should treat the remote start fob as you would any other admin key. When the vehicle is started using remote start, the system will stall the engine when you either enter the vehicle or shift the vehicle into gear. Prior to the engine stall, the vehicle will have administrative privileges. When you restart the engine, the vehicle will identify the user as an admin or MyKey drive depending on the settings of the actual key used to start the vehicle.

Note: For all vehicles, the number of MYKEY(S) PROGRAMMED or ADMIN KEYS PROGRAMMED that is displayed in the MyKey system status menus will include the non Ford-approved remote start system as an additional key in the total count. See the Check MyKey system status section.

Note: For all vehicles with a non Ford-approved remote start installed, it is possible to program all ’real’ keys as MyKeys , in which case, you will need to use your remote start system to reset all MyKeys as admin keys by doing the following:

1. Enter the vehicle, close all doors.
2. Remote start the vehicle using your non Ford-approved remote start fob.
3. Follow Steps 1-4 in the Clear MyKey section.
