Toyota's VIP remote start system is an excellent feature that allows you to crank your engine from a distance, and even pre-set your air conditioning or heat to cool or warm the vehicle. If you didn't get remote start on your vehicle, see your local dealer about adding the feature.

Step 1

Make sure you are no further than 80 feet from your vehicle before using your remote starter. The Toyota remote has a maximum range of 80 feet.

Step 2

Press the "lock" button (which is a symbol of a closed lock) twice quickly, and then press and hold the button for three seconds. The doors in your Toyota will automatically lock and the engine will start.

Step 3

Press the "unlock" (symbol of an open lock) button to turn your engine off.
