Ray, a North East resident and repeat ENORMIS Mobile Specialties client, stopped by the store to inquire about a remote start for his 2018 Ford F-150. ENORMIS had previously installed a remote start in his wife’s 2016 Chrysler Town and Country. Ray’s wife loves her remote start and Ray was a little jealous. His wife’s vehicle was always nice and warm, and Ray’s truck was always … cold.
Doug Reichert, our integration expert, spoke with Ray when he came to the shop, asking specific questions about how Ray intended to use the remote start. Then Doug demonstrated each remote start option to him.
Ray chose the Ford factory two-way remote start option. This is a true Ford factory start, as if the vehicle came with it from the Ford assembly line. (Note: This is not an option from the dealership — it only comes on the highest Ford Equipment Group configurations.)
We installed the remote start hardware from Ford, programmed the truck with the remote start software, and exchanged Ray’s old keys with two new Ford keys with the new two-way remote start button and LED indicators.
A green indicator means the truck has started, and a red indicator means the truck did not start. In addition, factory software allows Ray to choose his runtime and climate control settings from his instrument cluster menu.
Now Ray is no longer envious of his wife’s thawed and warmed vehicle in the morning. Ray said it’s a Christmas present to himself. Merry Christmas, Ray!
