    Remote Engine Start

    Just accidentally discovered I have remote engine start on my 2005 Escalade (lol, and no, I just got the Escalade and have not had it since new )

    Just push the lock button 3 successive times and the engine started It's a OEM remote, so not sure if it was a dealer installed option or factory? If you haven't tried it on yours, give it a try and you might get lucky like me Post up if I helped you discover something new Dealer/Car Salesman didn't tell me about Remote Engine Start, so I don't think they knew about it. Good luck!

    Yeah I found out my truck had one too after the dealer gave me the second remote. Huge plus up in the new England weather! I'll grab the name off the clicker when I get home...works well though, from a decent distance too.

    Ok I wish mine had it but it ain't an option for our body style the 07 and up guys get the fun add-ons from factory where we have to go aftermarket but I like the look in the front better on our body style.

    My remote says auto mate. Not sure if this is the maker of the starter or simply the remote though. Gives you another avenue to pursue though

    I may try that on mine and see what happens cause this makes me wonder if there is one on mine cause I did get two remotes when I got my truck but they are stock so idk.

    Re: Remote Engine Start

    The reason the factory remote works is because the security bypass module/interface used utilizes the factory remote to trigger some remote starting. I install a lot of remote starts and use mainly Directed brand products (Viper, Avital, Python, etc) and the DB-ALL security bypass/vehicle interface is capable, on some vehicles, of using the factory remote to remote start, or trigger other functions such as rolling down all the windows, and things of that nature. There should be an antenna above your rear view mirror that is not from the factory.

    My factory remote does not work for starting the car. I tried pressing the lock three times but no luck. Guess I should spring for a backup auto mate remote.

    you might have to find out the model of the system cause the remote has to be the same as the one you have.
