: Remote Start - Am I missing something?

Why can I remote start my V with the OnStar app, but not with the key fob? Obviously the car is set up to allow remote start - so do they just leave the fob start disabled unless you pony up for the "option"?

Lock car first then hold the start start button (circle thingy) for a couple seconds.

Fob should work fine albeit with it's limited range. One of the prime reasons I use the Onstar remote start because I can't start my car from my office and I am lazy :)

I have to press the key fob "lock" buttom twice, then remote start works.

Never had a problem with this. Press lock. Press and hold start for a few seconds. Works every time and at a pretty good distance.

Press and hold did the trick - I had read in a few places to double-click it, and that obviously wasn't working for me. Thanks all!

One of my favorite features of the car, especially in hot weather.

Press the Lock button first, then hold the remote start button until you hear the V come alive!!!!

Not usually hard to do in most parking lots! :)

The one and only drawback to the manual tranny
