    When the hood is popped or up, the command start is defeated.

    When you turn your car on, does it return the favour? '14 Cadillac ATS Performance 3.6L AWD in Son of a Gun Grey Metallic and Morello Red Interior

    I can't believe that they haven't built the ability to remote start, etc. into the website. The link provided for the desktop app is appreciated, but not everyone will be able to install this on their work computer because of permissions. I think this is very sort sighted of them to not provided this feature from the website and could be a deal breaker for some people to not subscribe because they can't utilize these features while at work.

    I just purchased a 2010 performance model and I'm having a similar issue. My question is when I use
    the remote start the vehicle turns on by the time I enter and put my seatbelt on it's off again. I find
    myself having to push to start the vehicle, is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

    The remote start will only run the vehicle for 10 minutes at a time and you can only start it 2x with the remote. If it’s really cold where you are and you try a 3rd time, it won’t work, something with environmental emissions I think. You are able to set the comfort settings so that when you use the remote your seats turn on for you. You will always have to use the push button to actually engage the car so you can drive it, this is a security setting built in. I REALLY hate the crappy range the remote start offers. I haven’t downloaded the site to my work computer yet to allow me to start from my desk but I should…..
