LEXUS — Remote Engine Starter 

INTRODUCTION

The REMOTE ENGINE STARTER allows you to start your engine from outside the vehicle. It utilizes 
your vehicle’s keyless entry remote, so there is no need to carry around an extra remote. The REMOTE 
ENGINE STARTER is operated the same way for vehicles equipped with or without the Smart Entry / 
Push Start system; simply push the remote’s LOCK button in a quick, two step sequence. In addition, the 
REMOTE ENGINE STARTER can activate the heater or air conditioner according to your preset tem-
perature controls, providing you with a comfortable cabin upon entry. As an added convenience, the 
REMOTE ENGINE STARTER can also activate the defroster (when preset) to clear up the windshield 
during cold weather.

To ensure your safety, and the safety of anyone near the vehicle, the REMOTE ENGINE STARTER is 
designed to shut the engine off when it detects any attempt to enter or move the vehicle after a remote 
engine start. Please consult your Lexus dealer for more details.

NOTE: To utilize the REMOTE ENGINE STARTER, your vehicle must have an automatic transmission; 
it cannot be used for manual transmission models. The transmission range for remote start may be 
shorter than the remote’s basic keyless entry operation. Range can also be affected by the surrounding 
environment. Laws in some communities require that the vehicle be within view of anyone using the 
REMOTE ENGINE STARTER. In some states, use of the REMOTE ENGINE STARTER may violate 
state or local laws. Before using the REMOTE ENGINE STARTER, check your state and local laws.

For any questions or concerns about the REMOTE ENGINE STARTER, please call Lexus Customer 
Relations at (800)255-3987.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Caution

Do not start the engine in an enclosed area (such as a garage or 
indoor parking lot) where too much exhaust may accumulate and 
create a hazardous environment with potential for CO poisoning.

Caution

Do not start the engine if a child or pet are present in or near the 
vehicle. Interior power components such as windows and seats 
can accidentally be switched on and lead to injury.

Caution

Do not check the engine while it is still warm after  

being remotely started. Allow at least five minutes for the engine 

to cool to avoid being burned.

Caution

Do not start the engine near dry foliage, paper, or other  

flammable substances. The exhaust tube and emissions can 

 

create a fire hazard at high temperatures.

Caution

Do not use the REMOTE ENGINE STARTER from a distance 
where the vehicle cannot be seen. Children or small animals 
should not be near the vehicle.

-22

Caution

The general operating temperature of the REMOTE ENGINE 
STARTER under ideal conditions is above -22° F (-30° C).  
Due to multiple Vehicle Side variables, this operating  

temperature may fluctuate.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION 

Caution

Always shut off components such as the windshield wipers and 
radio after parking. If left on, such components may be damaged 
by remote engine start in extremely cold weather. Check that all 
vehicle windows are closed and all doors locked after parking.

Caution

Do not start the engine with the body cover still on the vehicle. 

The exhaust tube and emissions are capable of starting a fire at 

high temperatures.

Caution

Only use the REMOTE ENGINE STARTER when you intend to 
drive the vehicle; excessive engine starting consumes fuel and 
battery power.

Caution

To help reduce the risk of injury during engine service, the 
REMOTE ENGINE STARTER will not function while the hood 
is open.

Caution

REMOTE ENGINE STARTER cannot be initiated when Remote 
Air Conditioning / Solar Ventilation System is activated, and 
Remote Air Conditioning / Solar Ventilation System cannot be 
activated when REMOTE ENGINE STARTER is operational.
