Remote engine start system (dealer option)

Subaru Forester / Subaru Forester 2012-2019 Owners Manual / Starting and operating / Remote engine start system (dealer option)

WARNING

There are some general precautions when starting the engine.

Carefully read the precautions described in “General precautions when starting engine” F7- 9.

Do not remote start a vehicle in an enclosed environment (e.g.

closed garage). Prolonged operation of a motor vehicle in an enclosed environment can cause a harmful build-up of Carbon Monoxide. Carbon Monoxide is harmful to your health. Exposure to high levels of Carbon Monoxide can cause headaches, dizziness or in extreme cases unconsciousness and/or death.

Before performing any servicing of the vehicle, temporarily place the remote engine start system in service mode to prevent the system from unexpectedly starting the engine.

The remote engine start system allows you to start the engine from outside the vehicle. In addition, the remote engine start system can activate the heater or air conditioner, providing you with a comfortable cabin upon entry.
