Jeep Wrangler: REMOTE START — IF EQUIPPED (DIESEL) / Remote Start system

Jeep Wrangler. Remote Start system This system uses the key fob to start the engine conveniently from outside the vehicle while still maintaining security. The system has a range of approximately 300 ft (91 m).

Remote Start is used to defrost windows in cold weather, and to reach a comfortable climate in all ambient conditions before the driver enters the vehicle.


  • The vehicle must be equipped with an automatic transmission to be equipped with Remote Start.
  • Obstructions between the vehicle and the key fob may reduce this range.
  • The Remote Start system will wait for the Wait To Start Indicator Light Ú page 126 to extinguish before cranking the engine. This allows time for the engine pre-heat cycle to pre-heat the cylinder air, and is normal in cold weather.


  • Do not start or run an engine in a closed garage or confined area. Exhaust gas contains Carbon Monoxide (CO) which is odorless and colorless. Carbon Monoxide is poisonous and can cause serious injury or death when inhaled.
  • Keep key fobs away from children. Operation of the Remote Start system, windows, door locks or other controls could cause serious injury or death.
