How to: Nissan Versa Remote Start
Remote start is an important feature that allows you to start your vehicle’s engine and make sure the cabin is at a temperature suited to your preferences, keeping you warm when it’s cold outside, or maintaining a cool cabin when it’s hot.
Your Nissan Versa’s key fob will have a circular arrow button indicating the remote start feature. Pressing the lock button as well as the circular arrow button and holding it for at least 2 seconds will help to remote start your Versa.
If your parking brakes come on, it means the engine has started and will operate for 10 minutes without key insertion. If within that time, you fail to insert the key in the ignition or press the push-button start, you will be allowed to use the remote starter again for another 10 minutes, after which, a manual starting of your engine will be required.
You can also make use of the remote start feature on your Versa through your smartphone via NissanConnect service. You can remotely start your vehicle using the NissanConnect Services app or MyNissna Owner Portal. A PIN is added to the NissanConnect Services app or MyNissan Owner Portal as a safety feature.
When you remote start your Versa, the engine will be on for 10 minutes. However, if you send two remote start commands from the NissanConnect Services app or MyNissan Owner Portal, or if the engine hasn’t been started in the last 14 days, engine ignition will require Nissan’s Intelligent Key before you can send another remote start command. Since it works through a cellular network, the connection, as well as signal strength, will differ based on location.
For you to be able to remote start your Versa, its doors need to be locked with windows pulled up, the hood must be closed, the brake pedal should not be depressed, the transmission must be in ‘park’ mode, and the Nissan Intelligent key should be outside your Versa.
You can even cancel a command given for remote start after the engine has been started by sending a Remote Engine Stop command on the NissanConnect Services app or MyNissan Owner Portal.
With benefits like these, you can make sure the cabin of your Versa is in the condition you want it to be before you set off on the roads of Middletown, CT.
