Remote Start Available But An App Is On The Way

Recommended Posts

I am purchasing a 2013 es 350 and having dealer install a remote start.

Was told by dealer that an "app" will be available in about 6 months that will allow remotely starting motor via SMART PHONE.

Is there anyone with knowledge about the remote start.

My question is........if I have the existing remote start package installed now, will I be able to make an inexpensive add on with the upcoming phone app?

Hi Alan and welcome to the club!

We just purchased a 2013 RX350. We had the dealer install the remote start with the "App" feature. I can't imagine why your dealer would not have it as well, let alone needing to wait 6 months to get the package.

I would suggest you call a Lexus dealer in Dallas, TX by the name of Sewell Lexus. They carry a large inventory of parts and sell to our members at a reduced cost. I bet they would have the part in stock. go

You can also call Lexus customer support at 800 255 3987 and ask them to help you find out the facts.

      I've had my Lexus for a year now, with Lexus Enform now expired.  Didn't realize that without subscription service to Enform, my remote start no longer works.  It's an option on much lower priced cars (GM, Ford, etc), but doesn't work on Lexus without a monthly pay subscription.  This seems inconceivable.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.  Lexus Enform was so difficult to use, I unsubscribed not realizing I'd loose this option.

      Anyone suggest a remote start for my 2013 RX350? Smart phone capable would be great.
      I need a replacement key. I have the tag with key code number. Anyone know how I can get an OEM key cheaper than the dealer's price of $273.00? The price includes $187.00 for the fob, $51 for the key/cutting and $25.00 for the programming.

      Does anyone know how difficult it would be to add remote start to an HS? I have the technology package so I'm not sure if this would make a difference as it relates to the remote start or not. If you have input, I would love to hear it. Thanks for listening!
