Subaru Outback: Remote start safety features

For safety and security reasons, the system will fail to start and honk the horn twice or shut down the engine during remote start operation if any of the following occur:

● Any of the doors or the trunk / rear gate are open / opened (*the vehicle’s horn will honk six times and the side marker lights, tail lights and the front position lights will flash six times indicating that a vehicle door or trunk / rear gate was open when the remote engine start system was activated).

● The brake pedal is depressed ● The key was already in the ignition switch ● The engine hood is opened ● The remote start system “Service mode” is engaged ● The vehicle’s engine idle speed has reached a level over 3,500 RPM ● The alarm is triggered by opening a door or the rear gate.

● The select lever is not in the “P” position (AT and CVT models) In addition to the items above, if the vehicle’s engine management system determines there is a safety risk due to a vehicle related problem, the vehicle will shut down and the vehicle’s horn will honk three times.

NOTE

● If the alarm system is armed at the time of remote engine start activation (the security indicator light on the combination meter is flashing), the alarm system will remain armed throughout the remote start run cycle.

● If the alarm system is disarmed at the time of remote engine start activation (the security indicator light on the combination meter is not flashing), the alarm system will remain disarmed throughout the remote start run cycle.
