It has the regular 4 button remote like the one pictured above. I had it done at a local stereo shop last year, don't know exactly how they did it.

Probably with something like this:

https://www.amazon.com/MPC-2380-Acti...s+remote+start

I don't think you can just turn something on in Forscan to get remote start on the Focus like on the F-150 referenced in the original post.

Talked to the local service manager and asked if they could just program the auto start without adding any physical components. He stated a definite no. From this thread, that is what it sounds like is being said, that they just had some reprogramming done to activate the auto start.

You should ask him about the 2012 f-150.

See if his answer is the same.
I have noticed that service managers often times don't know shit.

Got a real good repor with this one, known him for years. Often it also depends on the original model, XLT, Lariat, SE, Titanium etc. What trim package did your F150 have?

Fx4 but it's the same for all as far as i know. It's built into the computer as standard. You just have to turn it on with forscan.


I am not seeing anything on the focus though. Your guy is probably correct
