2013 Ford Escape Remote Control Starter

  • 2013 FORD ESCAPE
  • 16,000 MILES

1. The dealer installed a remote control starter for me when I purchase the vehicle. The remote is a round disc type separate from the key. When I first received the car I was able to start with the remote. Suddenly, the remote just stopped working. We have checked the battery and it is OK. I have tried with the doors in both lock and unlock positions. I have also checked to make sure the valet option is set to OFF. Why won't it work. I am almost sure it has something to do with settings but so far I am unable to fix.

2. Admin key setting---while trying to resolve remote control start problem my boyfriend activated the Admin Key setting for Admin Key 1--now every time I get near 80 the radio shuts off and warning bells come on. How can I clear this setting. Have tried everything.


Do you
