    It will run for 5, 10 or 15 minutes and then shut off if you do nothing. I believe you have to turn your key all the way to get moving.

    Turn the key to just before starting.

    I have a Lariat but I had a Mustang that was not pushbutton start and when I did the remote start I just put the key in and turned it to the "run" position to drive.

    But I do believe your vehicle has to be remote start capable in order to use this feature...

    Put the key in and turn to "ON" position to unlock steering wheel and turn on electronics.

    I use it almost every morning. When you get in just turn the key to the 'on' position and go.

    There's a Secure Remote Start option in Forscan...I enabled this and the Fob is required to be able to take the Truck out of park. The Sync screen is disabled as well.

    I didn't test this before changing settings in Forscan...not sure with the As-Built settings if you'd be able to put it in drive without the Fob. Of course you'd have to unlock the vehicle with Fordpass since remote start locks all the doors.

    "Someone" I know regularly puts the key on and turns it all the way to start position. The truck is smart enough to not engage the starter motor at all.

    I discovered this on my '09 Ranger I could turn the key and it won't turn the starter when it was running.
