How to use INFINITI Remote Engine Start/Stop

You can use the MyINFINITI app on your compatible smartphone to remotely start your car. [[5550]] [[5502]]


How long does remote start stay on?

Once Remote Engine Start is activated, your INFINITI vehicle will run for 10-20 minutes, depending on vehicle model. If you haven’t entered the vehicle with a key by the time that period lapses, your engine will shut down automatically.

If your vehicle fails to start following a remote command, you’ll be notified by the push notification preference you set on the MyINFINITI app or MyINFINITI Owner Portal.

Extend your remote start time

On select models, you can extend your INFINITI remote start once by 10 extra minutes before it turns itself off. On the MyINFINITI app, just press the "start" button again within the initial 10 minutes.
