Remote Engine Start (Sport and above CVT models)

What’s the Benefit?
The Civic Hatchback remote engine start system on CVT models provides a sophisticated level of additional comfort.

The Feature: Imagine being able to start your Civic Hatchback before you get in, so it’ll already be cooled off inside on a hot day—or warmed up and defrosted on a cold one.

  • Remote engine start works when you’re within about 100 feet of the vehicle.
  • Just push the LOCK button on the remote and then push and hold the engine-start button for at least a second—the starter will fire up the engine, and the automatic climate control system will begin conditioning the interior to a temperature of 72º F.
  • When you reach the car with the remote in your possession, you can enter the car as normal—the engine will keep running.
  • To drive, step on the brake pedal and push the ENGINE START button once.
  • The instruments will illuminate and you’ll be ready to go.
