Ford Taurus Owners Manual: Remote start climate operation (if equipped)

The climate control system adjusts the cabin temperature during remote start.

You cannot adjust the system during remote start operation. In addition, the SYNC display and other displays remain blank during remote start operation. Turn the ignition on to return the system to its previous settings. You can now make adjustments. You will need to turn certain vehicle-dependent features back on, such as:

• heated seats

• cooled seats

• heated steering wheel

• heated mirrors

• heated rear window.

You can adjust the settings using the information display controls.

See the Information Displays chapter.
