How to use the Factory Remote Start
Impala 2006 – 2012 models
If your key FOB has a “circle arrow” button at the top (see image), your Impala is likely equipped with a factory installed remote start! Here’s how to use it:
- Lock or re-lock your car using the FOB.
- Immediately press and hold the circle arrow button for 5 seconds.
- You’ll notice the front and rear blinkers blink twice, in a few moments your Impala will be running!
- When you’re ready to drive, simply put the key in the ignition and turn it to the “On” position.
NOTE: Even if your Impala has been sitting locked in the parking lot all day, you must re-lock it for remote start to work!
NOTE: If you don’t put the key in the ignition (step 4), your Impala will stop running after 10 minutes.
NOTE: Your air condition or heating will run on high until your put your key in the ignition (step 4).
