Start the car manually with the key and leave it to warm up.

2006 ford f-150 truck has a coolstart remote , doors lock, and unlock with remote but engine does not start


It may be the Security module. The "cold start" routine is necessary to make the engine run cold. When you are already inside the vehicle and turning the ignition switch it is not using the "wireless" feature of the FOB's. The ignition switch is hard wired to the vehicle module and would be sending the signal through a wired connection. For the warm start, the "cold start" sequence is not needed and all this proves is you have spark and fuel. Many engines are running too lean to start without the "cold start" sequence. Another remote possibility is a stuck temperature sensor is keeping the cold start off, but that does not explain the truck starting with a key.

Heating up your car


It seems simple, but you can make a big difference by turning off your radio, wipers, climate control, all of those accessories, when you start the car. Most of the wear on the engine happens when you start the car, and by turning off those accessories, your engine doesn’t have to work as hard when starting.
Another thing people do is revving the engine in the winter. This actually doesn’t help “warm up” the car. Although it does technically make the engine hotter, it’s not the kind of “warming up” that you want. Revving your engine in the winter causes extreme temperature changes right away, which is actually the opposite of what you want. When you start the car, the oil hasn’t yet worked its way through the system, so the engine is working without lubricant. The right way to do it is just let the car sit and idle for about 30 seconds to a minute at the least.

How to diagnose ALL vehicle NO heat problems


It is winter and you jump in your car start it up and turn the heater blower fan on.
You sit and wait...and wait.... NO HEAT !
Here are a few easy steps to help diagnose the problem:

1) After vehicle is completely warmed up, open your vehicles hood.

2) Grab a pair of gloves. Put them on, now put your hand with your glove on, on the TOP radiator hose. ( The top black radiator hose is the largest hose on the top of the radiator inlet running to the thermostat housing, in most vehicles)

3) Be careful NOT to touch ANY part of the engines cooling fan(s). Is the radiator hose HOT or COLD to the touch ?

If the hose is cold the easiest repair is to replace the thermostat. The thermostat helps regulate the engine temperature keeping it approximately 195 degrees Fahrenheit, and helps supply hot coolant to run through your vehicles heater core to keep you warm in the winter.

Heater and defroster don't work well


Connie this sounds like your thermostat in the engine is stuck open not letting the water stay in the engine block to heat up. The fix is to replace the thermostat with a new one that will allow the water to stay in the block to warm up. The typical symptoms of a stuck open thermostat is that the air will blow somewhat warm but never hot in the winter time, but it will take a few miles for the air to warm up at all. I would check with the dealership and find out what degree thermostat to replace it with. I run a 180 degree in the summer and a 195 degree thermostat in the winter just to have hot heat in the winter. I hope this helps

My heater fan (blower) will not work with the remote car starter that was installed professionally. they tried but there is no single remote starter manufacturer that has separate module to install for...


I am not sure I understand the problem. If I do understand correctly, all you need to do is, at the end of your driving for the day, leave the fan (blower) at the setting you require it to be at when you begin your day. Alternatively you could use a block heater (perhaps on a timer) which would warm up the coolant to a temperature adequate to run your fan (blower) when you enter your vehicle for the next day. The added benefit to this would be a saving in fuel while your vehicle idles before you begin your day, not mention the possibility of it stalling during after start up the next day. Is my assumption correct?

I have a 1998 Dodge Durango SLT-V6 that has no heat.


The heater core might need back flushed, I just did mine this winter. Go to dakota-durango.com and introduce your self and your rare as ever truck, a v6 durango, and have fun.

De Icing in the winter


you really dont want to install an auto starter on a hybrid, but if you do please let an experienced tech perform the installation. the engine on the vehicle works in conjunction with the battery, the battery actually helps keep everything warm so the vehicle warms up faster.
