I have an stx only have remote start through fordpass app. I see people with lower trims put the start x on their truck and like it. My question is this... when I use fordpass app to start it seems to go by temp as to using heat or ac. The start x said something about it using last set upon departure of vehicle.
That being said you guys with factory remote start does yours do the temp to select or last setting when you use key fob to remote start.

The only remote start I saw thats factory add on has a separate key fob. I don't want that but would like the auto climate.

I have a 502a prior to all the "deletes", and from my recollection there was some setting where it uses either a preset temp or where we have it set when we exit..

Yeah mine seems to be that when I use the app to start it bit when I heard of the start x on here somewhere I looked it up and I saw it says it uses the last set .. Unless I misread it.

Factory system can be set to auto (sets to 72 degrees), or you can set it to “last setting”. **note: once you get in and turn on the ignition it reverts to last setting.

You can also turn on/off the seats and steering wheel to come on with remote start.

I'm pretty sure I have mine set to auto . If I remember right I saw that setting when i first set things up. Not 100% sure tho as I have an stx.
My understanding is if I went start x route and start it from fob with lock unlock lock or other way around. Lol. It'll just do the last used.
If anyone has start x and could chime in would be great.
I'd rather all oem but only see where you get a small fob with the start button on it and I don't want anything extra just use factory fob

Check your sync settings screen for remote start options. Pretty sure that is there even if you don't have a remote start fob.

I understand the annoyance with app only remote start. My mom has that too with her Ecosport. I think it is a bit silly to have only the app but that is Ford being Ford.

All fob remote start on F-150 I believe even the lowest trim with it you could order required the push button in cab.

start x goes off of last setting prior to shut off.
Do you happen to have start x or know someone that does.
I'm pretty sure I read that it goes by last set too

I am pretty sure my starter x uses auto. My rear defogger is always on after a remote start and I also never use the rear defogger. I also notice the fan speed is high and when turn vehicle on the speed goes to usual low speed setting.

Only reason I really ask is because living in Louisiana this evening it will be 70° then in the morning it'll be 33° lol.

I have remote start on my 2023 XL by way of FordPass and it starts with heat, which I like. Never tried in hot weather so I don't know about starting with A/C(?).

The Start X should go off old settings when you turn truck off.
