    This question has probably been asked a million times but what module does the dealer need to install on a 2016 explorer sport to make the Ford remote access work off my phone. I called a local Ford dealer and they had no idea what I was talking about.

    thanks in advance

    Well unfortunately it looks like the remote access module has been discontinued due to lack of interest.
    I have a 2016 and 2018 I’ve been trying to find modules for and I’ve been striking out.
    The perimeter plus security module is still available however the actual remote access module is discontinued except maybe for eBay. It does require a dealer to activate.

    Thanks I’ve have been experiencing the same issue. I’m starting to look at the Viper options

    Ford remote access actually allows you to start your car through an app on your phone

    Fortin makes the evostart2 which does the same thing but without a yearly cost. You can add it to the EVO ONE starter

    It was standard on my '18 Platinum and works well.

    The app allows several features that are both useful and informative.
