I looked into this and as long as the vehicle has SYNC Connect and remote start can be added via fob with the kit listed on accessories.ford.comHas anyone tried this on the 2020? From looking, it seems the ford accessories allows this to still function with the kit, vss, fob, antenna.
A remote start was another project I was thinking of.....please share.I've also wondered this question and found, no one with a 2020 explorer that has posted yet. I found how to add ford factory remote start, but not the foglights. However forscan has a lot of work left to update their compatibility/features to the 2020 explorer still.
Looks like as long as you have copilot 360 (which all 2020 explorers should) and ford pass (which I think all explorers have?) you can just add the remote kit from accessories.ford.com. The non 2020's had to add the security module and the remote. From what I found, we should just have to add the remote and/or long range antenna/remote, then enable via forscan, or take it to the dealer to enable. You have to sync your remote start fob like you sync your keys. But for sure DIY able.A remote start was another project I was thinking of.....please share.
By Sync Connect, is that, FORDPASS™ CONNECT 4GWI-FI ?I looked into this and as long as the vehicle has SYNC Connect and remote start can be added via fob with the kit listed on accessories.ford.com
No programming is needed, just plug and play.
This includes ALL 2020 police interceptors as they all have SYNC connect.
Ha, I'll just pick order and pick them upFYI, the total cost for the above items is $76.50 less on Shop For Parts By Year | Auto Nation Ford White Bear Lake
you have to install the extra module plus get the fey fob. I think the ford pass costs money after X years?I'm curious about this option. I can remote start my XLT using the Ford Pass app. Can I use the key fob in lieu of the app without installing additional hardware? The fob is $95 and installed is an extra $255.
Were you able to install yourself?Thank you jmr061!
I didn't realize the ford pass was free for life. So at least we have a way to remote start most the time. I will order these parts above this summer and install when I also do the trailer brake. I'll post updates when I do for locations on plugs etc.
