Maybe I missed it, but seems to be that with FordPass, the remote start feature is already part of the package?.......................................

I don't think the dealer would provide that lol.
I have heard of the VSS module coming with install, but that is just physical install, and the rest is IDS aka ford tool.

Were you able to install yourself?
Not yet. I was about to order some modules however, with summer, it was not a requirement yet. I'll probably wait until this summer/fall.

Maybe I missed it, but seems to be that with FordPass, the remote start feature is already part of the package?


I know it was an add-on for earlier models (have the module installed in my '14), but was thinking it would be a bonus to have it already in place when I acquire a '20 ST. Not that it was hard to install at all, but considering the price jump on these, it would be nice if Ford included all this. Since the Remote Access program is being phased out, it would only make sense for the new technology to include it.
Yes, ford pass still work, which is great! However that still requires a phone and car in cell coverage. And it seems pretty slow/clunky still.

Not sure if the new Security Module comes with instructions. Does anyone know where the module plugs into? I "think" it goes under the drivers wheel under the dash....
I have the module kit [included Owner's Manual is NO help] and looking for the full INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for the VSS on my 2020 Explorer ST. The closest thing I have found is for a 2011~2015 F-150. It does show some diagrams and on the truck it plugs into behind the OBDii plug by the driver's left knee.
