The heated steering wheel and climate will work with my Platinum's OEM bi-directional fob using remote start. The seat gets only slightly warm until you press the brake and start button. Then my heated seats go to max. Can't say for sure with a long range remote.Hi everyone, does all the features like heated/cooled seats, heated steering wheel will work using the long range/bi-directional remote starter with push button start? I installed compustar 2 way remote starter on my 2013 limited explorer with push button start but heated seats and steering wheel does not work when remote starting with the compustar. We have feels like -40’s this week here in canada and heated accesorries are not working! I am looking to replace it with plug n play bi-directional/long range remote starter kit. Happy new year and kindly share your experience using the long range starter kit. Thanks
Mine work too on my original fob( but only 50 feet range w/o obstruction) i am looking to get a long range bi-directional remote kit with working climate controlThe heated steering wheel and climate will work with my Platinum's OEM bi-directional fob using remote start.

I have the same issue, did you make it work? kindly share if it is working now. thanksJust tried that, didn't work either. Also tried with repeating FOUR times and didn't work.
I found a 2015 F-150 pdf for installing the long range remote start and in there the instructions are:
43. Push Button Start Vehicles:
These steps must be performed with the VSS module security jumper removed if previously
installed. For additional information refer to "VSS Module - Optional Vehicle Security Features".
1 Open door and press unlock.
2 Enter the vehicle with the vehicle key(s) and key fobs you wish to program.
3 Depress and hold brake pedal.
4 Press the start/stop button.
5 After the vehicle starts, press the start/stop button to shut down.
6 Repeat steps 3 and 4 an additional five times, ending in ignition ON, engine ON.
7 Release the brake pedal, the horn should honk 3 times.
8 Press the start stop/button on each fob you wish to program. The horn should honk each time the
button is pressed to indicate the transmitter has been programmed.
9 Cycle ignition to the OFF position to exit transmitter learn mode.
Tried that where I opened the door and closed it after pressing unlock and also where I opened door and left open. Didn't work either.
