1. Why does the vehicle automatically shut down after 10 minutes or a total of 20 minutes?

For your safety and environmental reasons. It will shut down to prevent high levels of carbon monoxide within an enclosed environment such as a garage, where use is never recommended. As well, it will limit excessive idling and vehicle emissions.

2. Why does the user need to lock the doors as a requirement for remote engine start

For safety and battery life reasons. Locked doors will prevent vehicle intrusion or theft. It will also put most vehicle electronics into sleep mode thus preserving the battery.

3. Why does the engine need to shut off once the doors are unlocked or opened?

For safety reasons. As soon as the user unlocks the doors, the START+ will shut the engine off. Basically, the vehicle engine runs in two very distinct modes; either via ignition key or remote start. SMART+ will never affect normal vehicle operation. For instance, there is no risk of unintentional remote engine shut down while vehicle is in motion.

4. Is it possible to operate the vehicle wireless door locks, trunk or tailgate with START+?

For safety reasons it is not possible. The range of the original wireless key fob of 24 m (80 ft.) was designed to have the vehicle in line of site while operating door locks, trunk and tailgate. This range limit is required to prevent vehicle intrusion or damage by adverse weather conditions.

5. Why is the START+ remote control not as compact as some of the aftermarket remotes?

For quality reasons:

The batteries each have separate compartments; it requires more room but if the remote is dropped, it will not affect functioning.

START+ has a higher battery capacity with 1 year battery life and requires more space.

Toyota uses high quality components that require more space. For example, the exterior is thicker because the remote is shock and pressure resistant.

START+ has an additional internal rubber membrane protecting the electronics from water or dust.

6. Why is the remote engine starter not integrated with the wireless key remote?

For convenience. The remote would be much larger to accommodate all the features of both remotes.

7. Is it possible to have the seat heaters or ventilated seats activated when the remote engine start is activated?

Yes, the user must leave the seat heater or the seat ventilation ON before exiting the vehicle. The remote control does not directly control the seat heater and seat ventilation systems.


Why do wiper inserts wear?

Ultra-violet rays, extreme temperature, sand, salt and grit damage the rubber insert of the wiper.

Over time, this results in poor wiper performance and may also damage the windshield or place an excessive load on the wiper motor and linkage.

Why inserts?

If the blade frame is in good condition, changing wiper inserts is the economical answer to restoring your wipers to peak efficiency.
