When the weather gets cold, one of the most painful experiences, for reasons we can’t fully explain, is getting into a cold car. There’s something about waiting for that interior to warm up that is just near unbearable. Somehow, it feels colder than simply walking in the outdoors.
Luckily, a variety of modern features have been invented to combat this inhumane torture. Heated steering wheels, heated seats, and, of course, remote start, have all helped the human race make great strides towards a brighter future where no one need suffer the pain of a cold vehicle.

How do you use remote start on a 2019 Volkswagen Atlas?
For remote start to work on your Volkswagen, the vehicle must: be ready to drive, have plenty of fluids, have the transmission in park, have the doors, hood, and trunk closed, be locked, have a charged battery, and have no indicator-activating engine faults.
Once these conditions are met, you must simply:
- Press the lock button on your remote start remote
- Within next three seconds, press the remote start button twice
After you do so, your vehicle’s indicator lights should flash to notify you that the remote start procedure was successful. Remote start will stay activated for up to ten minutes before you get in the car. To renew remote start for an additional ten minutes, simply perform the above procedure again. After two ten-minute periods have been activated, the engine will have to be cycled on and off to access more.
