If I have a remote start fob do I have remote start?

Hey Gents,

I'm looking at purchasing my first Pontiac next week! She's a 2008 G6 GT Coupe. My question is this... The car has a remote start fob. I didn't even think to test it and now I'm wondering... If the car has a remote start fob, it must surely have remote start, correct? Thanks!

Scott

if it opens the doors id assume its the right one and should also remote start the car.

Not 100% true. There is always the possibility of having a remote start key fob matched to your car. I have it and everything else works, but I plan on adding remote start later..whenever I get to it.

Just verify it works.
You have to hit LOCK first. Then hit START within 5 sec.
You can also go through the information center in the radio. Press "MENU" until you see "REMOTE START:ON or REMOTE START:OFF" Then you can at least see the setting and make sure it's enabled and test to make sure it's working.
The check engine light must be off for the factory remote start to work.

^ correct and I think you can only restart it once more, until the key is inserted.
