Nothing I've read about so far would indicate such a thing is possible without reprogramming the keyfob and/or vehicle.dm2010nox said:hey, anyway to change the setting so that I can just press the 'start' button, and it will start? the default is that the 'lock' and 'start' have to be pressed sequentially, and that is a hassle.
I really doubt it. Sounds like a pretty good Safety Engineer determined via Hazard Analysis supported by a Fault Tree, that two independent functions are needed before the engine will rotate. And as a Systems Engineer myself I can tell you that is by the book, kudos to him/her. Somehow I hope you are able to recover those precious .05 seconds you were inconvenienced.dm2010nox said:hey, anyway to change the setting so that I can just press the 'start' button, and it will start? the default is that the 'lock' and 'start' have to be pressed sequentially, and that is a hassle.
Does a warm-start really cause that much wear/tear on an engine ? Come on - save the environment a little, please.leftypjb said:I had an after market remote starter installed on my '02 TrailBlazer. The function that I miss most in my '10 Equinox was that while the TB was running, I could hit the start buttons (2 together), wait 3 seconds and then able to turn the key toward off and pull it out...while the car remained running. Then could get out of the car and lock the doors and quickly run into a store or something. With the Chevrolet remote starter on my '10 Equinox, it doesn't allow this function. You need to turn off the car and then restart it with the remote...useless wear & tear. I agree with all the previous comments about why GM/Chevrolet did certain things.
Gary - We're on the same page - I don't know why people will sit at a RR Crossing with their cars running. Personally, I wish the car shut off automatically at red lights - like some cars do. I think thsat works like a golf-cart !GARYD said:I even shut off my engine at RR crossings when a freight train goes by. :
