Default Remote Start Upgrade

So apparently for 2016+ 3.0t Q50 models are built in with remote start. All that's required is for you to get the key fob that has the remote start button and have the fob reprogrammed and it'll allow you to have remote start.

I personally haven't tried it yet but it's worth a shot for anyone thinking of upgrading their car to have remote start.

Which model key fobs with remote start will work with the 2016+ Q50? I'm aware they need to be programmed by a dealer to work but knowing exactly which fobs work would be good to know.

I had the compatibility table for this somewhere, I can't find it at the moment.

I think you need a gen V Continental fob. It's definitely Continental. When I find that table, I can post it so you can see the crossover.

Wish I could tell you which model key fob. I just read that the new key fob is the one that is supposed to allow 2016+ 3.0 models to get the remote start if your car originally didn't have it.

I have the most basic silver sport so mine definitely didn't come with remote start but it would be nice to have that as an upgrade with something as simple as a new fob.

Interesting but I'm not able to access my car for another month. I'm currently out of state. If nobody else can chime in that has done this, I'll report back once I have tried this.

Default Remote Start Upgrade

2016+ q50s have always had the option from infiniti for remote start even if your car didn’t originally come with it via infiniti accessories. If you look at the install instructions for the remote start accessory you’ll see it’s just 2 new remotes along with programming them which is what vu ho has posted on the FB group along with setting up a group buy of sorts for the 5 button remote start keyfob so all you have to do is go to your dealer and have the key programmed. Shouldn’t cost you more than an hour of labor if that plus the key fob.
285E3-4HK0A is the part # for the key fob referenced in the install instructions.
