SUV is locked and you press the button 2X correct? Not shocking that it doesn't work but surely this should work?

Hi sagosto. As moose66 stated above: Press and release the lock button (even if the doors are already locked), then press the start button twice.

Instructions are in the Owners Manual.

Good luck.

Owner's Manual? Instructions? Are those some kind of foreign things? :D
Going by my experience as a moderator on the Explorer forum, about 1/3 of the questions asked have answers that are in the Manual.

Not saying the OP is in this group, but most people will rather jump on a forum to ask a question rather than look it up themselves. I value the forum advice/opinion, but I would rather go straight to the source if I can.

and 9 times out of 10 the response given will be "have you read your owners manual?"....lol....Some people tend to think people who ask such questions that are easily answered by reading the owners manual are just too lazy to do the reading on their own and want someone else to do ithe work for them. :ROFLMAO:

You are all "kind" of right. I didn't check the manual as it was such a simple function. And, the car was locked. I didn't realize you had to LOCK it again before double-clicking the start button.

I am good -- thanks. :)

Hi sagosto. Yes..."Press and release the lock button (even if the doors are already locked), then press the start button twice."

Good luck. ;)

What's a key fob? Just kidding. I've been fortunate PAAK has worked flawlessly for me since the last time I had to reregister it (or the dealer reset it after service). I've primarily used PAAK to start and in occasions when I used the key fob, it seemed to cause a temporary glitch where the chimes are the non-standard symphonic sounds. Also, I've discovered the LincolnWay skill on Alexa and works like a charm to start my Aviator!

You may be happy to learn that ensuring the vehicle is locked prior to remote starting could prevent someone from just jumping in and driving away.

While there are certainly software glitches and things that are head scratchers, I would think this is a desirable feature.

I understand locked but not the second lock. Either way, the Lincoln app doesn’t work as a key fob so I’m surprised this works :)

I believe the requirement for the second lock action is so the system recognizes an attempt to remote start the vehicle. In the computer (chip), it is coded to accept the remote start feature only after the door lock has been activated twice in succession, in a predetermined amount of time.

That makes lots of sense actually
