It might take long for your vehicle to remotely start sometimes. To avoid battery drainage, when the vehicle engine is not running the vehicle is in a state of “sleep”. Therefore, when an Engine Start command is given, a “wake up” message is sent to the vehicle and it takes a little time for the vehicle to boot up and acknowledge the Engine Start command.
