2004 Remote start, stop also?

Four presses of the remote unlock button starts the engine. Can the remote stop the engine? I think this is a dealer-added feature and I find no mention of it in the manual.

I want to run the engine every few days from my 4th floor apartment because I seldom run it in the Winter. It is outside, covered. Yes, I may have to modify the cover to allow exhaust to exit.

Thanks for any help.

Think Spring! :)
 
The feature was not offered by Ford. So it was probably added by the dealer. All I can suggest is trying the way my factory Chrysler system works. Two presses starts my car and another two turns it off. Try pressing yours four times to see if it stops. Yours doesn’t automatically time out? Mine will only run for 15 minutes.

THANKS, will give that a try. Cheers

My ‘04 has a unique Ford 4-button remote with its own separate start button. The start sequence in the printed literature says to press lock button then the start button. If yours works you’re lucky. After spending a lot of money troubleshooting my remote start doesn’t work. I can’t begin to tell you how to kill the engine with the remote since mine has never worked. Best of luck.
