Needing some luck guys, I dropped off my Taos this morning at the dealer for a remote start install (part of the deal at time of purchase). Well just my luck they wanted to keep it for another day. I’m now in a courtesy vehicle, hoping they can figure it all out.

It’s done got the extended range remote and all. Unfortunately the tech left black fingerprints all over my pillar, how do you not wash or wear gloves when touching a light colored headliner color?

Lucky ducks! I just purchased a 2022 Taos Comfortline in Canada last week (I believe its the SE lines in the states) and I was told the SUV is "remote start prepared" but it's not available yet in Canada. Bummer. I've been told to keep checking back every 6 months.

How was it updated… by the dealer ?
No if you hit the wrench or i button (I don’t remember which one I hit) in the car it will call carnet through the vehicle. I explained that I had the remote start installed by the dealer and needed the app updated to show I could remote start my Taos. They put me on a 30sec hold said the order was submitted and a day later it showed up in my app.

Hi there I got extended remote start installed today and got a new key with the 2x button 👌
Hello, so you ended up with the remote start working directly from your new key fob, without any other key fob need? Do you mind giving us the detail about the process? What do you have to install to make it work? I have a S model and I want the factory solution to remote start the car. But I'm afraid to have to keep two key fobs with me all the time.

Thanks!!

This is the Extended Remote Start that just recently ( February ) came out for Volkswagen Taos.. Its a new key that’s programmed to work like your regular key but it’s got a new button 2x. The whole thing will run you about $500.00+ after installation labor unless Volkswagen is nice enough to install it for free.
