My grandfather has a 2013 limited. He had two fobs, lost one, bought another and had a locksmith program it. So now on the two fobs(original and new), they start and lock/unlock the car but neither will remote start the engine.

What can I have him do? Hes in AZ and Im in MI or I would hop on it with forescan.

If it one of those all-in-one fobs, it has to be programmed by a dealer (or locksmith). I'd have him call tbe original lock smith and ask him.

Try this:

Learn Remote Start System to Vehicle (Key Start Vehicles Only)
NOTE:
Make sure the brake pedal is not depressed during this sequence.
37. Press the vehicle's unlock button located on the driver's door. Make sure all doors are unlocked.
38. Put the key in the ignition.
39. Cycle eight times rapidly (within 10 seconds) between the 1 (OFF/LOCK) position and 3 (ON) position.
The eighth turn must end in the 3 (ON) position. The doors will lock, then unlock, to confirm that the programming mode has been activated.
40. Wait for 10 seconds and the remote start module will program itself to the system.
After 20 seconds, you will automatically exit the programming mode. The doors will lock, then unlock, to confirm that the programming mode has been exited.

Is the remote start function enabled in settings menu in the instrument cluster?

Candurin, thanks for the reply, but this is a push button model.

Omar, I will have him check to see. Thanks

You may also have to reprogram the fob (sorry, when you said all in one, I was thinking IKT). Have a look in the service instructions:
