Remote vehicle start feature in the Chevrolet Captiva (2006-2018) allows drivers to start their vehicles remotely using a key fob or a smartphone app. This feature is especially convenient during extreme weather conditions, as it enables users to warm up or cool down the interior of the vehicle before getting in.

To use the remote vehicle start feature with a key fob, the user typically needs to press and hold the remote start button on the key fob for a few seconds. This action sends a signal to the vehicle's engine to start, and the vehicle will run for a predetermined amount of time, usually around 10-15 minutes, before automatically shutting off.

Some newer Chevrolet Captiva models also offer remote vehicle start capabilities through a smartphone app. Users can download the manufacturer's app, connect it to their vehicle, and use the app to remotely start the engine, lock/unlock doors, check vehicle status, and more from their smartphone.

It's important to note that while remote vehicle start adds convenience, users should always follow safety precautions and never leave their running vehicles unattended, especially in enclosed spaces. Additionally, users should refer to their Chevrolet Captiva's owner's manual or contact a certified Chevrolet dealership for specific instructions on how to use the remote vehicle start feature with their particular model year and trim level.
