Velar remote start

Post by Stormew » Sat Nov 21, 2020 12:58 am

Can anyone tell me how their remote start works?
I am able to start my 2020 Velar with the app on my iPhone.
But when I get in to the vehicle it shuts off.

The message on the dash reads “press brake pedal to select gear. Engine started remotely”

From here anything I do shuts off the vehicle, whether I step on the brake pedal or activate the power steering.

Maybe that is normal, but it seems like my dash wouldn’t read that message. My previous Land Rover did not shut off but instead let me step on the brake and put it in to drive.

2020 Velar. Just picked up a couple months ago.
US model.

Thanks!

This seems to be by design now across the range, as my 2020 Evoque does exactly the same. The latest ICTP update and vehicle software update didn't change the behaviour either.

I can understand its a safety feature to stop someone jumping in and just driving away, but the message on the screen is obviously incorrect. Its also annoying that it used to work, but doesn't on our newer build vehicles.

Touching any pedals in the car when its running causes the engine to immediately turn off. You then have to restart it by pushing the Start/Stop ignition button.

Just to say, that’s not what happens with me. I unlock & I get in the car, that message is displayed - I press the brake pedal and the car comes alive ready for driving.
The thing that pees me off is, in my F Pace it used to turn the heated seats on but it doesn’t in the Velar (unless it’s a secret setting that I m yet to find?)

What year is your Velar?
What country are you in?

My previous Land Rover didn’t hear the seats either. But the heated windscreen does turn on if the temp is low enough.

Yeah I’ve got mine set to turn the front & rear windows on when it’s below a certain temperature.

Does your Velar have a new style gear stick? If so, this must be to ensure safety to prevent someone breaking in and driving away!
The old style pop up gear selector is not accessible until the car detects the key and the brake pedal is pressed. So there is no risk of car theft when the remote engine start is running.
I suspect this must be the reason in the new Evoque too!

Updated to 20C, remote start still works as before, ie press brake, car wakes up and engine keeps running.

Another selective bug from JLR?
