03 remote start doesnt want to turn off

So, I just found out today by accident that my 03 250 lariat has remote start. Talk about weird, I went in and then heard what sounded like a diesel with a really loud turbo running, but wait I have a super loud turbo... Is some one stealing my truck? I run out and find my truck idling with the doors locked and my keys ar in my pocket

So I'm excited, but worried because I can't figure out how to get the remote start to disengage. I have gotten in and turned the key to the start position, accessory position, locked/unlocked the doors both with the fob and the in cab controls

How exactly does this thing work my fob is a 3'button just un/lock and panic. I played with my fob a bit after I finally got the truck off and got it to remote start again but I was just randomly pressing the buttons

What is the proper procedure for this on and off

Thanks guys

That is crazy I never knew they put on factory remote start that long ago. Makes me wonder if mine has it. Or maybe you have a aftermarket system and dont know it.

I'm not sure, but it uses my factory key fob so logic tells me it should be factory

I have a Viper remote start/security installed in my 6.0 and it's a 6speed. Gotta make sure I leave it in neutral.
Haven't ever left it in gear and tried to start it, nor do I want to see what would happen. lol

Sorry I can't help.

First, are you 100% positive its a factory key fob? Only reason I ask I have a 03 XLT, bought new with key fob, had one break so I had to get a new one realizing it was a crime stopper system, not ford. second, there is a way to program other remotes to work with other systems. I looked into adding remote start and the sales guy told me he could use my same fob for it even though it wasn't same brands. So you probably have a aftermarket start system. Look under your dash to see if the control box is under there. Third, I could be wrong here but I think the button config to start truck should also shut it off. Hope this helps some.

A friend of mine years ago drove his honda through the garage door cause he left it in gear. Funny as hell. His parents didn't think so, since it was their garage.

I have a aftermarket kit for my 05 and it uses the factory fob. I don't have it installed yet but iv read the manual and I believe that you hit lock 3 times to start it and the same to shut it off. It will also have a timer, so probably after 10 or 15 minutes it would shut off.
