Car shuts off after about 15 min when turning it on remotely

Asked by Oct 11, 2012 at 06:46 PM about the 2010 Ford Escape XLT

Question type: General

I have used the remote to start my 2010 Ford Escape XLT in cold mornings and it works fine but the car shuts off by itself in about 15 min - and no one is near it so it can't be the car door thing. Is this normal? I was thinking it could be a feature to save gas or something like that but I can't find anything in the manual and all other cars I know remain on 'cause the whole point is for them to be warmed up before getting in so I'm confused. Thanks in advance for your help!

Simply re-start, the Ford engineers decided that if you start your car and are not ready to drive away in 15 minutes, plenty of time to warm it up even in the most extreme weather, then it will shut it's self off

Thank you for your answer! I can't access the link though, would love to read this and learn a bit more about it, I will try to find it. Thanks again!
