Follow our quick and easy guide on how to use your Mustang's remote rev feature!
As one of the most interesting new features on the S650 Mustang, remote rev is sure to be an enthusiast's favorite. When adding a new exhaust to your Mustang, the urge to show it off everywhere you go is shared by just about any car enthusiast. Now you can do it without having to get in your car thanks to Ford’s new remote rev feature. To ensure you know exactly how to use this function safely, follow the instructions below.
The remote rev feature on the 2024 Mustang allows you to use your key fob to remotely command engine speed, or rev, your S650 from outside of your vehicle.
According to Ford, the remote rev will not function or will deactivate in the following conditions:
The engine is off.
The remote control is not working.
The remote control is out of range.
The transmission is not in park.
The accelerator or brake pedal is pressed.
The engine oil temperature is too high or too low.
The engine coolant temperature is too high or too low.
The engine speed is not at stable idle condition.
The automatic engine shutdown is activated.
