Long story short I bought a 03 3.2 TL as a 3rd car. I was topping off the PS fluid this afternoon and noticed a sticker on the engine cover stating that the car has remote start. I can't figure out how to start it, I'm not sure I have an OEM key fob. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

To use your Remote Start feature, first, you have to be sure you are within 328 feet of your Acura.
  1. Check the owner's manual. If your vehicle has a remote starter, there will be information about your specific remote starter and how it works in your vehicle's owner's manual. ...
  2. Check your vehicle's key fob. The key fob for your car will have a special button if your vehicle has a remote starter. ...
  3. Test out the feature.
With the AcuraLink smartphone app, you can also research and send destinations to your onboard navigation system, see your vehicle's health report, activate your vehicle's remote start and stop features, remotely lock and unlock your vehicle, and so much more.

I searched my VIN and it didn't give me any information. And I'm sure I don't have OEM key fob. I just wish I would figure out what type of system it was so I could use the feature.

That looks like the OEM remote, But the TL never had remote start from factory so it's most likely aftermarket look at the notice sticker for clues of the maker like DEI makes remote starts or looking under the dash for the unit and write down the FCC id number lookup the replacement remote model #.

This is an '03. Honda Remote start never existed for that car.
