Hi and thanks for reading this and hopefully helping me.

I have a 2013 C-Max with Equipment Group 303A which shows it includes remote start. I bought the car used from a body shop after it had been in an accident. The key fobs that came with it are the none IA type hence no remote start button. I suspect the original keys were lost and replaced with the cheaper ones. A friend who is a technician at my Ford dealer has tried to program an IA fob for me using his computer and tried 2 new fobs but they won't program. He is now saying that the car is NOT equipped with remote start but I have my doubts.  I have been doing some reading and I understand that there might be 2 different IA keys and I think maybe the ones he got from their parts dept. were the wrong ones.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Look here http://www.etis.ford.com for details about your car.  Look under "Minor Features".  Note the site confuses Energi vs non-Energi vehicles.

 

There are, indeed, different FOB's.  Your owners manual is the place to start.  Just as a for-instance, my 2013 SEL without remote start has the three-button "Type 1" FOB.

 

 

Cheers.

Thanks for the info it was very helpful. It appears that even though it has the 303A package it does not have remote start. I find that strange but whatever it is what it is.

On the 2013, the remote start was not included as part of the 303A package -- it only added the Park Assist and Front sensors. The remote start was a separate option, just like the panoramic roof. You can find the brochure for the 2013 C-Max here.
