As far as #5 goes, I saw on our forum how to start the car remotely without the extra remote starter (but I can't find it quickly). I tried it but never use it myself. The new Sorento they found for me already had it so they threw it in free.
Try this 16 second you tube video I found. That should do the trick. Remember it and leave your separate remote home.

  1. My Sorento is equipped with remote start. However it bothers me that the remote start requires a 2nd fob on my keychain. Just makes my keychain even more bulky.....
I put the OEM remote start in my 2020 SX. According to my Remote Manual:
For OE REMOTE
1. Tap Lock button and tap Lift Gate or Horn button shortly within three(3) seconds. Engine start is not available for five seconds after doors open.
2. To stop the engine, tap Lift Gate or Horn button shortly for a 1/2 second

I've not yet tried the Horn button, but it does work with the Lift Gate button.

I presume that the remote start capability you speak of isn't the same as the UVO remote start. I can use the remote start on my phone with the UVO app, but the trick with the key fob doesn't do it.
