Is there any possibility of being able to have my car start and/or run for more than twice and for more than 10 minutes.
Where I live we get anywhere from -5 to -25 degrees C and sometimes a lot of freezing rain. Also, is there anyway that the blower fan
can be adjusted to only start (when car started by remote) to blow when the heat starts rather than blowing cold air full force when the engine starts.
Sometimes this causes condensation on the windows inside which I either have to wipe off or wait till the heat clears the fog on the inside window.

Have you tried a block heater? Engine oil or coolant heater?

Don't know about remote start frequency enabling.

Makers who set the heat to come on "high" when remotely started are absolute utter idiots. There is no cure for that disorder.

It's all covered in your cars owners manual.

Link to the online manual 2012 Lacrosse

With any of my GM vehicles equipped with the auto hvac controls, when remote started (auto mode on or off) the fan speed would ramp up based on engine temp. The auto settings are typically configured thru the DIC.

AFAIK, the remote start cycles cannot be altered. Two, ten min. starts, thats it.

Then you gotta do it the Neaderthal way, with a key!
