If you put a remote start on it i believe you can.

Aftermarket remote starter i know for sure you can.
factory one depends on how or what they use.. some factory ones are aftermarket units programmed into the factory ecu.
a aftermarket remote start will do this, the factory one?
It's not recommended to try and modify your vehicle's ignition system in any way, as it could potentially compromise the safety and reliability of the vehicle. Tampering with the ignition system could also void your vehicle's warranty and violate local laws and regulations. Modern vehicles are equipped with complex electronic control systems that are designed to operate within certain parameters, and any modifications could cause unexpected problems. In addition, manufacturers often make changes to their systems and components between model years, so what worked on an older vehicle may not be applicable to a newer one. Instead of trying to modify the ignition system, you may want to consider other options for keeping your engine running while you're out of the vehicle. For example, many newer vehicles have an auxiliary power feature that allows you to run certain systems, such as the radio and air conditioning, for a short time without the engine running. Additionally, there are aftermarket accessories available click, such as remote starters and battery chargers, that can help you manage your vehicle's power needs while you're away from it. If you have specific questions about your vehicle's ignition system, it's best to consult with a qualified mechanic or the vehicle's manufacturer directly. They can provide guidance on how to safely and effectively operate your vehicle.
