Hello,
I have an 2016 MDX.
It is winter and i would like to start the car from in house to let it heat.
I use the Engine start from the remote.
If i am not outside and somebody try to open the door, does the engine stops ?
Can a stranger drive away with the car ?
Thank you

Usually the step to use the remote starter is, press the lock button and then hold start button, so your car is locked when started remotely.
If they somehow open the door, i am not sure what safety is built in but i am guessing that unless they have spare key they wont be able to unlock the steering column.

Not only that once in the car the driver must step on the brake pedal and press the start/stop button to bring the car to life. So, even if someone can get in they cannot bring the car to life without a key.

Nope,
It is outside.
In the garage i will never start it. Not even with door open.
