INITIAL UPDATE REQUIRED- The first time you connect to Lightning McQueen you will need to run an update. When updating Lightning McQueen, please ensure that he is plugged into his power adapter. We recommend plugging him in first and then connecting to the app as a best practice. Most updates take between 9-12 minutes. If it takes longer than 12 minutes, try connecting to a different WiFi network. 

Once you have connected and run all successful updates you should see a "Start" button as shown below:
