Autofocus with remote

I searched but could not find anything . I have a K5 and using a cheap universal remote to do some self portraits. Is there a way to use autofocus with a remote?
Thank you

In the Custom Setting Menu Setting Items on about page 9 it refers to AF with Remote Control, whether to use autofocus when shooting with remote control. Directs you to page 148 for moreinformation.

Try out JJC RM-E5. Please TRY before you buy. Some people have reported that it does not work.

Cheers!
