Isn't it amazing what you'll find when reading the owners manual.With the exception of the heated steering wheel, that all works for me. You need to leave the heater and heated seats on before you turn the car off. Then when you remote start it, they'll come back on. The AC/heater display will be off and you can't see the temp it's set to, but it is in fact on.
Page 3-25 of the owner's manual says:
● Vehicles with manual or automatic climate control systems will default to the last used heating or cooling mode.
● Vehicle equipped with heated seats may have this feature come on during a remote start. See “Heated seats” in the “Instruments and controls” section for more information.
Can't tell if serious...
OK, thanks. Didn't see that. But it's my wife's car, so thought I'd ask. Thanks.Can't tell if serious...
As the manual and the driver display states every time you get in the car, you have to step on the brake and press the ignition button prior to shifting out of park.
I don"t need to read the owner's manual to know that the seats are still cold when I get into the car that was remote started 10 minutes ago. The switch is in the high position but does not illuminate until the ignition button is pressed.Isn't it amazing what you'll find when reading the owners manual.
Sounds like a problem with your car, rather than a general issue then... I just checked, and on mine, the light on the seat heater switch comes on as soon as I remote start the car, and the seats do get warm. The AC/heater display does remain dark until I get in and press the ignition button, but the climate control is definitely working despite the display being off.I don"t need to read the owner's manual to know that the seats are still cold when I get into the car that was remote started 10 minutes ago.
