Behavior of comfort 'Auto On' feature

Hi,

I have the UConnect 8.4 comfort Auto On feature checked so that the heated steering wheel and seats are engaged upon start up. However, they only come on by default 10% of the time. The other 90% of the time, I have to manually engage. I was curious if this was unique to my vehicle or a common behavior across all JGCs.

Thanks

It requires you to use the remote start, and for it to be ~40deg or cooler outside.

I garage my JGC and most mornings don't remote start. The driver seat heater and steering wheel heater automatically come on when I get in and start the vehicle.

I don't think it has to be remote started as mine activates as long as the feature is checked and it's below 40 degrees.

Got it. I've been in California 90% of the time so that probably explains why I haven't triggered the temperature requirement. Thanks!

My rear defrost is always on, too, which I don't need since I'm parked in a garage. So I always turn that off every morning.

Mine doesn't turn on unless I push the button. Wish it was like yours.

On my screen, there is ---Controls. Bottom has --Settings.
My Dealer set mine to ---Dealer Default.
You can change this if you want. To what you want.
I am still looking into the AC.
I am slow with all this Electronic stuff.
First new car in 8 years.
Like another world.
