remote start question....
I got my remote start installed after the purchase and I don't think I have any manual. Every time I start my car the heat and defroster start as default, not a good idea in the summer. Is there a way to start the car with the a/c on? I think heat comes up even if I shut off with the a/c on... any ideas?
Well it was 101 today where I live. I got it my Jeep after it running for 15 minutes from the remote start, rear defrost was on and the vents were blowing hot air!? How hot does it have to be for the air conditioning (which I left on before I got out) to work? I have heard of others saying the same thing.
1) Is this a factory installed remote start?
2) Is this an ATC (Automatic) or MTC (Manual) HVAC control head?
3) During remote start, does the Gauge Cluster properly display the outside ambient temperature?
...I might be able to help you guys.
Well, I bought the Laredo based model, the dealer installed factory remote start. I am not sure what you mean by "2) Is this an ATC (Automatic) or MTC (Manual) HVAC control head? " I see no option on the display to make any changes to the remote start system. Dealer also installed one of those mirrors with Garage opener, now my compass doesn't work either. Mirror has no compass, just garage opener and dim mirror feature.
An MTC system has no LCD display and three knobs. One for blower, one for driver temp and one for passenger temp.
I'm very interested in hearing about this, as I've spent many hours testing both remote start and the HVAC interaction.
Please let me know about the ambient temp display as I believe that to be the root of the problem.
Here is some info on mine... Base Laredo 4x4, off road package, factory installed remote start, MTC. I tested this during lunch. Outside temp according to the local news = 76, inside temp according to the Jeep control center (see pic below) = 64. I stood next to the Jeep when I started it so I could see the MTC. Before the engine fired up the rear defrost came on, then the engine stared. Most of the time if I drive the Jeep for a short distance and remote start it again the rear defrost will not turn on. Today has been a little cool out. Most days it has been 95+ out and the rear defrost still comes on. I hope this helps.
