Re: 2014 AC not working with Remote Start

I had my vehicle in for this..told me its normal..BS...I called Chysler and talked to several people who stated they must go off what the dealer is telling them is normal operation. Needless to say the remote start system is pointless if it won't cool/heat the vehicle. I am sure it is just a software update, but how can so many people be clueless.

Milgrad, so AC works, but when you open driver door it shuts down. If you open any other door you will see that it works. It is still annoying and I wanted fixed. Have the dealer test other vehicles.

Re: 2014 AC not working with Remote Start

My ac fan does not turn on. I have tested numerous ways. The ac cycles but the fan us on the lowest setting and does not cool off vehicle.

Re: 2014 AC not working with Remote Start

In my '14 Summit - and I tried this sitting inside the Jeep - I leave the AC on Auto when I shut down. I hit the key to enable remote start. The system changes the fan setting to Hi and the Climate control to off. So I get fast-moving hot air. Then I press the Start button and the fan speed slows down, but the system stays off until I press the Auto button.
I tried turning off the remote start comfort setting (that's the one supposed to bring on the AC and the seat fans), but it still turns off the climate control. Waiting for a software release to fix this. I installed the May one (13.5) but it did not fix this issue.

Re: 2014 AC not working with Remote Start

No, but sometimes it can take up to a minute for UConnect to start up. All my Jeeps have been like this, and this one is not as slow as the last two. But it is annoying when you jump in, drive away, and press the button to make a call or ask for a song to play and get the message "Please wait".

Re: 2014 AC not working with Remote Start

Mine has started to take a lot longer for the screen to come on, then even longer for navigation. The radio will start playing before the screen comes on, but it used to come on instantly.

I think Obama should have taken a stronger stance with Xi about all this hacking. Maybe our uConnect would start working.

Re: 2014 AC not working with Remote Start

So I am getting my summit delivered on Monday so I was in at the dealership playing around. I had mentioned to the sales manager about this problem. He was baffled. He had not checked with service but as if that moment he had not heard of the issue. I brought him outside to the managers SRT and proved our finding. It was 111 today and when we opened the door the a/c shut off and he said that sucks. Haha.

Went to dealer today....was told that she has heard about this and there is currently no fix and did not think one was in the works.

I said that basically I have a remote start to burn fuel as it sits and asked her why would anyone get remote start in a car that does not have it? The only answer is climate.

We all need to call

I'm not getting if people that are complaining about it it's because it simply doesn't work or it's because it goes off when the drivers door is open?

I don't think it's a big deal going off when you enter the car, since you are about to turn the engine on in 10 secs. That doesn't make the remote start useless...

What's the big deal about that? I think that they can simply say that's the way it works and nothing will change... since there isn't a real thing to fix.

Re: 2014 AC not working with Remote Start

2014 Overland does the same thing. Completely useless feature and logically can not be they way it was intended. A convenience feature that is not. The system shuts off when entering then requires the driver to turn it back on. Also the Easy/Park system is yet again, currently another useless convenience feature not working as intended or stated. Put the vehicle in park then you have to push the park button to lower the vehicle, complete nonsense and shame on Chrysler for not rectifying this issue months ago, I guess record sales have got them cheering for now.
Other than that the Overland is great.

You can hit the button to lower to entry height as you approach your parking spot. When the car slows under 15 mph it will start lowering. The length of my driveway is enough for it to be fully lowered by the time I'm in the garage. I don't use it much, but did test to see how long it would take.
