Is that a new feature for the 2014 model?

My 2012 will run without the key FOB until it runs out of gas.

There is multiple thinks going on here, I suggest you read up on the treads on this becasue I can't explain this again. There are certain 2014 JGCs that have an issue with the HVAC controller. Other than that, yes the air comes on with auto start (or heat) depending on ambiant temperature. Your settings are recalled on entry/start.

Read the threads and I explain this in great detail, however there are some people having an issues with this Chrysler is working on it, my understanding is July fix (unconfirmed at this time)

That was my understanding of what happens as well. I usually would just leave the keys in my car if my girlfriend or someone was staying in it while I ran into the store or something quick...

I'm not sure if the behavior changes if you lock the car while its running and take the key with you. I don't know why this would be any different though...I was going to try this after work today.

Remote start it with the dogs inside, I do it all the time works fine (for short periods***) if it is a 2014 check to make sure the start air works first though please! again there are some issues

The point was...Why does he need to use remote start if he's running into a store quick and leaving someone or his dog(s) in the car...why not leave the car running, lock it, run in and do whatever and come back. To my knowledge the dogs or person(s) would just have to deal with the annoying beeping sound from the key not being detected.

I don't see A/C working upon remote start to be a deal breaker for this scenario.

Both situations work fine... just the HVAC module doesnt work right on some 2014 in remote start only.

Welcome!!
I just picked up my 2014 Overland and when I Remote start it the Air-Cond. is working when my wife opens the passerger side, but when I open the drivers side BOOM! the whole climate system shuts down.
I thought I could come on here and get an answer! But to my surprize, everyone is having a similer problem. I hope they can get this solved real quick!!!

I'll try the passenger first. But even with drivers door it comes back on 2-3 seconds later anyways.

There are 2 problem conditions reported. Both at this time will require a WiTech update not released yet. One is remote start auto climate not working at all. Second is remote start climate works but will not recall "auto" setting on driver start. It is recommended to try updating your UConnect but this has fixed very few issues related to the remote start A/C concern as the problem appears to be with the HVAC module.
