I'm starting with the remote (no smart phone)
I'm using passive entry
HVAC is not set to SYNC
I've tried this many ways, has always exhibited the same results (pre & post 13.9.0)
Power off with engine is set to 5min (same results when it was 45sec)
Remote start will cool vehicle
I've tried the suggested test of opening passenger door first and the HVAC is on and cool air is flowing (don't know about warm air - not cold outside). Yesterday it was 103 F. outside and the fan speed was fairly high - nice cold air coming out. I opened the drivers door and the HVAC system shuts off (no light on auto - not even dim), I started the engine and it stayed off - had to press the auto button to get it back on - this is how it has always functioned.

I won't say it's useless as it does work, however it is not how I would have designed the system. I prefer the way my 2011 worked - came on where I left it last, and it stayed on when I entered the vehicle.

Lots of advice not to buy the 2011 GC as it was a "new" platform - great car, no real problems. Same advice with the 2014 GC, it's an even better car. I spent most of my working life as a technician (communications), it's a fact of life that if you build enough of anything you end up a few that have problems.

Thanks for all the help you provide.
my JGC Overland V6 with ATG does exactly the same.

Re: Auto A/C on Remote Start - Diag

Hopefully by tomorrow I can report the dealers have the fix. They tell me my Jeep was updated today with the 'fix'. It was in for weather map not updating, cluster replacement, tranny tsb, and ever shimming steering wheel. All were reported to be fixed except the last. I will post that information in the 'vibrating jeep thread'.

Re: Auto A/C on Remote Start - Diag

Do the software updates happen automatically or do we have to do something within the radio? Or does it have to be the dealer to run the updates?

Re: Auto A/C on Remote Start - Diag

I am happy to report that the updates they did yesterday to my Jeep did in fact fix the remote AC start issue. The Chrysler FS tech that was on-site had code on his device that has not yet been released to the dealerships. There is hope on the horizon for those waiting for this fix. The Auto light on the knob isn't lit when in remote start mode, but the Auto Climate is on within the navigation display screen. Once you hop in and start the vehicle the Auto light illuminates as one would expect. Verified with the windows down in remote start mode that the HVAC was indeed blowing (pretty hard I might add). So, to answer the question on how you do this update, you do need to take it to the delaer. This is a firmware update for the HVAC controller, not an update for the navigation/radio system.

All of the above. This update is dealer specific. Radio updates can be done by the end user. App updates can take place OTA.
