Yes, this is a known issue that they are addressing in the upcoming 'flash.'

Re: Auto A/C on Remote Start - Diag

Any idea when the fix will be available? I'm having the same issue.

Re: Auto A/C on Remote Start - Diag

We have two 2014 JGC Overlands. One was delivered early in the year and the other was just delivered a few weeks ago. The older one has the problem and the newer one works as it should (A/C is on with remote start and AUTO turns on when you hit the start button after a remote start). I hope the fix the old ones soon.

I am not happy that my 2014 does not have the same functionality (with many things) as my 2014.5 Grand Cherokee.

Studio, I check this particular thing just about every day.... I have no idea why it has not been released yet? as well.

This week is going to be unusually hot here in the Midwest. It will be over 100 heat index and my remote start won't help me. Sad.

I am driving the other Jeep, which has the working A/C, to break it in but not this week. It is in the shop getting the rear hatch painted as the dealer scratched and dented it putting the temp tag on.

Re: Auto A/C on Remote Start - Diag

This a/c thing is getting kind of weird. When my JGC was new I could remote start and a/c would come on, then shut off when I opened the drivers door. It would then turn on to my last setting when I pushed start button. Now it won't come on after I push the start button. I have to hit the a/c on/off hard button. Hope this update comes soon, and corrects this so it just stays on after remote start.

Bad enough that they scratched the liftgate but to also dent it? They must have went out of their way to be sure they put a dent in it. Humans at their best. Then again, some of the robots at JNAP aren't any better.

It doesn't take much (everyone be careful) as the hood and lift gate are aluminum. But yeah, he obviously didn't have steady hands and was pushing too hard when trying to start the screw (instead of starting by hand) I'm sure.

Only the hood is made out of aluminum. The liftgate is steel.

Hmm, I'll have to verify myself. Someone else (in a thread on this forum) said they tried the magnet test and found the hood and lift gate to be non-magnetic. I'll test later today.
