Re: Does your windshield defroster come on with remote start?

I also noticed (once) that the windshield defrost was on and blasting air towards the windshield when it was around 25F degrees outside. As soon as I opened the door I saw the front defrost light go off and the fan turn down. I noticed the windshield starting to defrost so it was working for a while. I was probably entering the car 4 minutes after starting it from inside the house.

Next day, when there was really frost on the windows it didn't go on at all. Not sure why and I was disappointed as I was in a hurry to get my son to school and had to scrape the windshield.

I usually set my system to Auto but will double check next time.

Also, I'd like to be able to set the passenger seat heating to on when the driver's seat heat is turned on. I wish there were settings for this! It is my wife that is sensitive to the cold and not me so I can do without the driver's seat heater turning on and have hers on instead.

Re: Does your windshield defroster come on with remote start?

Would the dealer know how to fix this issues, my truck don't turn nothing on in cold weather, no heater no seat no defrost, until I open the door, it did start the cooling seats in summer and the a/c, winter is just starting in Chicago so I would like to get this fix.

Re: Does your windshield defroster come on with remote start?

I know I am replying to an old thread but I have the same issue with the front defroster w/ remote start. did anyone find a fix for this? or do I need to turn off the auto button and switch to front defrost every time i get out at night?

thank you

Re: Does your windshield defroster come on with remote start?

This most likely has to do with the remote start AC problem that I started a thread about. The defrost uses the AC compressor, and on some of the GC's (not all, no rhyme or reason), the AC compressor will not engage with remote start.

Re: Does your windshield defroster come on with remote start?

I've got a related but new issue. My defrost comes on and it gets so warm that frost forms on the inside of the windshield after I park I the train station.

Re: Does your windshield defroster come on with remote start?

I have a 2014 GC Overland and the seat and wheel turn on always. The front defroster turns on but I don't see the rear defrost lights on. Sometimes the heater turns off completely when I press the start button and sometimes it goes back to the way I had it set when I originally shut off the car. Running 13.48.3 latest update.

When using the remote start seats and wheel heats up, front defrost works, but the rear defroster doesn't kick on... And what really bothers me is when I open the Drivers side door and the heat shuts off... Car is still running, but heat won't kick back on until i press start. Anyone else have this problem???? I have a 14 GC.

This is pretty much what it does for me. I wasn't aware the rear defrost was supposed to turn on. The owners manual only specifies seat/steering wheel and climate. It makes no mention of specific climate functions. It doesn't bother me at all that it turns off when I open the door, because who doesn't immediately hit the start button when they get in? Heat resumes like it was before.

Re: Does your windshield defroster come on with remote start?

My 2011 Laredo X doesn't turn anything on but the heater. No windshield defrost, no rear window defrost, no heated seat. My Remote Start Comfort is set to ON but it doesn't seem to notice. I have to manually punch all three buttons when I get it but at least the vehicle is warm.

This is now slated for a June software update to address the rear defrost not coming on.
