HVAC Turns Off after Remote Start (sometimes) when opening Door - 2016 WK2
I'm having a strange issue and want to see if others are seeing this. I have a 2016 JGC Limited - 75th Anniversary (3 weeks old). Intermittently - about 10-15% of the time, when I remote start the vehicle and open the door, the HVAC (which is set to AUTO) won't come back on.
I had a 2014 JCG Limited and had the same problem except that it happened every time. Once the TSB was applied, the problem was resolved and never came back.
So having my 2016, I'm extremely surprised to see this issue - but intermittently. I've tried to reproduce it to determine a pattern/cause - but no luck. What's interesting - when I get to the vehicle before opening the door - the HVAC is clearly on. Everytime I open the door, the HVAC AUTO light goes off and it takes about a second or two to come back on. However, once in about 10 or so times, that light doesn't come back on after opening the door and the HVAC is just off.
Extremely bizarre behavior!!! I mentioned it to my Service Manager today and said he would ping his Jeep rep to see if that's been seen before. I suspect not.
