That was one of the reflashes I requested my dealership to install for me (along with the radio update & 3rd tranny reflash), but they told me I already had the latest updates for my vehicle.

I will have to check mine the next time I start it under 40 to see what all turns on but as I said in other threads most times I look the checkmark for auto on comfort is unchecked yet seat/wheel does heat when under 40.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

Like others mentioned here, my heated seat and steering wheel do come on with the remote start (under 40) but the rear defrost does not. I have not had the latest flash done.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

August Build Overland with 13.38.52 installed. Auto on works (even though the check doesn't show) but no rear defrost/mirrors when under 40 degrees either starting remotely or in vehicle.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

If I uncheck the auto-comfort settings, will the heating still come on on remote start in cold weather?

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

So today with it snowing out and cold I did the remote start. I swear the rear defrost came on automatically for the first time ever. The only difference I can think of is the front window and rear actually had a good cover of snow. I'll have to keep an eye on it.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

Mine comes on even if I've parked in the garage, as long as the temp is low enough.

Mine comes on automatically also, whether its snowy or not.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

was wondering about the rear defogger. I shut the headed steering wheel and the heated seats off in the menu. The rear defogger comes on. It's freezing here in NYC.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

With the latest software update the rear defroster comes on when temp is below 40 I believe.
