Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

I recently had the Heating/AC flash done, which addressed the fan stopping when opening the door after a remote start. After the flash, rear defroster/mirror defrost does indeed come on with remote start below the specified outside temperature.

Even after the HVAC reflash, the max defroster fan setting will shut off when you open the drivers door after a remote start (like it's supposed to)...but the whole climate system itself doesn't shut off completely like it did before the reflash. That was my problem...having to manually turn the climate system back on after a remote start.

And yes, the rear window defroster & outside mirror warmers now automatically come on too after a remote start below 37 degrees.

How do you know they are on? Is the center stack light on for the rear defroster?

My 2013 Trailhawk turns on seat and rear defrost when remote started.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

Well, I have my vehicle dropped off for the ORC recall. Doing an oil change too. I also requested an HVAC update so my defroster comes on with remote start when it's below 40 degrees. Lets see if that works. Will update thread with TSB code if it does, since no one else did for me.

Thanks!
My 2012 performs various functions depending on the outside temps.

Above 28 or so degrees, the heat kicks out as soon as the engine warms up. (Unless it's summer! Then the A/C kicks on!)

Below approximately 28 degrees, the driver's seat heater comes on 'high' setting, and the rear defrost (and mirrors) come on. And of course as soon as the engine warms up it kicks out heat.

My wife wishes we could set the passenger seat heater to come on too!
Especially in our MN sub-zero winters.

If yours isn't doing that, I would complain to the dealer.

In my case, stuff starts melting off the mirrors and back window while I'm cleaning off the side windows. I don't need a light to tell me it's working at that point.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

So I just had the latest HVAC update done. TSB 24-005-15

Did a remote start this morning and it was 38 degrees. The rear defroster turned on! I'm not sure, but I think the front defroster comes on too now. Unless I left that on last night by accident.

Woot, I'm happy now.

I also have a 2012 and I believe the heat, rear defrost (including heated mirrors, if equipped), and heated steering wheel all come on w/remote start when the ambient temp. drops below 42*F. That information can be found in your owners manual.

Same with my 2012 along with the heated seats.
