Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

I've asked in other threads but haven't gotten a straight answer. Does anyone know if it is possible to have the rear defrost / heated mirrors engage automatically with the remote start? I've tried turning off the car with the rear defrost engaged, remotely started it with temps in the low 30s but no rear defrost.

Thanks!

I was wondering about this last night while driving during a snow storm and thought it would be a nice feature to go with the heated wheel and seat.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

I think you answered your own question. I doesn't happen. I agree it would be a great feature. My Buick Enclave would remote start with the rear window defogger and outside rearview mirror heaters on if I shut it down with them on, and that was really nice in the winter when I had to leave it outside in the snow.

Well just this a.m. i hit the remote start,after i got in the jeep i found the heater on. But this was the 1st time under 40 that i've used the remote start. After that i saw that the heated wheel,seat and rear defrost[also rear view mir.]was on.All i can tell you for now is i have a 13gc overland and however i have my settings thats what happened.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

I believe the remote start feature will turn on the heat, rear defrost, (This activates the heated side mirrors), heated seat, and heated steering wheel, if so equipped, when it is activated below 42*F. That's how the remote start feature is designed to work in cold weather.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

Just started getting below 40 degree temps here. I'll have to check and see if the rear defrost and mirror heaters actually come on or not. I know the seat and steering wheel did heat up on remote this morning, but I didn't check the rear defroster and mirrors. Doesn't say anything about them in the manual. Hope they do!

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

Remote started a couple times today with temp around 35, and seat, steering wheel, rear defrost, and mirror heat all came on. The rear defrost button light was on. Since it wasn't snowing, I turned off the rear defrost, but when I remote started later it came back on again. I haven't had the hvac update for remote start done yet. I hope when I do it doesn't change the way this works. Satori, don't know why it isn't working for you.

Re: Rear Defrost with Remote Start?

I don't think my rear defrost comes on with a cold weather remote start, but I"m not sure because I've unchecked that box due to a related gripe..

What I'd really like is to have the option be "comfort with remote start" .. because when I check the box that gets me the handy bunwarmer and fingerwarmer on a cold remote start, I also get the bunwarmer and the fingerwarmer on ANY start in cold weather.. which is a pain, because I need neither once the car is warmed up.. I unchecked it because it is easier to turn the warmers on for that first start than have to keep turning them off for the rest of the day.

just my $0.02

I noticed this today for the first time, drove the Jeep got it nice and warmed up, stopped at a store for five minutes came back out manually started the Jeep and both the seat and wheel heated up. Did not need or want it to come on Jeep was already warm. Also the check box for auto comfort on when starting does not stay checked. When I had my 11 Overland the only time the seats and wheel would come was with remote start, which is the way I prefer it.

I have the box checked, and my steering wheel, drivers seat, mirrors, and rear defrost all turn on and get toasty warm after a remote start under 40 degrees.

My only gripe is the climate system shuts off when I open the drivers door after a remote start (not the passenger side though).
