Re: Remote start always turns rear defroster on

I noticed this morning my defroster came on with remote start. However, it's 27 (f) degrees here. Not sure if that makes a difference..

Re: Remote start always turns rear defroster on

I tried my remote start this morning. The rear defroster came on, and only the rear defroster. No HVAC, no heated seat. It was in the garage, so temp was probably 50; maybe in the 40s.

At lunch I tried it again. Heat came on, heated seat came on, and rear defroster came on. Temp was around 36 or so, IIRC. Maybe 38.

Tried a 3rd time after work. Only the heat came on, but no seats, and no rear defroster. Temp was around 34. Odd that only the heat came on even though it was colder than at lunch time when everything came on.

Re: Remote start always turns rear defroster on

Well the turning off and on is not working anymore, so there has to be something else.
Just like jeeters, in my heated parkade at 22C degrees the defroster comes on and only the defroster.

I know it's not a big deal, specially with winter fast approaching, but it's driving me nuts simply because I know it should not work this way

Re: Remote start always turns rear defroster on

Update to my post. Since it's been above 40 deg F or so, the rear defroster hasn't come on with remote start.. Only the one time when it was in the 20's.. Coincidence? Not sure.. Not sure if mine even has the option to come on when its a certain temp outside..

That's very strange.

Two days ago I started by remote and it was cold enough (freezing) and the heated seats, wheel, and rear defrost came on.
Next day it warmed enough that nothing came on. I particularly watched for the rear defrost but it wasn't on.
So it seems like its only affecting certain vehicles.
Weird.

Re: Remote start always turns rear defroster on

Tried my remote star today for the first time. OD temp was 28 deg. Ft and Rr defrost were on as well as the drivers seat heat. Noticed that the pass. seat heat wasn't on. Should it have been?

That's exactly how it should work. Only the driver side seat heats up with the remote start ( which makes my girl compain every time it's cold and only my seat is warm)

Re: Remote start always turns rear defroster on

great....mines always done that. I'd come out of the refinery and it would be 111 degrees out and the rear defroster would be on...I thought it was stupid but normal. I have a Laredo and I don't think I have this "comfort" setting just the boring old on/off knobs. looks like another trip to the dealer.

Re: Remote start always turns rear defroster on

My Overland was in the garage this morning (approx. 44 degrees F). Activated remote start, went out and looked, Rear Defroster was On and nothing else (No Heated Seats, Steering Wheel, Cabin Heat, Front Defroster). Hmmm...I wonder if the temp sensor is finicky enough to set off certain things and not others??

Re: Remote start always turns rear defroster on

This is getting weirder. I have noticed over the last few mild days that there is a pattern. When the temperature is below around 4 Celsius the comfort system turns on the defroster, seat, steering wheel and front defroster. If the temperature is above that, nothing turns on, and... If the outside temperature is above 15-20 ( like inside the garage) then only the rear defroster turns on.

I'm beginning to think the evil rabbit just likes to laugh at my confusion!

Re: Remote start always turns rear defroster on

With mine, its either all or nothing - I haven't seen just certain components switch on.
(However I'll keep checking, and if I do, Ill repost)

Re: Remote start always turns rear defroster on

I have the same rear defroster issue - turns on regardless of outside temp with remote start... Less than 40F, all three turn on: seat, wheel, and defroster.
