So get this guys, mine is doing the same thing, and you'll never guess what I was told.
"The air conditioning will not come on when the vehicle is remote started, and neither will the heater. EVER. The ventilated/heated seats will engage, as will the heated steering wheel depending on temperature."
I looked at him with amazement, and said
"So I've bought a 48 thousand dollar vehicle with remote start. And it won't cool/heat itself even If I leave the A/C or heater on when I get out?"
And the response?
"Yep"
There's got to be something done about this.

I guess this isn't an issue if you have the manual A/C controls, because if you leave those on, they'll come on. The auto system will not. WTF

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

That's the same answer my dealer gave me, so I had them get the keys to another GC on the lot to test. The other GC with the same auto system worked fine. After that they admitted it's a problem but have no fix. My Jeep liberty with auto controls worked fine. My wifes 200 with the same auto system works fine.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

I tried mine in manual mode, and the compressor still did not kick on until the door was opened.

Ya, I was referring to the lower model grand cherokees. They have actual dials for everything, rather than electronic controls. Not the auto/manual mode on ours haha

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

My 2011 JGC Summit worked fine. I now have a 2012 Summit and it will not cool with remote start. Something changed!

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

My 2012 laredo X has the same problem with my heater in the winter, doesn't actually heat anything until the Start button is pushed after entering the vehicle. Haven't tried with the A/C yet this summer but I suspect it's probably the same.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

I'm a little amazed that any dealer would tell you that the lack of cooling or heating is the way it's supposed to be.

For the record, my 2012 JGC Overland's remote works as it should. When it's cold, it starts heating and it turns the driver's seat heater to the low position. When it's hot, the A/C kicks on and the ventilated seat is set to the low position.

Anyone who tries to tell you that it designed to operate any differently is full of it.

I just double checked mine, rolled down the passenger window, and set the A/C to max, then shut it off, got out and remote started. Put my hand over the vent... Nothing at all. And the display screen for the climate is blank like the vehicle is off. Until you touch the driver door handle, then the A/C comes on.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Interesting. Never noticed that the display in the climate control isn't on when remote started until you touch the handle to unlock.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Long-shot here, but is it possible the Remote Start Comfort System needs to be activated through the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC).

I realize the Remote Start Comfort System technically should only control the heated steering wheel, and driver heated seat features in cold weather and in warm weather, the driver vented seat feature.

If the A-C problem is due to some sort of glitch, perhaps it is related to the EVIC setting for the Remote Start Comfort System.

Do you guys who are having problems have the Remote Start Comfort System activated?

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Yes, I have it activated. Even unchecked it and rechecked it to see if that would do anything.
