Yeah, that's what I figured. Oh well good luck getting to the cause of the problem.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

I spoke with Chrysler and didn't get much help. I was told to try another dealer.

As was I... Haha I haven't yet, and I probably won't. But I've got a reference number for a ticket they opened on it, and hopefully this email will get somewhere.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

I am going to the second dealer tomorrow. I don't expect any resolution. I do need them to look at an issue with the ac though. On most days, in auto or manual mode it just doesn't get as cold as you would expect. It even will suddenly get warm for a second then go back to cool.

Holy Hell this is weird, mine does the EXACT same thing. In fact, that's what i went into the dealership today for mainly, and discovered the remote start issue just before i went in. Seriously exactly the same issues. haha And today they told me "feels cold enough to me" and didn't do a thing.

My base laredo E does the same thing. I have factory remote start and same results as the more expensive trims.

So, I figure it really is a software thing or perhaps our WK2's were built with a batch of defective compressors. I have to imagine the two issues are related, but I am by no means mechanically inclined.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

My 2012 does not have this issue. I have noticed using remote start that the A/C will be working and the seat cooling is on low when I get in. I noticed the seat cooling mainly because with the black interior in west Texas you can tell when the cooling has been working and when it has just started. The A/C will have the cabin cooled down quite a bit in a few minutes.

Add me to the list with the A/C issue. When remote started, the fan is blowing with no compressor for cooling until I hit the push to start. Also noticed the air is not as cold at times. This is a big deal for me living in SE Texas. I feel myself constantly adjusting the vents thinking I'm just not getting the air.

I really hope there is a fix for this. Maybe Milous or someone with inside info can fill us in on whether it's a known issue with a TSB in the works.

I need to swing by the dealership this week and will check on other GC's on the lot.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

First dealer said they called Chrysler and were told it's a known issue with no fix. Chrysler told me to try another dealer.

I really hope so too, cause not having AC when it gets blazing hot definitely sucks, haha. Milous! Save us!
