Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Yeah, if it's working properly, the A-C should run upon remote start as long as you left the climate control either in auto mode or with A-C on the last time you shut off the engine.

If you read this topic from the beginning, you will get the full story.

Thanks, I actually did read it from the beginning. My GC doesn't have the Comfort Systems included which is the reason I asked about the benefit of RS.

One more obscenely frustrating day at the dealer. I left my Jeep with them about 11am, with the part number and part description, and was told "Ok, we'll call you in a couple hours". I heard nothing from them (they close at 5:30pm) until I called them at 5:28pm. I was told "We contacted Chrysler and we're just waiting to hear back, we had expected to keep your vehicle overnight, that's why we didn't feel the need to call you"
....
Are you serious??
They expected to keep my Jeep overnight WITHOUT telling me anything, and they still haven't fixed any problem whatsoever. This is freaking crazy. So now I'm taking my Jeep back, and they said "Chrysler will call you tomorrow with an answer".
Guess we'll wait and see.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

I'm interested to hear what comes out of this as I'm having the same problem as well.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

I'm in a similar situation with mine.

Just hang in there, they will figure it out.

One week ago when mine was in the same thing happened, they did keep it overnight and the next day Chrysler said to replace the TIPM. They ordered one and I am scheduled for TIPM replacement tomorrow. Even though I have since furnished the part number (fix per Primerate), they want to first replace the TIPM per Chrysler. If that doesn't fix it, they will again contact Chrysler and ask about replacing the HVAC Control.

I think my dealers service dept. is doing the best they can. They have to listen to what Chrysler says to do. I have a feeling the TIPM replacement will not solve my issue. If it does, great. If it doesn't they will most likely go with the part number I suggested.

It is pain to make several trips in order to solve the problem, but that's because we are the first to report this issue. Eventually, others with the same problem will have an easier time.

My dealer has been good and even offered to come to my house to pick up my vehicle. Yeah, I wish it wasn't this complicated but I can't ask for more from my dealer.

Good Luck,

Joe

This issue, along with one or two others, are on my list. But, I'm going on a road trip next week and can't afford for them to screw something up that would keep me from having my Jeep on time for the trip. So I will be dealing with this mid July.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

JMarcher, will you post what your dealer tells you about this? I am curious if they will go ahead and replace the part with the info that we walk in with.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

My dealer told me that unless chrysler acknowledges that as the fix, they will not replace the part as they are not covered to replace it.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Same with my dealer. My vehicle is in today for the second time. They are replacing the TIPM (per Chrysler). I suspect I will be returning once again when Chrysler decides to replace the part (Primerates fix) I suggested to the dealer.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Update: The dealer replaced the TIPM and said the A-C and ventilated seat now work with remote start. I would think they should know if it's fixed or not, but I will confirm when I pick it up this evening and test it myself.

So possibly there is more than one part that can cause this issue???

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Another update: After replacing the TIPM the ventilated seat now comes on upon remote start. I'm not convinced the A-C is working as it should. The fan blows at low setting even though the fan was left on its highest speed before last shutdown. The green LED A-C indicator light does not come on after remote start until I enter the vehicle and press the start button.

I would like to know if others with remote start have the fan running on high speed and if the green LED indicator lights up.

I also seem to have one new issue. If I start without remote start, the climate control defaults to defrost position. Does this sound normal?

Thanks,

Joe
