Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Sorry for being late to the party.
2012 Overland, Feb 12 build.
Been in the 90's the past few days...turn on vehicle with remote start, seat cooler is on low, fan blowing like crazy--no cold air until I press start button.

Update: AC light turns on as soon as door handle is touched, otherwise fan is just blowing.

So my dealer left me a voicemail today and said "We have a call in to a Jeep Service Tech Specialist, and he is going to set up an appointment with you within the next two weeks to discuss the issues with your Jeep"
I guess I can be happy they at least are giving me somebody with some know-how, but my problem still remains untouched. Guess I'll keep you guys updated about the appointment.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

so I am having the same issue with my new jeep - 2012 overland summit

I know this feature worked before as I remember the day I picked it up it would do it in the parking lot of the dealer and then one day I started the car while it was in the parking lot and the car was cool when I got there. Now it will not do it. I do notice some of the things mentioned through the thread. Fan will blow but compressor will not kick on until I walk up and go to open door. Hopefully there will be some resolution to this. I will have to take the car over to the dealer and see what they say.

Mine is also a Feb. 2012 build. Overland Summit & does exactly as yours upon remote start..... ventilated seat on low, fan blowing on high w/no cold air until I touch the start button.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

My Overland Summit is a Jan. 2012 build and had the same exact A-C problem, along with the ventilated seat not turning on with remote start. Replacement of the TIPM corrected both problems. The green LED indicator for the A-C still doesn't come on until I push the start button. Of course in auto mode the green LED will never illuminate.

If I leave the A-C on and the fan on high speed, it will remote start with the A-C compressor on and the fan is blowing at a reduced speed. If I leave the climate control set in auto mode, it still works and it seems as if the fan will blow at a higher speed depending on how hot it is.

I'm happy this problem was resolved and it only took two visits to the service department. Too bad Chrysler can't figure out why the FCW doesn't work after three visits.

Thanks for the info. I might have to ahead and schedule a service visit next weekend. No fun getting in the car when it's 110F outside!

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Hi, guys. Finally making my first post -- to say I've been watching this thread closely and appreciate the info everyone's providing.

At the beginning of May, we bought a 2012 Overland, built in mid-March, and we seem to be having the same problem. A week or two ago, I used the remote start for the first time. I got involved in something else and actually let it run the full 15 minutes, until it shut off automatically. I noticed it didn't seem particularly cool when I got in, but I blamed it on the super-hot day.

I've tested the remote start a couple of times since, to the same results everyone else is reporting. Fan running full blast, seat cooling on high, but the compressor isn't coming on until I open the door.

Planning to keep a continued eye on the thread and will post my results when I finally take it to the dealer.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Just tried mine today 102 degrees, it ran for 10mins and when I opened the door it was blowing hot air but it turned cold after I took off.
Great. :/

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Just got off phone with chrysler. The girl did not want to listen, just wanted to close the ticket. Fed me the "this is normal behavior" line. I told her other GC's work fine, and my dealer even acknowledged there is a problem, but she just said oh well and closed the ticket. Un f'ing believable.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Hi I came upon this site while looking into the same problem with my 2012 Durango SXT with remote start. I am having same issues since its technically same vehicle. When I use my remote start my fan blows on low with no cooling effect to air at all, No light on the AC controls (digital) and no compressor kicking in until I insert key (since i dont have the push button start)

As soon as i put key in I can feel air getting cold. I am taking to dealership tomorrow with info from this thread...I will report back what their findings are.

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Good luck with the fix fot your Durango.

The TIPM replacement solved my problem Another members was fixed by replacing the Climate control unit (located at center dash).

Re: Remote Start Climate Control

Dealer kept mine for a couple of days. They talked with Chrysler agent -- who, in the end, told them this 'currently' is normal operation. This was after he had them try the EVIC setting both checked & unchecked, restore the configuration on the TIPM, and compare the functionality to another 2012 on the lot (which performed the same way mine does.)

Service manager was apologetic, saying agent said this is the way it's supposed to work, but that lots of owners aren't happy with the situation, so they're working on a software fix. Certainly hope so! Not real sure what's helpful about having hot air blowing around inside the GC and through the seat for 10 minutes before I get in.
