2014 Heated Passenger seat turn on when remotely started or Auto Climate?

Am I missing something in settings? Is there anyway to have the passenger seat heat up during remote start just like the driver seat and steering wheel do when Climate Auto Setting is on.

The wife would love it instead of me having all the warmth when entering the vehicle.

No option like that in the '14.

Or prior to the MY14. Driver side only.

Dang. Technology! 😀

In the wife's vehicle, and my previous, there are push buttons or switches that when left on would be on when remote start was activated. Would be nice in the settings to have an option such as passenger heated seats to be included in Auto Climate.

I had the same question after we started having single digit mornings and I was getting ice cold stares from the passenger side. I sent off a question to Chrysler, no response yet. It would seem to be a simple thing to do, just activate a circuit, the same way the driver side is.

Re: 2014 Heated Passenger seat turn on when remotely started or Auto Climate?

the heated seats and wheel are controlled through LIN BUS system. yes. would be simple to "turn on" however this would require re-programming the Heat/Ac control unit, and the Touchscreen.

Requires a programming engineer, or someone to "hack" the factory programming..

so im gonna say Jeep is not willing to do this, for a handful or even 100's of people that may or may not want the passenger side seat on.

Solution.

Remote start the car, and let it run for 15 minutes before you get into it. The vehicle engine will be warm, and the interrior will be warm. Turn the seat on and wait the 45 seconds it takes to heat up once you get in.

I was also told in my old '11 GC and in our current '14 GC that the heated seats have always been "pressure activated" meaning regardless if the they turn on with auto-start - they won't start to warm up until you're actually sitting in the seat.

Then, apparently, our 11# dog is heavy enough to get the passenger seat heater ON.

Re: 2014 Heated Passenger seat turn on when remotely started or Auto Climate?

What I don't like about my '14 that my '08 would do is the ability to have the heated seats on WITHOUT the engine running. It was great on the ferry for 1.5 hrs....4 seats on and never a problem starting.
I hope someone like Lockpick makes changing the heated seat logic one of their product's features..
