Used to be a good rule of thumb, but the JGC won't allow you to turn off the radio (Uconnect system), no on/off function.

Re: Auto climate control

Even back in the olden days when we used keys, when the key was turned to the start position most accessories were not in the circuit. I doubt that is different today.

I could be wrong

Re: Auto climate control

I'll go with whatever the manufacturer decides. Today's auto electrical systems are way above my paygrade.

Re: Auto climate control

With the climate control in auto, does the AC compressor stay on all the time? I like to have the top vent or a window open much of the time if the outside temp is below the set comfort temp. But I'm not crazy about air conditioning all of SoCal. Does it just turn off if not needed?

Re: Auto climate control

After the update, mine still doesn't stay in auto after starting the Jeep. Should I request a new hard drive?

No hard drive in the '14. I think they use flash memory.

I'm not sure the software they are updating has anything to do with the a/c.
Mine stayed in auto before the update (13.05.03) and nothing changed with the update.

Re: Auto climate control

Flash memory still has to have something to play it on doesn't it?

It is my understanding that the system is using all solid state technology.... No more "Hard Drives". Your concern about the auto not returning when the vehicle is restarted is more likely an update to the HVAC control module or the module itself has an issue with communications. To my knowledge this is still a separate module that the UConnect system talks to.

Now saying all of that since none of us here know for sure why the A/C does not turn back on I would suggest you ask your dealer to look at the problem not just to replace a certain part. The best tool this forum can be used for is if your dealer says "working as designed" then you can say no it isn't get me a few Jeeps off your lot and let's test that theory because many of us have verified that it should come back.

I can say working with dealers of all brands that coming in the door and asking for a specific part USUALLY doesn't get you off on the right foot. The requirement at Chrysler is that a customer complaint be duplicated or the concern is a known concern and they can go through their diag chart and verify the failure.

Gathering information in advance on the problem is a great idea but just don't walk in and say you know what the problem is... I know long winded response, but I train people on a regular basis and if it were your job and someone came in telling you how to do it, not knowing anything about you there is a 30% chance you will treat that customer with less respect. I know that isn't correct and service should always have good customer service but IMHO walking in and asking to have anything replaced is a big argument starter in Service.....

If it were me I would say "my A/C is in auto when I turn off my truck and when I turn it back on it is not in auto any more. I checked with some friends with the same vehicle and theirs comes back on"

Re: Auto climate control

Thanks Willx, I have been in a couple times on this issue. They tell me it is an update problem, and so far no problem. They have started a star case file on it, but no reply as of two weeks ago. Being in sales, I start and stop this thing about 12 times a day. Kind of a pain.

It would bug me too... I am the same in and out a lot. Curious.... If you set the temp but adjust the fan to mid range (so temp is still set to what you want). Check and see if it recalls that?

Would be interesting info
