Auto Start pleasant surprise

The temp finally got down to winter chill. I auto started and got in the truck to find that drivers heated seat, heated steering wheel, and temp was on and it was toasty when I got in . this has never happened before.

Is there a temp sensor that turns these features on? I wonder when summer rolls around if it will do just the opposite with vented seats and AC...

Yes according to manual the Jeep has temperature gauge that will heat or cool down your Jeep based off outside temp so you don't have to manual set heat or AC every time you get in and out of car. Gotta love it!

It's a great feature. It's the "Remote Start Comfort Feature," which you can turn on and off in the EVIC.

The heated options kick on at 39 degrees, not sure about the cooling options.

Re: Auto Start pleasant surprise

That is one sweet feature. I would use that to my fullest advantage, all of the time.
