Remote start doesn't include A/C?

I was talking with a dealership guy and he said that when you use the remote start on the 2014 Grand Cherokee, it does not turn on the A/C (until you grab the door handle).

I tried experimenting with this on my 2014 but want to get some second opinions on this. Has anyone heard of this or know for a fact if its true?

It works, but there's a design flaw. Check out this thread for the huge topic discussion:

Re: Remote start doesn't include A/C?

I remember you saying they would have it fixed around this time, but didn't know they had a TSB out already. Guess I'm scheduling an appointment for this and the raise message.

The outdoor temp sensor is still a little off and that will also be fixed in the near future but the issues where it never worked on remote start have been corrected.

Thanks! Mine was built on July 30, so it applies to it.
