Re: 2012 JKU Remote Start Auto temp control A/C issue
I cant say for certain but my guess would be if it was done on purpose it was two fold:
1. in the winter it helps to defrost windows quicker - assuming your dial is on defrost or a combo with defrost i.e. feet and windshield.
2. In the summer, you cant cool your car down with out the a/c on and the auto start enabling a/c will allow you to accomplish this with the remote start option.
