Heated Wheel and Seat Upon Remote Start
 
I have noticed that when I use the remote start the heat for the seats and steering wheel also turn on. However, it seems to be hit and miss. Sometimes they are on when i get in, other times they are off. Is the system dependant on the temperature or is it malfunctioning? I have tried resetting it in the evic.

it depends on the temp from what others have posted

It's outside temp related. I think the threshold is 36 degrees or lower.

Living in Edmonton, Canada, that is a great feature. When I park in the garage, it starts with nothing on. When I use the remote at the office or anywhere it is outside, the heat blasts, the wheel heats up as my seat. The only thing I wish is that all the other seat warmers would activate. We hade -30 awhile ago and the seats were just like concrete...ha.

Yes it is temp related. I only wish that the front defroster went on at the same time. It is a minor thing but I do understand why it cant be that way too.

All good and yes mine does the same thing.

The front defroster does go on. When u open the door it stops, till u press the button to start.

Correct. If you open the door fast enough, you can hear the fans slow down for the front defrost.

It was 39 degrees out when I tried the remote start, when I got in the seat and wheel heaters were on.

I thought it was below 40 degrees for the heaters to come on and above 80 for the cooling fans.
