Remote Start does not remember climate settings
 
When I use the remote start, the air conditioning and cooled seat settings are not retained. The temp settings are there, but the AC does not switch on until I get in the car and hit the button. The driver's side cooled seat reverts to the low setting by default. Kind of defeats the purpose in Arizona.

My 2012 did not have this issue. Everything else seems to recall fine (steering wheel, entertainment, etc. Anyone else having issues?

If you look around the forum you'll see this has been reported, probably more than any other problem.

Thanks - Did a search and didn't see it... Maybe didn't search outside of WK2 SRT.

With 14,700 miles, I got $48,250 on the trade, with the 2014 at $250 under invoice. They obviously tie the two together. They started at $47K. Think I did OK on the combined deal, especially considering the $4,000 tax savings with the trade. It wasn't worth it to risk the private party sale and deal with the headaches. Only option the 2012 did not have was the full panoramic roof. It did have the front sunroof.

Was that $250 under invoice or MSRP? Where is actual invoice on a loaded '14?

It was actually about $250 OVER invoice, not under... My bad. $66,420 with performance tires, tow package, panoramic roof, etc. I believe invoice was $66,250. The sales mgr said I was the cheapest he let out the door so far. I worked them pretty hard, as I bought my 2012 from them, and I was trading it back so they could sell it again. I think they may have even had a buyer lined up for my trade. MSRP with options was $70,065. Pics of the sticker and sales receipt attached in case you want to take them to your dealer - My trade allowance is also included on the receipt. I told them I would finance $20K, since I know they get a bit of a kickback on the financing from Chrysler, so that may have also helped a bit.

Good luck!

Wow. I thought invoice would be a little lower than that. So 66K is a great deal on the 14's I guess.

I've been hoping for an answer to the AC problem for awhile now (well since April)

My AC has a mind of it's own. With or without auto start it may or may not turn on at the setting I left it. It annoys the f$%&! out of me. Dealer service didn't know what I was talking about.

I wear a vest, 15 lbs of gear and when I get in my Jeep I want to feel a cold blizzard blowing.
