Should also work the same way if you leave the Defrost on so have the Dealer check that along with the A/C and Auto settings.

I noticed on mine if I remote start the ac compressor does kick in but the fan inside the car barely blows or doesn't blow at all. As soon as I get in the car. It starts blowing on auto setting, even before I hit the start button. Figured that was just the way it worked. Do others cars work differently?

Don't you think if somebody had a solution they would have posted it in the existing thread(s)? :rolleyes:

My AC has that stinch of wetness when it comes on with my 14 Summit, trying to find the cabin filter or drain plug to find out what's going on.

In the mean time spray some Lysol in the air intake with the A/C on high and recirculate. A Ford dealer did that for me once on a new Explorer. Cleaned the stench right up and it never came back.

Hehehe ... just came home. Same observations. Used remote start and got into car ... guess what? Auto is disabled. Had to push Auto get the AC to move the air. Sux ... I hope this is just a bug but I'm subscribing to this thread, maybe somebody will find solution.

Yeah... I'm definitely going when they open on Saturday morning....driving me nuts....would really suck if this was middle of winter.
I think it's worse during the summer, at least during the winter the engine will be warm and as soon as the ac starts working you have hot air blowing! Now it does't really make any difference during the summer!

My ac sucks. My 08 Nissan Altima blew way colder than this.

This is a problem on my 2012. There may have been a TSB on it, but I don't know. Heat works fine on remote start, but in the summer it just blew hot air until I hit the start button

This has been an issue with all WK2s. I tried bringing my 2013 in for the same complaint, techs said it couldn't be replicated and no issue found. I hope Jeep gets it together with this, because it was mildly infuriating for me over the summer.

Dealer has my GC2014 in for paint defect and molding issues. I asked them to look at the remote AC issue as well. Ill report back next week. I wonder if I bought too early.
