OK, but WHEN is it "cold" outside? 40 degrees? 30 degrees? I personally woud like to have the option to configure that.

Re: Remote Start and temp

Kind of guessing here but I believe mine kicks on the rear defrost and mirrors at about 2 degrees celsius, so around freezing. I don't do the pre-heated seat thing but I imaging it uses the same threshold.

Man, I hope not, my butt is cold way above freezing point. Besides, we only get a couple of weeks a year below freezing. Now, about those 5 months over 90 F...

Re: Remote Start and temp

From service manual:

"Some vehicles allow the customer to configure their heated and/or ventilated seats to come on after a remote start is commanded. The heated seats will only come on if the outside air temperature is below 50F as measured by the outside air temperature sensor."

You answered my exact question, why does my rear defrost stay on after i start the ignition when using auto start... I guess the rear defrost is linked to the heated mirrors which like the heated seats, will kick on when the outside temp is approx 30 degrees. Does that sound right?

Not sure of your year, make and model.
In my 2014 Nox LTZ, the heated mirrors go on with the rear defroster.
That's why you cannot find the switch to turn the heated mirrors on.

Rear defroster switch is on the center stack, you can turn it off anytime.
Heated mirrors are on a timer to turn off.

I have a 2019 Terrain SLT and that seems to be the case. The car is fairly new to me, still learning all the features and after reading this thread, i'm wondering if i should be using the "Auto" setting on the climate control. I have the remote start, and i use it daily, and not that i'm thinking, the only thing warm when i get in is the seat... meaning i can tell the heat has not been running... the car isn't horribly cold and i'm typically in a rush so its taken me a few weeks to notice. What exactly do i have to do to have a warm car when i get in Please help! I've read the manual and i just dont understand.

I've noticed that mine, when remote started under 50 degrees, will turn on the heated seats, but they must turn on to low. I just know they are nowhere near as hot as if I turn them on with the switch, but I can feel them. I do find it odd that the rear defroster stays on after remote starting, even after the key is inserted. I have to turn that off each time with the button. I park in a garage, so no reason to drive around with that on
