SBUBandit 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

Katclerico 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.

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.

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...

the heated seats after the vehicle is
started.

The heated seat indicator lights on
the button do not turn on during a
remote start.

The heated seat temperature
performance of an unoccupied seat
may be reduced. This is normal.
The heated seats will not turn on
during a remote start unless the
heated seat feature is enabled in
the vehicle personalization menu.
OK, but WHEN is it "cold" outside? 40 degrees? 30 degrees? I personally woud like to have the option to configure that.
