    I noticed recently that the remote start on my JLUR (cold weather package) now turns on the rear defroster, I do not recall the rear defroster being activated with this feature. Could this have been some form of an update done to the software? I can see where this can be useful although mine is parked inside overnight.:jk:

    I have noticed the same thing.... just another button to push after I get in.

    Order of events in sub 40:
    1.) Remote Start... 2 clicks on remote.
    2.) Unlock doors... 1 click on remote.
    3.) Open door and get in... no clicks.
    4.) Start button... 1 click.
    5.) ESS button... 1 click.
    6.) Heated seat... 1 click.
    7.) Heated steering wheel... 1 click.
    8.) Rear defrost to turn off... 1 click.

    8 button clicks later, and Im ready to drive!

    I do believe that you can go into the UConnect and change the settings for some of this stuff. I haven't tried. This reminds me that I need to re-install my Smart Start Stop so I can be on the move in 7 clicks! :giggle:

    Yep lots of clicking and button pushing going-on, hard to believe that we use to insert a key in the door, open the door, insert the key again and turn it. My other car has an ignition key and I still enjoy turning it to start the car......

    There was another thread around that said if you don't have the 8.4 UConnect the options to turn those things off on startup were not there. I can confirm that with the 8.4 UConnect you can turn those things off.

    I found most... but not the rear defrost on. How did you get to that one?

    I just assumed it you set it to "off" it would turn everything off.. I like having it on so I haven't tried.

    I think you can set the seats/ steering wheel heat on or off below 40, with every start or remote only, but I don’t think there’s any choice on rear defroster. If it’s below 40 it just automatically turns on for one cycle. That’s about 10 minutes.

    Same here. No option to select or deselect if defroster comes on with the seat and wheel. It just does.

    Keep in mind rear defroster button/function is also for the side mirrors.

    I’m totally for people having different priorities and being able to tailor things to their individual needs via settings. But to be honest I do have a hard time understanding the issue with the Jeep automatically warming itself up on cold days when using remote start. For people who don’t want that, what is the purpose of using remote start in the first place? Just for warming up the engine? Not arguing against being able to disable those things. But I personally like everything turning on, so I’m asking because I'm genuinely curious and would like to understand other people’s scenarios. Thanks!

    Actually I think that there might be a cabin temperature sensor involved too. On mornings with remote start I have seats, wheel, rear defroster and front defroster on high ( until door opens, then front shuts off). Tonight once I got home I hit remote start and looked through the window, only wheel and seat. Cabin was warm, so maybe only defroster comes on automatically if it senses it’s needed.

    Because people like to write threads about things they dislike rather than going into the manual and investigating how to disable things. Best part? The OP’s first post states he parks inside overnight—so why worry about remote start at all unless you like carbon monoxide.
