Have to have the climate control set to "auto". Also depends on out side temp, ran across a threat that really went into the weeds on this. Basically, below 32f (think that's the temp) when you activate remote start heated seats will turn on. Between 32f and 80f neither heated or cooled seats will turn, but heat or a/c will. Above that 80f temp, a/c seats will kick on. But you have to have the climate control set to "AUTO" for this to work. Or it will just turn on the climate control to what you currently have it set without activating heated/cooled seats.

Now, I know I may be wrong on temp. range because I can't recall the actual temps 100%, but will say I am 90% sure thats it. But I know for certain that's how it works. Hope that helps

This bugs me too. I cant tell if the climate control is on when I get in just because none of it is lit up before I put the key in. The weather around here has been in the 55-70 range up until today, so it was difficult to tell if the a/c was on for the few minutes I had the remote start going. This morning it seemed like the heated seat was on somewhat when I got it (the outside temp was 30).

I guess there's nothing you can do besides leave the a/c control on auto (which is what mine is always on) and hope for the best? Do any of your controls light up before you put the key in? I guess only time will tell (like in the hot summers or days like this)

Thanks

I have the same problem. I can't get it to warm up even when it's in the mid 20's... Half the time it's the A/C thAts on ...

36 degrees this morning and I ran the remote start for about 8 minutes....and still cold in the truck. There's got to be a way to set this climate control, but I cant find it in the manual. I dont know why a factory remote start would only warm up the engine (which is nice, dont get me wrong), but it sure would be nice to warm up the inside of the truck!

Like people have said earlier, climate controls on auto will turn on the heated seats if temp is below 40. Mine works, but I remote start it 15 minutes before I'm ready to leave. The truck might be cold inside but the seat is warm. My truck probably takes 30-45 minutes of idling from being off overnight to actually put out warm air, but then again, it's -10 here overnight.

Thinking of buying an 11 and was just wondering how long does the remote start run the truck.....My POS Chevy will run my current truck for two ten minute cycles then they key must be inserted in the ignition. After two runs its done.

Thanks

I thought it was just the seats that cooled/heated at a certain temp range. I was unaware it was the whole climate control system as well. I dont know why 32 degrees is the cut off point because down here in the south, anything less than 50 qualifies as cold enough in my book
