I have not tried the remote start yet. But....every time I get in the Jeep and turn it on the seats and steering wheel heat come on automatically. I turn them off when I exit the vehicle, but every time I get in they come on. I have searched the owners book but cannot find out if this is an error or if it is supposed to do this. I hate to leave it with the dealer if it is supposed to do this, but was concerned it was malfunctioning.
