Default Heated Seats not working with Remote Start

Its cold and now that I am using my remote start, I noticed that my heated seats and steering wheel is not coming on when I activate the remove start. Are they suppose to? The cooled seats always came on during the summer with the remove start and I assume the heated seats should as well. I have the option selected for comfort system on with remove start in the driver information center. Is there a problem or something else I need to do?

Thanks!

I have that too. The cooled seats worked in the summer, I wonder if its not cold enough for the heated seats and wheel to come on? I forget what the temperatures had to be for them to come on automatically with the remote start.

The heated seats are activated at 4.4 degrees C or lower. I have the same issue...but I believe it goes on the low mode instead of the high mode via remote.

Mine must be on when you shut the truck off then the drivers side seat and steering wheel are both on via remote start...

It has to be under 40*F for the heated seats and wheel to come on with remote start. Hasnt been cold enough here for them to come on yet

They came on today!


It was 37 when I got in the truck and the steering wheel and driverside seat was on. Passenger side is not on, but I think that is normal...

You have to select the comfort options from the menu. If you put the check next to it, it means you want the seats and wheel to come on when its cold out.

So when you guys first get in, does the seat feel nice and warm or cool? Mine seem cool until I put the key to the "on" position, then it starts to really cook. I am wondering if I should bring in to checked out. I won't if this is normal. Any feedback would be appreciated.
