Default Remote Start and Heated Seats

In the controls setup menu for my car, I can choose for the heated steering wheel, seats, rear defrost to come on when it is remote started in cold weather. I can't find that menu for my 2013 Ram Laramie with the 8.4an. Does it exist? All I have been able to find is for the seats and steering wheel to come on each time the truck is started. This is NOT what I want. I only want those things coming on when remote started during cold weather.

I believe it turns on automatically by outside temperature.

From the manual..

Remote Start Comfort Systems If Equipped
When remote start is activated, the heated steering
wheel, and driver heated seat features will automatically
turn on in cold weather. In warm weather, the driver vented seat feature will automatically turn on when the
remote start is activated. These features will stay on
through the duration of remote start or until the ignition
switch is turned to the ON/RUN position.

Yes I don't know what temperature it is but the heated seats will automatically come on below a certain temp and cooled will come on above a certain temp

Mine haven't been coming on. I wonder what the temperature has to be? I have only had the truck a week tomorrow but I think it was in the upper 20's F a time or two

I've had my Ram back once already for the outside temp not reading right and the heated seats/steering wheel not coming. The temp works now but seats/wheel still don't come on with either controls. When I get time, it'll go back but I'm now starting to think Ram is subpar when it comes to electronics.

I'm not sure if its the same for the Ram as it for the Charger, but I have a 2011 Charger R/T Max when I remote start and if it is 40 degrees or below my seats and steering wheel come on. If there is condensation on the rear window or mirrors the defrost comes on when remote started.

There's a sync button I believe that's what it's used for.

The sync button is used to sync the drivers and passengers dual climate control temps.

This is one thing I wish the uConnect app had. Different buttons for Remote Start, one for "Max Heat" and one for "Max Air".
