Default Question about remote start and A/C

Guys, I have a 2010 Big Horn with the factory remote start.Have you guys noticed when using the remote start the A/C compressor will kick in and start to cycle? mine will do this with just the fan on and the vent selector in any position. I set up an appt. with the dealer about this and I was just wondering if anyone else has this going on with there truck?
Thanks
Ron

Cant say it has ever bothered me. I got remote start specifically so I could fire it up and let the A/C run for a few before I climb in. When its been sitting in the sun all day and its 114 in the shade you dont want to know what it is in the truck.

That's the whole point in using the remote start, so when you get into your truck it's a comfortable temperature inside.

If your on the defrost or mix setting then yes, even with the A/C off it will kick on. The defrost and Mix setting use the A/C to dehumidify the air in order to clear your windshield faster and prevent condinsation build-up.

I understand that, it comes on with the selector on the vent setting or on the floor setting.

I'm just trying to see if anyone else's truck is doing the same thing.

Like I said before it can be in any position and the compressor kicks on
