Default Any way found to have heated seats come on with remote start?

I have tried leaving the heated seat on when I shut the car off hoping it would revert back to the on position when remote start is used. no dice. Anyone found a trick?

If I recall correctly, the climate control equipped ones do under a certain temp?

This guy built himself a control circuit for his G8. Looks a bit complicated if you're not an EE.

Negative. They don't even work with remote start. Only when the key is in.

Default Re: Any way found to have heated seats come on with remote start?

I would read the owner's manual to see if there's a provision to set the seat heater(s) ON when using the factory remote start. In extreme cold the plug-in overnight engine block heater helps with morning start-ups so having a nicely pre-warmed seat is a luxury. Safety is always in mind so most remote starts are set to run for a timed period before automatically shutting down the engine. Whether the factory remote has additional features should be coverd in the owner's manual. If not.......

As an aside, my aftermarket DEI remote has additional features to accomodate these functions; to turn on rear defrost, changing run times from 10-minutes (default) to 12, 15 or more minutes, and as a cool down engine run timer for those having a turbocharger and don't want to wait the 3-5 minutes of engine idling after a thoroughly heat soaked turbocharger came off the streets from blasting around. Those with turbochargers are familiar with oil coking the oil feed line going to their turbos right after blasting around and never allowing the engine to cool down with a few minutes of idling to allow oil circulation; turbos stay HOT from all that exhaust gas flowing through and spinning the rotor so oil not circulated cooks in place resulting in coke deposits to choke off oil flow, ending in blown turbos. The after run feature of some remote starts (like mine) allows the driver to lock the doors and run away to hang out wit da boys while the engine runs a few minutes to continue oil circulating through the turbo's oil feed to prevent coking. Its wishful thinking to have a turbo in my L300 just so I can use this feature. The additional feature of turning on the rear defroster could be used to switch on a seat heater or two.
