Auto start works, but no heat/defrost/heated seat

Recommended Posts

I own a 2017 Titanium AWD with V6 engine.

 

Yesterday it was 32 degrees in the morning so I used auto start and let car run for around 6-7 mins. I got inside and noticed there was no heat/defrost blowing and no heated seat or steering wheel. Same thing happened this morning.

 

This worked last winter, but over the summer I hit a deer and the vehicle went into the body shop and I also changed a battery not soon after. I am thinking one of these could have contributed to the heat/defrost not working with auto start now.

 

Any suggestions?

Just went out to car to check.  Yes, it's set to AUTO under the auto start options.

In my experience with this issue, the interior temperature is what triggers the auto setting to turn on. For example: Car parked outside @ 32 degrees:

Sun through the windows, or parked in garage, interior temps higher than outside temps, will not set added features on.
