Who chose the temp range for climate controls during remote start?

Because as I said in my OP, I am cold at 60 and below. 

Christmas is coming up, you could ask Santa for a sweatshirt.


one thing that might help you- I remember being discussed on here a lot for the K2's, just because the little yellow light is on next to the AC button does not mean its actually cooling the air. The compressor always turns on during remote start in order to dehumidify the air in the cabin in case your windows are foggy. Maybe your truck is working as designed between 50-59 degrees, but since the fan is blowing full speed when you get in, you assume the AC is on.

No assuming. From 50-59 it does not blow at all. 


It would be nice if there was an option to switch the ranges by 10* in either direction based on the climate of the area the owner lives in. For me, the ideal ranges would be 59* and below full heat, 60-69 nothing (not even last settings) and 70 and up full ac.

The main reason I remote start my truck almost every time I drive it, is if it starts I know there is nothing wrong.


Had a 14 "trade allowance", and a 16 "full buy back", so it is not a good feeling when you try the remote start, and nothing happens. Does give you fair warning that your day just got a little/lot worse.
