Letting the motor idle is the slowest way to heat the cabin......driving is the quickest way to heat up the motor/cabin.
Page 28 has the steps to check the status of the function.When this function is deactivated, the air conditioner will function in the last set mode before exiting the car.
If I leave the heater on and turn off the car, when I turn the car back on (w/o remote start) the heater turns on. But if I remote start the car, the heater doesn’t turn on until I turn the key to “on”. Not sure if the heater isn’t turning on because the outside temp has to be at a certain temp.Does your crv remembers the last setting it was on if you just start it normally? Try not using the auto setting. We never use the auto.
Either that or your remote starter resetting things. Our 2008 and 2016 crv remembers the last settings when we remote start it. It is toasty warm went to get in at winter times.
Thank you for your research! Although I don’t have a Honda factory remote starter, this may be very helpfulI did a web search on "2013 honda remote start manual" which found a link to this manual:
Page 27 talks about what happens if automatic climate control is engage, which looks like:
below 45.5°F (7.5°C) - activates defroster and rear window heater, and mirror heaters if equipped.
45.5°F (7.5°C) or above - activates A/C at 72°F (22°C)
At the bottom of that page it says:
Page 28 has the steps to check the status of the function.
Page 29 has the steps for setting the activating the function.
So maybe deactivate it and then leave the Auto set to your desired temp?
No. When I turn the key to on, I still have to push the climate control button. Even if I left it on the last time I drove the car. The only thing this remote start is doing is turning the engine on. Once I turn the key to on, I still need to select the heater button and then It takes a good 3-4 mins to heat upSo.......after 5 minutes idling, you have heat when you turn the key to on, correct?
