2015 VW Golf (MK7) heated seats triggering in summer weather

0 votes
I have an EVO-ALL with EVO-START2 installed on my 2015 GOLF. The system worked well over the winter by turning on the heated seats and rear defrost but now that it is summer, it is still turning on the seats / defrost in weather above -5C.

I'm running firmware version 61.03 per another ticket on this forum suggested. Am I missing a setting or is there a different firmware I should be running?

When you remote start, what is the interior temperature showing in your evostart2 app ?

I don't see an interior temperature in the evostart2 app, the icon looks like it is grayed out.
The EVOALL does not have a temperature sensor so it cannot detect temperature. EVOONE contains an internal temperature and have option to not activate AUX when above 5C.
Bummer. Can it not pull the car temp from the can bus? Is that not what Fortin advertises on their website?
No it is not read via can bus, the evo-one has a built in thermistor that allows it to read cabin temperature. The evo-all does not have this.
Shit. Thanks guys.

Is there a way to add a thermistor or probe to the EVO-ALL?
Unfortunately not.
