Remote start no heat

0 votes
Hi,

I just bought an evo-all with fort 3 harness for my 2017 F-150 2.7leb. Remote start works well and I enabled climate control and rear defrost with Forscan, but climate control center is dark and off until I insert the key. Climate control is manual. Tried all settings no luck. What am I missing?

The climate controls are set to auto. Meaning the vehicle computer controls when it will push hot air.

If the engine is cold, it will let the engine warm up first before pushing hot air.

 

If you do not like this, Using your forscan, under remote start, then under clicmate controls changed to last setting inside the BCM. This will make it so it will turn on whatever it was left at when you got out of the vehicle.

 

Also the dash not being lit during remote start is normal.

Thank you and 100% correct. All my factory options are functional. Lighting stays off until key inserted but heating/cooling is on. Rear defroster also activates below a certain temp if enabled with Forscan
