Hi I have 2013 Escape that came with the Remote Start. My 2010 Escape had an aftermarket remote start. I loved it. I live in Michigan, so in the winter I just left my heater & defrost settings on high and started the car from in the house. 15-20 mins later the snow and ice were melted off, the heated seats where nice and toasty, and I hopped in, turned windshield wipers on, and I was on my way. The new model turns right on - hit the lock button and the remote button twice, the car starts right up. I can NOT for the life of me figure out how to make the heat and defrost settings come on so that my car actually warms up inside while running with the remote start. Also the heated seats do not activate until the key fob is in the car and actually "activated." I find the new climate control system is hard to navigate all the way around. I have some sort of recall setting that automatically comes on when I get in the car which turns the AC on. Pretty annoying now that it is 18 degress here in Michigan this morning. Any tricks, tips, help in general would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!
