is blank until door is opened, is this normal?
When starting car with factory remote start, panel showing temp and blower power on 2012 Chrysler Town & Country
Yes, no need for the display when there's no one to see it. When the door is opened it assumes there is an observer.
what i thought was if you set the defrost or air to high when you shut car off, the next time it is remote started the same settings will be there but that is not the case until you open the door.
Oh, that is odd. In oher words the heater doesn't start working until you open the door? There must be a defalt setting it uses until the door is oened, i really don't know.
