Direct start of the parking heater

Post by Rebranded »

Hello and nice to meet you!

I'm having issues using the timer or the direct start option for the parking heater.
I will add a video link to exemplify it:


The parking heater works, as it heats up the car when in pure mode. I can hear it running and see the smoke.

Also the remote start doesn;t work.

No. It's the same with negative temperatures also. This is just unlocking the car and trying to Directstart

I have done those, the issue is that preconditioning doesn;t start. As i understood there should be Directstart ON or OFF.
And I'm missing those.Tried to use the timer and same thing. It doesn;t start and there is no error message.
