You probably need to have your settings adjusted.  I hear you guys have goose down coats on when it get's below 75.  thumbs up

See I thought the fan was going even with cold air coming into the cabin; so the system waits to do anything until it reaches the required temp?

On my Acadia, using the remote start the fan will blow even before the vehicle is heated up, thus blowing cold air (I'm guessing it assumes there is no one in the vehicle).  Starting with the key however, the fan will start to blow only after heat is available.  Just to clarify, we leave the HVAC setting in AUTO.

Interesting; khansen states that the fan won't blow until warm air is available

Nice one, but no it has to be below 70 degrees.  oh btw; I haven't had the warm jacket out this year but we are supposed to get some rain here in the next day or two so who knows

I'm new to the Acadia, but I just dealt with this issue in a 3.5L '06 Impala over the weekend;  The LZ9 and LZE series of GM V6 motors can get air in the cooling system due to low coolant, which will cause there to be no heat at idle.  Everything else appears normal and normal heat is produced above idle. 

The fix is to remove the heater inflow line and pour fresh coolant into it or otherwise bleed and top off the system.  It fixes it immediately.  While I'm not sure if this issue affects the LYZ or LLT as installed in the Acadia...it may be worth a quick check.

That's real good info, OStateFlyer!  I'd bet checking the coolant level could solve a bunch of slow heat/no heat issues folks have talked about. thumbs up

My 08 Outlook didn't come with the remote factory but it does have the AP8 code so I took it in Tuesday of this week and had them reprogram the computer to make it work, well it does work but when my wife started it this morning when at work she got into it and had the exact same problem as some of you have. She started hers this morning and she said when she got in the heater wasn't working until she put the key in and turn the ingition on? So that tells me that the engine doesn't have to be warm for the blower to work because she had just started it from a couple hundred feet away and walked straight to it and got in and when she found the heater wasn't blowing she fiddled with the heater controls and it wouldn't work so as soon as she turned the key on it started blowing (cold air and all)Huh? Is this system so Smart that it will keep the fan off when in remote start and will not let it run until a desired temp and if so how does this affect the A/C? I am going to try the A/C after while when the engine is cooled down and mess with the button setting and will post my findings. Also I have seen certain kits that comes with a dummy key?? Do I have to have this dummy key and leave it in the ignition everytime we plan on remote starting the car or did the dealer just miss something in the programming?
Thanks and Merry Christmas!

I am noticing that last two weeks, when the temps weren't quite so low, I'd remote start and it would be the Mohave desert inside when I got in.  Now, lucky if it's Chicago in Nov.  Definitely that outside temps have an input.  A car sitting doesn't warm up as quickly as one being driven.  That's why it warms up more quickly once you get in.  I did find I'm having to remote start twice to get it toasty when it's been outside all day in the cold.  BRRRRRR. sunny

A second remote start definitley needed when its real cold outside.  I think it only runs for five minutes or so for each start.

It runs for 15 minutes, then you can remotely start it one more time for 15 minutes before you have to physically get in and start it.

Manual says 10 min each time.  Seems accurate by my watch.

No way my 08 runs for 15.

Mines ten minutes, then I can restart right before the first ten is over for another 10. I have the advanced remote and it counts down on the remote.

I wish I had the advanced remote.  They did away with it.  No longer an option.  I asked the dealer if I got the remote off of ebay would it work.  He said no.  The electronics in the 2011 was changed to eliminate it.  Too bad.

You all do realize don't you that a vehicle warms up much quicker when it is being driven then when it is just sitting and idling?

Mine is 10 minutes and as for the remote start it is an option on the Acadia SLT2 for 2011

FWD "Preferred Package Includes remote vehicle start, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, Bluetooth for phone and body-color body side moldings."

AWD "Remote vehicle start

Then for the 2011 Denali also located it

Located this information when I just did a "build" for the Acadia and the Denali on the GMC website so not sure why some are still saying they have been told this is not an option.

Yes but when it is below freezing I like having the Outlook at least warmer than 32 degrees and of course the seats all nice and toasty.

Yes your right.  But when it is very cold, you should not start the car and just start driving.  You need to let the juices warm a little before taking off.  If you are going to start your car and sit in it for a couple of minutes, why not do it from the comfort of your home?  Plus the seats are a little warmer and not as stiff, of course this is if you have heated seats.  At the same time, the remote start in the summer helps cool down the vehicle instead of getting into a car that is 120 degrees inside.

Agree or disagree George?

They are talking about the advanced remote with the LCD display on the remote. You can still get the standard remote start that does not have the LCD display on the remote.
