I have a 2020 Acadia Denali and when I push remote start my heated seats don't turn on. It looks like they are turned on when I go to the screen.

I think it depends on what the ambient temperature is. Not sure of the specs, but the heated seats won't turn on unless the Acadia is below a certain temperature. In a warm or heated parking area they may not turn on when remote started.

Or possibly, some sensor is not working correctly or disabled.

Perhaps have it checked over by the dealer if still under warranty.

If the 2020 functions like my 2019 heated seats won't come on unless there's a passenger (or heavy weight) in the seat.

Hmm. . I'll have to check mine out. I could swear that both front seats get heated upon remote start. If the ambient temperature is cold enough. Is there a setting for that?

Well it is definitely cold enough here in upper Michigan. I may just have call dealership and have them look at it.

Just an FYI but I don't use remote start (or very, very seldom) so that may well work differently.

This is similar to my 21. The temps have to be cold enough to have the driver seat come on with the remote start. Mine was working fine but the last few days here in long Island have been not that cold so it hasn't done that.

It seems like there is quite a bit if interest by folks to actually want to sit on a "hot seat". LOL
