Has anyone looked for the CAN messages to engage pre-heat/defrost/cool the car while plugged in?
That remote is big and has very low range.
I am installing a typical "remote car starter" with ~5000ft range from its fobs as well as cellular remote control and tracking. These units have several aux outputs that can be configured in virtually unlimited ways. If we have the functioning messages, I could use these outputs to trigger a can bus interface (Like maybe Arduino) to send the proper command.
In normal mode, the remote car starter will put the car into "ready" and can turn on heat or AC as long as the car isn't plugged into a charger. This of course has a negative effect on range, and will rarely be used. But I "can" so what the hell eh?!
Rear defrost is easy enough as it is just a trigger. But looks like all the rest is over CAN.
