Remote & Heater

Tue Jan 22, 2019 6:45 pm

I really wish that my iMiev's remote could be used to set a timer for the heater. I park too far away from my office for to use the remote, so I can't pre-heat the car before driving home. If anyone has any ideas on how to make this work, I'd love to hear them!

Cheers,

Funny, I was thinking of that recently as I had simply wanted to pre-set the Remote timer to turn on the heater just like we can use the Remote for charging control. After experiencing the remote-control capabilities of the always-connected Tesla and its app, our little Remote is sooo last-decade. Have no idea how to hack into our unit and bypass it. Are you plugged in and charging while at work, or is the car just sitting there disconnected?

I suppose OVMS could theoretically send the signal on the CAN bus if someone figures it out.

People are using it on cars like the Leaf.

Yep, charging while at work. Lots of power for the heater, but no way to access it! I wish that I had a closer place to park.
