Can someone direct me on how to setup my remote start to have the heated seats on medium, heated steering whee on and set the temp inside the car?
Need to set this up before I get back from Florida but could test it out on the temp inside for florida..

You can go into the message center by pressing the lower right button on the steering wheel - looks like two little gears. Scroll to the advanced settings and you will find remote start. You can set the climate control to automatic or last setting. You can set the seats and steering wheel to automatic or off. Automatic will turn them on when the temperature is below around 40 degrees if I recall. The seats will be on high. You cannot choose medium.
By the way, there is a service bulletin out on the seats with remote start.
Some 2017 continental vehicles built on or before 14-feb-2017 may exhibit heated seats that are inoperative during a remote start event. reprogram the drivers seat module (dsm) using ids software 106.01 or higher.
Edit: I just realized that you have a 2018. Your steering wheel buttons may be different if you have HUD. I am pretty sure the remote start/heated seat process is similar, however.
