• PLEASE! It is VERY important that this area is not used for the discussion of technical issues with your Stinger. This section is for posting about regional-specific things like Stinger clubs, events, local vendor or dealer recommendations, KiaStinger.com member sightings, etcetera...

Climate control default setting?

Each time I power up my missile, the climate control reverts to 22.5c, I would like it to hold at 21.5, looked at the manual and searched the forum, can't find any mention of this?

Seems odd, mine stays as set on both zones.

Have not been driving much because of COVID, but yes my climate control setting keep reverting to 22.5 when the car us restarted the next day, this is really odd because I presume this is all software controlled and the software should be the same in all the MY21's???

hmm.. that is odd, almost like something is resetting the computer.. mine also stays the same temp as previous shutdown.. has never reverted to a different temp or setting. Mine is a 2020 US model so pre facelift but i wouldn't think the climate control system changed much..

How are you starting the car?

KIA UVO app? - the app has temperature presets that are user selectable.
Remote starter Keyfob?
Push to start button on dash?

50/50 Push button/Key fob, we don't have UVO in Oz.

I'll pay attention to see if one works and the other doesn't.

manual says to keep it on 73f / 22c auto, something to insure it maintains proper moisture inside cabin...its somewhere in the manual.
if you're remote starting, then it will use whatever temperature you have set in the UVO app.

No UVO in Oz.

The issue with Auto is that the A/C always engages even when it's not necessary. Continues A/C use will lead to mold in the evaporator coils. Unless your switching off the AC and drawing outside air for a few minutes before shut off.

Ok, so I have been paying attention and confirmed now that if I use the Start Button in the car, the climate control temperature does not move from when the car was turned off, BUT if I use the Fob key to remote start the car, the Climate Control temperature changes to 23c !

So is this set-able, or turn off-able?

I hope so, but I have never read about that...

Since I use the UVO app in Canada, never been an issue since I can setamy options in there.

Hopefully someone knows the technique to set it how you want it.

I don't have it so i can't test, however i feel like i've seen videos on the remote start that if you set the temperature to a manual temp and fan setting before shutting the car off before a remote start it'll remember that rather than leaving it in auto which changes it to the default 23c?

This is my first car in 30+ years of driving with remote start. I'm still not keen on the idea of starting a car with no driver present. Isn't 23C a relatively comfortable temperature?

I thought I would try setting the Climate Control to my desired temperature and turn the car off with the key fob, didn't work.

I have found this where KIA is telling you that you should set the temperature to HERE

"For your convenience and to improve the effectiveness of the climate control, use the AUTO button and set the temperature to 23°C (73°F)."

Continuing my research.

What happens if you set it to 20C or 30C then press auto and shut the car off?

It's the same as c. 73F, which according to the manual is the setting that the AC works best at in Auto. I set the AC at 73F when it is low 60s or cooler outside: and 79F when it is warmer than that outside. When the temperature is in this mid/mild range, I often just turn the whole AC system OFF.
