Oh, I should have called the post "ICE on the Ice?" !! oh well
I am also in Ohio. First meaningful frost of the year this morning and the city didn't salt anything. There were a couple of accidents I know about, but nothing serious. Curious to see how the winter progresses.The same thing happened to me both times it's been driven this week with the temps in the 30s here in Ohio. I don't recall such behavior last winter but maybe I'm simply forgetful.
Others have said that the trick is to warm it up while still plugged in. I don't have an L2 yet, so I haven't been able to try this yet.It was -18C / 0.5F this morning. I could have used some pre-conditioning for the Aspen. Pfft. The heated seat was just getting warm by the time I was at work.
Okay, thank you. That lines up with my experience today. I wish there was a better explanation for why stuff was happening in the van's user interface.So the ICE kicks in depending on the HVAC temp that you're requesting, I can kick on ICE on demand if its below 40 degrees and you switch fan to high, just rotate the dial all the way to the right. But also if you're on Auto at 75 degrees for example and its cold outside then it will also kick in ICE to help heat up the coolant.
