So a few weeks ago I bought a 2012 Kia Forte5 and I am loving it. The dealer told me when I bought it that there was a way to turn on the rear defroster with a specific key button press sequence, but I can't find that sequence anywhere. To start the car you have to press the lock then the start button, but I can't find any info on turning on the rear derfroster.

So my question is does the remote truely do this or did the dealer mis-speak?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know about the 2012 I just read the ops manual and my 2011 hatchback does not operate the rear defrost .However if i leave the A/C or heat on that works just fine..The main thing is whatever you left on when you shut off the car thats what will come on when you remote start (ie) radio,A/C,heat,wipers etc. Hope this helps...I can't say the dealer mis-spoke .Like mine he just had no idea what he was selling...

I just got my 2012 Koup yesterday. It has the remote start option.

The Remote Start Reference Guide says to press the button with the key icon once again "after" starting the car.

I scanned the guide and attached it as a .pdf
