Rear Screen Heater: How to prevent the automatic switch on?

Post by Koala » Mon Feb 15, 2021 9:44 pm

In these cold days it seems that the rear screen heater always switches on itself, when the A/C system is on. Most of the time I would not need it, because the rear screen is clear. Is there a setting somewhere, to prevent the rear screen heater from switching on automatically?
Thanks for any hint!

Interesting point as those of us with the clearsight mirror get little real benefit from the rear demister but doesn't it also trigger the demisters in the wing mirrors?

Yes there is a setting on the climate screen for setting the rear and front window (cold winter pack) to Automatic or off. You will find it on the small climate screen.

For the pivi Pro users the climate screen doesn’t help here.
At Pivi pro go to:
Settings
Apps (seriously Jaguar, who had this brilliant idea to put this to Apps instead of vehicle/ comfort or vehicle/Drivers Assistance at least)
Climate -> Auto-H
EV320SE MY2021
German spec.
Eiger grey, black pack, drivers assistance pack, WiFi hotspot
Software 2.0.8a P3AX

Yes I thought that was odd as well. I was looking for the regen setting the other day and it took me a good 110 minutes to find it. I looked under the vehicle settings, the EV menu, Eco menu, everywhere else before looking under apps.

Yes! This is it what I have been looking for! Thanks a lot Maxwell_400!
Unfortunately the Jaguar owners manuals are close to useless, when looking for such a „hidden setting“.

From the other answers for MY21 we learn, that Jaguar even has found more secret places to hide this setting ... 8-)

At least we have a button for the heated front screen on my my wife's car you need to launch an app to bring the screen control up. None of the physical buttons is able to carry out this simple task.

Maybe Jaguar should implement a search function as you find on PCs or like google to find various settings. If you search 'window' all settings related to 'window' should pop up.

The iGUIDE has a search function, but typing in windows brings up nothing re the rear heated screen.

The iGuide isn't even accurate for MY21, it discusses a range of things which aren't actually possible on a MY21 car.
