2011 VW Jetta S - EVO-VWT3 Temperature options?

0 votes
  1. Will the EVO-VWT3 or the EVO-ONE activate electric defroster based on temperature in a 2011 VW Jetta S standard key? If not, do you offer a product that does? (defrost is the entire reason I'm installing a remote starter).
  2. Does the 2011 VW Jetta S standard key support rear defrost control through the vehicle's CAN-Bus?

No defrost control through CAN-BUS on that vehicle.

The only option would be to go with an EVO-ONE which has an analog AUX output that can be set to automatically activate when temperatures are below 5C.   With the EVO-ONE, the VW3 harness and TB-VW are sold separately.

Thanks. Is output signal though the A13(yellow/black)?, and is there an input connection I would need to make for the thermocouple, or is that already fed in?

Regarding the T harness- it appears to be an optional piece of equipment. Other than reducing the number of cuts/splices/solder connections, is there any disadvantage or loss of function if I go with the hardwire install?
