Remote climate control in MyT app


Recommended Posts

Hello to you Yaris drivers.

I have just purchased a new (used) Yaris Excel Hybrid 21-registration. I’m very pleased with it but before purchase, I was told it would be possible to set the climate control from my phone in advance before entering the car but after purchase and setting up the car in the application, it appears that it’s not a feature on my model but I have the latest model? Please can someone advise?

op has a 21 plate, i don't believe it wasn't an option until MY22 or 21.5

the dynamic has been dropped, and the lunch edition was replaced with the GR sport

I knew i'd read it somewhere: 'From summer 2021, MyT functions extended to include remote operation of the car’s hazard 
lights, the climate control and door locking and unlocking. The functionality is standard on 
Dynamic and Excel grade models.'

Hi its on our 2021 Yaris Cross My T App, you can remotely start the car for 10/15/20 mins ...The TEMP will be what it was set to when you last set it in the car.

It does work, I tried it one very frosty morning in January for 10 mins and it did clear all the ice from the screen.

The services are connected but there’s no climate control function. I was told that it is possible to do it before I bought it. The car was registered in May 2021.6ACDAD5C-2567-4DA4-BDA3-784DDC63723D.thumb.jpeg.ad6fbb98e56b4b7f4e96c0a4ae13011b.jpeg

I tried it today before I went out, it definitely turned on but I opened the car before 10 minutes was up. Could be good to use in winter

Would imagine  - if you have it, it would only be applicable on keyless start cars?

IMHO, since you just got the car, go to the dealer, tell them the saleperson said it had this ability (Or find the saleperson and ask them how to get the feature they told you about to work) and make it their problem.

The fact that they sold the car to you with this as a stated feature makes it up to them to sort it out.

It might be yours does have it but they forgot to activate it or pair your car to your account properly.

Either they get it to work or you have some leverage for a free service or something for being falsely adverted a feature. It's not your fault the saleperson doesn't know their own product line!

Nothing I’m aware of on our 22 plate Design.

It's not a feature on the yaris, it would require the remote start function

It’s seems strange how some and others don’t have the feature considering it’s the latest model..

I think I’ll try that. Thanks to everyone for your time and support!

The remote Climate function was introduced with MY21.5 cars for which order books opened in July 21 the feature is only available on models with Dual zone climate which at the time was Dynamic, Excel & launch Edition.

The feature is dependent on the DCM ( Data control module ) model installed and cannot be retro fitted

Would they fit an updated DCM that supports it as part of the DCM recall...?

No the recall is a software update to correct a potential fault it does not upgrade the systems abilities

I have the function on my 21 plate dynamic, registered January 2022

That's very strange, you would think it would be available on my 21 excel.

I have once or twice when it was cold. It just turns it on to the setting you left it on. Eerie walking up to your car and it's engine is running but it's all locked up. My Yaris I got December 2021.

Is it allowed in UK to leave ICE on when car is parked ? In Italy is forbidden ( even if you are inside the car ) and you can be fined. 

Moreover if you allow the car to turn on ICE when it's parked in a closed area ( eg. private or public garage ) the risk of be poisoned by CO is very high.  I don't think that the car is so smart to understand if it's parked in an open or a closed area or it has a CO sensor to stop ICE and disable remote climate function in case it could be dangerous.

I haven’t experimented with mine yet but I can tell you my 22 lexus did remotely start and warm up or cool down to a small range of preset temperatures.   The same applied - it was up to the owner to ensure it was not in an enclosed garage or other space and it was off the public road as it is also illegal here.  I believe it’s called “quitting” to leave an engine running on a public road.

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
