I don't believe you can precondition remotely. You can set the Climate running but that does not precondition the battery. According to my remote, that can only be done within the car. I usually set it the night before I expect to leave.

Interestingly, when you do set preconditioning in the car, it will engage the Climate 30 minutes before your departure time.

Yes. I think my previous post was wrong. I was misled, and still puzzled, by the remote saying "Enable departure schedule the vehicle to use this feature".

But this morning I set departure time on the remote, not in the car, and I did not set Climate. When I went out to Jag, climate was working so I assume the battery was preconditioning as well.

Does setting a departure time on the app precondition the battery?
Yes it does, as long as the car is plugged into a L2 or L3. A L1 does not provide enough current to allow preconditioning, but climate functions fine plugged in or not. A JLR engineer plainer it all either o here or a FB plate last winter.

BTW the L1 behaviour is very common for every EV I have had, L1 means no battery preconditioning.

thanks for making the distinction between preconditioning and starting the claimant—I thought the two were the same. In any case, any way to revive the car remotely when it goes into energy saver mode?
