Cabin Heat #
The Ampere EV cabin heat kit is meant to preserve factory heat controls in your vehicle. This means that the high voltage electric water heat and water pump, controlled by the vehicle control unit, has no way of communicating with the factory blower fan. For this reason, the water heater and water pump will have to be turned on via the GUI (graphical user interface) and the factory blower fan turned on. Because the water heater and pump can be turned on without the blower fan, the water heater and pump will be off by default each time the car turns on. This is to prevent needless power draw from the batteries.
If there is a problem with the cabin heat system, the general malfunction light will appear.
