Well I've done the SW3 mod on my 2017 Juro with the same does nothing result. And Yes I am doing it correctly.

I have noticed that pressing (or shortening to ground) SW3 DOES send a signal to the car, as it turns on the charging bay light which is odd.

I think the heating facility has simply been disabled as it poses a safety risk, maybe Dealers can enable/ disable functions of a key fob much like BMW others?

Good evening all!

I appreciate this topic has been covered extensively with 10 pages of replies, which I think is making me more confused.... I am in the UK with a 2016 PHEV 4h.
My key has three silver buttons on the front (lock,unlock,electric tailgate)
It also has 2 buttons on the sides, one of which is blank. The other has a clock symbol and the word “off” on it.

See photo...

Now from what I can make out, if I swap that button and micro switch, to the other side, when I double click it, it should start the heaters in the car.

Is this correct?

Many thanks for your help!

[quote="MrPastry"]I fitted the 4th switch today & soldered the link wire to TP6.
When pressing the 4th button twice quickly (as you would for the boot), the led flashed on the remote but the car (2015 model) did not respond at all.

Having read more from another site, I decided to connect the link wire to TP5.
Now when I pressed the 4th button twice quickly, the car responded with 3 short & fast indicator flashes.
I went back to the car after 15 minutes, put my ear to the drivers window & could hear the heater blower running.
When I opened the door, the blower stopped as expected. The cabin was cosy & warm. :D

Hey, Thanks. Was having trouble with getting this to work. TP5 worked for me, Jan 2015 GX4H
:D :D

Thanks everyone for this hack, works great.

However, I simply shifted the side button to the other side and modified the silver button bit to fit the other way around.
no cutting of the pcb track, or adding extra wires.

I found the tactile switch that look like the one in the keyfob. (if anyone with an older car want to add an extra)

You need to make a double click .. like for open the trunk door.

Once the double click is recognized, the car will make 3 blinker flash for acknowledge the request.

After the process start .. normally nothing can be hear .. at least if heating is requested, first the car need to warm up some fluid, and then it will use the blower for send warm air in the cabin .. this process can take several minutes based on the outside temperature.

As far as I know, not every PHEV has electric heating system.


Yup, I did try a double click. I also tried a triple click and quadruple click just to make sure. But the car does not respond at all. My car does have an electric heater, and I do use preheat through a schedule and through the app. Not sure what else to try.


Did anyone get this working on an '18 (USA/Canada)? Like others, I truly HATE the android app!

Brilliant hack!! Why have I not found this before? Been fighting with WiFi poor range and poor Android app for two years now. After service last week, I got an update installed requireing an Android app update too, "Remote Ctrl 1". And now things have gone from bad to worse.... One old phone can bind, one newer refuses. WiFi config is (randomly?) lost, have to re-enter password several times.

While waiting for parts to arrive, I made a temporary hack with a small switch from the scrap box and two thin wire solder to the SW4 pads. It was possible to close the shell with wires sticking out on the side. Some black sticky tape holds the wires and switch in place.

Those parts are on order:

Tried this today on my 4 days old PHEV 2019 and it is not working.
Shorting the missing button SW3 (the one on the side) let the remote send, but nothing happens :oops:

I tried shorten once and shorten two time and stay shorten.

Anybody who was able to do this on a 2019?

This is my remote inside:

Nope. It doesn’t work on a 2018 either.

Maybe we should summarize the findings on what switch or test point to use:

MY13: SW4 / TP6
MY14: SW4 / TP6
MY15: SW3 / TP5
MY16: SW3 / TP5
MY17: N/A
MY18: N/A
MY19: N/A

Please correct or add if anything is incorrect or missing.
