Sorry Alex you are wrong, it definitely comes on automatically at ambient temps below 5 c.

I understand that the Cali. has these additional heaters for coolant and engine, but the SE also comes with a parking heater with remote control and timer as standard.
So, why would you want to warm up the cabin beforehand with the auxiliary coolant heater when it can be done (i'presume) with the parking heater?
Please note we do not yet have our Cali. so I have absolutely no experience of any of these.We are talking about the coolant heater being used to defrost the windscreen on cold mornings, heating the cab up is a by product. It uses the normal van heater to defrost screen. The parking heater will take much longer to defrost the screen & when switched off the van gets cold quickly till the coolant has warmed up sufficiently for the heater to work.from Calicasas: I would agree - my heater definitely came on after parking the vehicle after engine was off and after ignition off, so if this wasn't correct then I have a fault with this heater....

"The system heats up a water glycol mix and supplies warm air directly to the interior via the vehicle air outlets in the dashboard. This ensures that the driver’s cabin is automatically heated up and the entire vehicle interior can be used.
The system is integrated in the water (coolant) cycle of the vehicle's engine, ensuring that the engine is always started in an environmentally friendly way."
