Climate Use In Parking Lots

I would like to use the climate system to keep the car cool for a few minutes while I run into a store and my dog is in the car. I have tried both the app and the key fob and it did seem to work one time. The app always says the temp is 75 in the car. I have it set at 68 or less but if I let it go 10 min and get in the car is quite warm so I have no confidence in it...but love my Clarity in all other respects!! Any thoughts on keeping my dog cool?

Okay, I tried a couple different experiments and I think I have a solution for you.

Leave the car running with climate set to the temperature you want for the dog. Apply parking brake. Exit car and use the physical key hidden in your remote to lock the door. The car will stay "ready" with climate running until you return. The advantage to this method is that if for an unforeseen reason you are unable to return to the car before the battery is depleted, the ICE will engage and keep the climate safe for the dog. You will need to use the physical key again to unlock the car. It did not respond to my remote after using the key.

Hope this helps.
