Heated Seats

Post by venom_99 » Fri Jan 14, 2005 1:28 pm

Question: Are the heating elements in the seats (for those with Limiteds) supposed to automatically turn off after 5 or so minutes? No matter whether I turn the seat heaters on high (two dots) or low (1 dot), it alwsays turns off after a few minutes. The last car I had with heated leather seats always stayed on, and this is just plain annoying.

Heated seats are temperature controlled to cut out at a certain temp. Exact operation and temperature varies by manufacturer.

Seated Heat Timing

We did a test on the way home from the cottage today...the seats turn off after approximately 10 minutes. I find that after about that time the seat gets too hot (at least on the high setting). To me that's it is enough time to get you warm.
