Seat heaters

Glad to have seat heaters for the first time, but ... they don't seem to be heating my seats. Is there something else I need to do besides what the manual says!?!

I don't really have any suggestions for you needanewcar.... Wish I could help... Mine just come on when I push the buttons... Are you sure that yours is equipped with that option? I think that the demo I drove initially (non-xle premium), wasn't equipped but my recollection is that it didn't have the buttons either...

Mine is non-premium and heated seats are working well.

What makes you say, "they aren't working"? One thing to note is that they do not get as warm/hot as a car with heated leather seats.

Waited a few minutes and didn't feel any heat at top setting (Hi). Maybe I have to wait longer.
I have the lower/non-premium trim available in Canada.

I've had a few cars with a heated seats (both leather and cloth), it usually takes about 2 minutes for them to get warm. If they don't work you better talk to your dealer, it's probably some kind of electrical problem.

Give it a few more minutes and let us know if it's still not working. I know some takes a while to soak through the material, even more so if you're wearing a lot of clothing to stay warm.

Sometimes even the heating coils have to go through a break in process which is just you using them more, so maybe give it some more time before going in to the dealer.

If it keeps up after a few weeks of being consistently used, then i'd say you have a real problem on your hands.

Thanks for all the replies.
Tried the seat heaters a few more times. Nothing.


I'll get them checked during my 8,000km maintenance check AND my third recall issue. Something to do with the parking break.
