Heated Seats

I had a 12 mile journey this morning and as it was cold I switched my heated seat to the low position.  On the return journey I was aware that the seat wasn't being heated and then I notice the switch had reverted to the off position.  Is this something that normally happens when you power off?  I don't use the heated seats often so I am unaware of its operating intricacies.

I`ll wager that your Handbook knows Kevin.

Mine is still in the ‘on’position the next day when I get car out of garage in morning. The wife always has it on from the previous day but think she has it on the high setting

Nope .... all it says, when you have looked for 'seat heaters' and not 'heated seats' is below.

When the seat heater is on, the indica-

switch.
When not in use, put the switch in the
neutral position. The indicator will turn off.

I know someone who sat with heated seats on and air-conditioning on cold with engine off , and wondered why Battery died.

I advised them that maybe a bus would be more suitable for them in future 😄.

Of course I realize that this is not your scenario at all , and only popped in for a true story to amuse hopefully.😊

heated seats are on relays so will turn off with the ignition if the switches are momentary (one press for low, 2 for high) it should reset to off after a key cycle - unless there is a option in the climate control to change its state

if its a latching switch it will stay in what ever you left it on unless the thermostat has reset

Edit. Heated seats and wheel are controlled by the HVAC system

I often knock the heated seat switch with my phone as I drop it onto the shelf...maybe you did same?

I normally put a bunch of keys there.  I have checked the switch and it takes very little pressure to return it to the off position so I guess I inadvertently switched it off.
