Re: 2014 GC heated Seats

I don't know what you guys are talking about, but my heated drivers seat gets too hot, and I have to bump it down to "Low" after only 10 minutes or so.

Interesting. The HIGH setting on all 4 seats feels more like LOW, and the LOW setting doesn't even feel like it's on at all.

My vehicle is in for service right now for the oil pan recall (smoke at start up of vehicle) and I asked the Service Techs to check the heated seats out as well.

I'll let you all know what I find out.

Re: 2014 GC heated Seats

I just heard back from the Service Manager. There is no adjustment to the temperature for the heated seats. They contacted STAR and this is the final confirmation.

Good to know. I was told that if I lived in a much colder climate, I would notice the temperature change of the heated seat. This makes sense, although, I have had other vehicles where the heat is much more noticeable.

Re: 2014 GC heated Seats

I think the seats are some how thermostatically controlled.

I think it might be dependent on outside temp or ratio of outside temp to inside temp.

Sometimes they put out a lot of heat and sometimes not.

But when it's really cold they seem toasty. But as you warm up, it seems to back off.

I think if you just ignore it, you will be comfortable and not end up with a sweaty butt and keep having to thermostatically control it manually.

I think the wheel does the same.

I think many of us are just used to it being full on (or full half on) or off.

It takes some getting used to. so many things to get used to

Re: 2014 GC heated Seats

Or maybe they work this way:


When the HI-level setting is selected, the heater will
provide a boosted heat level during the first four minutes
of operation.

Then, the heat output will drop to the normal HI-level. If the HI-level setting is selected, the system will automatically switch to LO-level after approximately 60 minutes of continuous operation. At that
time, the display will change from HI to LO, indicating the change. The LO-level setting will turn OFF automatically after approximately 45 minutes.


The Owner's Manual ... a terrible thing to waste.

Cool that fits. I figured out that it wasn't a constant level without reading a word. Much more exciting than memorizing the manual.

But I swear sometimes when I first turn it on, I don't feel any "boost", because it's not THAT cold out in the first place.

It might be more exciting for you. But when you post information that is wrong you are not helping anybody.
