Heated seats poll

Just returned from the Jeep dealer for various service including the lack of heat from all the heated seats. They only ever got luke warm at best but it's not the TSB. TSB is up to date so they replaced the module but no luck. They want to replace all the elements. Not sure how I feel about that since it's a big job.

Would you have them do it?

Re: Heated seats poll

If you use them have them fixed. But, I would first ask your service manager to contact Jeep to see if there are any tests that can be done first. It sounds like the "tech" is really just a parts changer. Odds are the part they changed was fine.


If they didn't disconnect the battery when they worked on it, I would do that for about 15 minutes. The heated seats don't have a switch (poor design) but work through uConnect. It could be a computer issue. Sometimes a disconnect lets the computers reboot.

Re: Heated seats poll

I'm trying to figure out how you can even tell they are working right since its summer time? In the summer when it's hot out they feel hot regardless if the heated seats are in or not. I have a 2015 High Altitude that suffered from that common weak heated seat issue. The dealer did a reflashed and it 100% fixed the problem.

Re: Heated seats poll

Yep ...they are anemic!

Where's the poll?

I'm scared to let them reflash....I get more and more gremlins every time......There's the door locking....temp changes on it's own after some restarts.....radio station changes after some restarts......phantom power seat memories....nav reverts to Washington state occasionally........auto high beams disables itself every once in a while.....nav likes to have me 'sneak up' from the opposite direction to some destinations

Third head unit and numerous battery disconnects......maybe leave it disco'd for a week?

Re: Heated seats poll

I'd let them do whatever they want. Mine work so well I have to turn it down after a short time, so I know they can put out some heat.

Re: Heated seats poll

Why not let them do ONE seat first. Does it include the leather itself? If so doing them all at once might be a good idea so that they all match.

Did they ever work?

That's how mine used to work...until a updated flash. But....they have checked them and they are working 'properly'.

Re: Heated seats poll

There is a service bulletin for 14-15 front heated seat improvements, perform a HSM update and replace the elements your dealers should be about to find it.

Re: Heated seats poll

He stated mine (TSB) was up to date but now that I think of it, not sure about that.
