Re: Heated seats question

I have a 2014 Summit. The heated seats and steering wheel always seemed weak. Even the cooling ventilated feature does not work that well. These features work better in our Infiniti SUV.

Re: Heated seats question

I have the same issue on my '15 HA. the front and rear heated seats are hardly noticeable. i'm taking it in on Thursday to have it checked out. Has anyone had the dealer resolve the issue?

Re: Heated seats question

I have the same issue on My 2015 HA, it seems if you leave them on for a long period of time the get warm, but not fast enough. My 2014 Cherokee heated seats got nice and toasty very fast. I am going in on the 7th and will have them take a look.

I have to wonder if they are really turning on during a remote start.

When I get into the Jeep and turn it on manually, the seats heat up pretty quickly - like in less than a minute.

When I perform a remote start, I can let it sit for a couple minutes, but when I get in, the seat is cold. Once I press the start button, the seat gets warm very quickly.

The odd thing is, when I open the door to get in, the system clearly indicates the seat heater is not only on, but on high.

However, it doesn't seem like it actually activates until I've pressed the start button.

If that's the case, it defeats the purpose of having a setting to turn on during remote starts. The whole purpose of remote starting is to have the vehicle interior be warm (or cool, as needed) and comfortable. Modern engines don't need to be idled like old carbureted ones used to.

If the climate controls wait until I get in and hit the start button, then the vehicle is just wasting gas during a remote start.

Re: Heated seats question

Mine do not seem to turn on with remote start as they still feel cold when i get in. Its either hitting the start button or the weight of somebody in the seat that actually turns them on.

Re: Heated seats question

I think you have to actually be sitting on the seat before it'll heat.

Heated seats question

I'm in South Florida so not much chance to use mine but the last few days have been in the high 60's so it's been jeans and sweater weather. I got in the jeep around 5am and 68* and turned on my heat and seat heaters full blast today and was surprised at the temp of my seat. The coverage is very poor, ass cheeks and very lower back only, but where it is it got too hot within ten minutes. Assuming mine is ok I'd say yours is not.
I could see them erring on the side of caution after my wj's all burnt their element up, but I'd say this one gets equally hot. Get it replaced, there's no test besides your ass, dealer.

Re: Heated seats question

I did go to the dealer yesterday for a cilijet application, and asked them to check the seats. The tech does believe that they are not heating as they should, unfortunately I needed the car back in the afternoon so I will schedule another time to go in.

The Cilijet looks awesome we will see how long it lasts?

I feel the same way. It has finally been "AZ Cold" and I have tried to use them and they are very low heat, even on high. I rented an Explorer for business and you could have toasted marshmellows on those things. That's what I wish we had!

Especially when you have a high and a low setting. I've never even tried the low setting. I bet it's the same as off.

Re: Heated seats question

Just got back from Jeep dealer. They confirmed my seats are not getting warm like they should. They ordered new parts which will be in next week. Not sure what they are replacing, but I hope it fixes the problem.

Heated seats question

Just bought my 2015 HA a couple of weeks ago and I have to agree. I can feel the heat in the steering wheel but I can barely feel it in the seats. It also timed out the other day. The lights were still on/selected but it automatically shut down. The wheel was noticeably cooler.
