Heated Steering Wheel Inop!!

So this afternoon I selected heat for drivers seat & wheel, noticed shortly the wheel was not getting warm? Worked this morning. Anyway, I tried 6 or 7 times coming home but no dice, press the screen "button" and it lights up (activated) but goes out/off after a couple seconds. Any thoughts before seeing dealer? Thanks, Dave

Re: Heated Steering Wheel Inop!!

I think there is a temperature cutoff for some of those comfort features: i.e. you cannot turn on the steering wheel and driver seat heat in warm weather. Maybe you came across the now legendary electrical glitches or thoughtless programming where you can manually heat up the seats but the steering wheel cannot heat up due to the temperature cut-off.

Re: Heated Steering Wheel Inop!!

Was outside temperate 40F degrees or below? That's the temperature that they turn on if you have them set to activate automatically.

Heated Steering Wheel Inop!!

Im in AZ so I would never see temps below 40 thank god. But close some times.

I would manually turn it on and it would heat up a little and 20 seconds later shut off. Also this behavior wasn't the case all the time. Just some of the time. I'm glad the TSB states that it may be intermittent so it won't have to be replicated.

"SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
A customer may describe that the heated steering wheel shuts off too soon, usually after 30 seconds and does not achieve satisfactory temperature. This is an intermittent condition and more noticeable at temps below 19.5C (67.1F)."

Seems like the TSB from 11/14/15 addresses it. http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_0811315.pdf

Heated Steering Wheel Inop!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. I just recently noticed my steering wheel will only get hot for about a minute, then basically turn off even though the button is lit red.

Guess it's back to the dealer for yet another TSB

Re: Heated Steering Wheel Inop!!

I had this same problem with my 2015 Summit. Dealer applied the TSB update and so far it works now.
