Ventilated front seat turning on automatically

I am wondering if anyone else has the same experience, the ventilated driver front seat would turn on automatically when I start the vehicle on a warm day.

It only happens above certain temperature and only on the driver seat.

How can I prevent the ventilated seat from turning on automatically?

Re: Ventilated front seat turning on automatically

Under Uconnect settings in Owner's Manual:

"• Auto-On Driver Heated/Ventilated Seat & Steering
Wheel With Vehicle Start — If Equipped
When this feature is selected the driver’s heated seat and
heated steering wheel will automatically turn on when
temperatures are below 40 F (4.4 C). When temperatures
are above 80 F (26.7 C), the driver vented seat will
turn on. To make your selection, touch the “Auto Heated
Seats” soft-key, until a check-mark appears next to the
setting, showing that the setting has been selected. Touch
the back arrow soft-key to return to the previous menu."

Re: Ventilated front seat turning on automatically

Thanks Jacko,

I just checked and found out I do not have the "Auto-On Comfort & Remote Start" softkey in my vehicle where the "Auto-on Driver Heated / Ventilated Seat" option is located.

Maybe because mind is a export vehicle (Australia) and that softkey option is not available?

Re: Ventilated front seat turning on automatically

Could be. I've noticed export vehicles occasionally have some odd differences from North American models.
