Heated Seats would be nice

VENT ON: Ok, who's bright idea was it to make the heated seat function only operable after you start the car. It would be so nice to auto-start the jeep and jump into a nice warm jeep and nice warm seat when its 15 degrees outside.

VENT OFF!!

Re: Heated Seats would be nice

I'm just saying it would be nice to be able to turn them on and not get reset once you turn off the vehicle. Kind of like your heat/AC, Radio, ect. Leather seats are just cold in the winter.

Re: Heated Seats would be nice

The new wk2 and durango has a setting so when its cold outside you can have the heated seats, heated steering wheel, defrost, etc come on with the remote start.

Re: Heated Seats would be nice

there is a mod you can do to have them come on with remote start. But it does require soldering to the back of the switch and running a wire into the engine compartment. Its an easy mod to do, i just haven't had the time to get to it. I'll see if i can find a link to it.

Re: Heated Seats would be nice

My WJ is a switch and will always stay in the ON position and whenever I remote start it the seats go on. I would assume the switches would be the same for the newer Jeeps but obviously not. Hmmm...

The WK isn't an "on/off" rocker switch like the WJ. It's just a push button that sends a signal to the computer.

Maybe it's me, but mine don't seem to warm up at all unless your actually sitting in the seat. Is it tied to a sensor like the air bag on the passenger side? If I start the WK and let it run with the key in (not auto-start) and turn the heated seat on it doesn't seem to be warm at all. But works fine if you sitting in it.
My WJ seat would burn my ass when I jumped in after 5-10 minutes.
