If I trun the ignition off and then restart they come on. Spoke to my dealer and he had no reason but I am sure there is one! I would think that if the sensor gets below 41 they would come on and time out like they usually do but that does not happen. Any explanation? I wonder if the software can be tweaked? thanks
If all else fails read the manuals. (BTW, if you don't have the full set of manuals Chrysler will send you a set for free if you call them at their headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan.) They will tell you the heated seats come on at 40 and below and the vented seats come on at 80 and above. Both only are auto on from a start. Neither comes on just because you hit that temperature going down the road. Garages play havoc with the temperature sensor and if you have parked in a garage for any length of time most likely you will have to turn either the heated or vented seats on manually.
