That was me and I was passing info I had heard along. I did some research and it seems they don't "suck", they "blow". Sorry for the confusion.

From the owners manual:

Quote:
On some models, both the driver and passenger seats are
ventilated. Located in the seat cushion and seatback are
small fans that draw the air from the passenger compartment
and blow air through fine perforations in the seat
cover to help keep the driver and front passenger cooler
in higher ambient temperatures.

Re: Ventilated Seats

well, according to
the air is drawn from the seats and exausted to the rear passenger department.
Sounds like sucking, not blowing

Re: Ventilated Seats

Whatever. In any event, I just wanted to confirm that the "temperature" that they suck or blow at, is not actually controlled by the A/C per se, but rather the same as the ambient temperature in the cabin, correct? So if the air in the cabin is warm, they'd be less noticeable, vs. the cabin air being cold as a result of the A/C being turned on, making the air the ventilated seats are blowing, bin cool?

I knew I heard that somewhere, that was where. I guess the printed manual isn't as "descriptive" and simply used the word "blow" instead of the paragraph description in the video.

As for the OP, yes, it's using ambient air and not tied into the HVAC system.
