Question Driver's heated seat won't stay on

We have a 2015 Cherokee Limited. My wife tried to use the driver's heated seat today and found that it won't stay on. (I have no idea if it ever worked as I never use it and my wife can't remember the last time she tried, if ever) The passenger seat works perfectly.

When you press the icon for the driver's heated seat in the Uconnect screen, it'll stay lit for approximately 3 to 4 seconds and turn off. I looked at the 'Settings' menu and didn't find any option that might can control over the driver's seat heating.

Any ideas?

Depending on when you push that button, the uconnect may still be in boot up and cycle the seat off. Is she (or you) activating the seat heater after the vehicle has been running for 30 seconds or so? I have found that if you try on the first screen that shows the icon, it can cycle off.

I use the 1st screen buttons almost all the time and I've never had issues with the heated/cooled seats or wheel cycling off.

Hi Max57,

You can find more information about how the heated seating feature in your vehicle works in your Owner’s Manual by visiting http://www.mopar.com/jeep/en-us/care...ge-center.html and reading pages 148, 374, and 395. If you need further assistance with this concern, I am happy to help schedule you an appointment at a certified dealership for diagnosis. Please feel free to reach out.

Might be too warm outside for the seat to stay on...

I don't think this is the case as I've used mine in the summer a few times with no problems. Especially since the OP states the passenger one works fine, but the drivers side stops.

I'd say a trip to the dealer!

Yeah, I have to agree. I think a trip to the dealer is in order now. The driver's seat heating clearly isn't working. I've tried all different scenarios and settings. Regardless of the situation, the heat icon only stays on for 2 to 3 seconds. Passenger seat works perfectly.

Same issue here

So I just noticed that when I use the remote start in the morning the heated drivers seat fails to stay on. I have a 2014 Latitude. The passenger seat works fine. If I try turning on the seat later during the same trip that started with the remote start, it lights up but within 3-4 seconds, it goes out. The feature does seem to work correctly later on in the day when I run errands. The outside temperature has no effect on the seat working unless your referring to it going on automatically when you use the remote start. I'm off to the dealer on Monday.

We've never used the remote start function so I doubt that's my problem. I'm calling the dealership now to make my appointment.
