Hi!

I have a 2004 Toyota RAV4 with 'heated seats'. The control switch is for low and high. I can barely feel the heat at the low setting. When I use the high setting, the seat gets comfortably hot for 5 minutes and then the thermostat must turn off or reduce as the temperature decreases to warm. Is this normal? I have been in cars that cost much less and the heated seats worked much better.

heated seats

Howdy,

I've got the heated seats too, although mine seem to stay warm for much longer than 5 mins before shutting off. Either way I love them 8). The low setting is pretty "low" though, just barely takes the edge off, can't say I use it very much either.

Don't forget that the heated seats have a thermostat ... they don't boil your a$$ ... quite normal and as the interior temperature increases you'll get shorter heat burts from your seat ...

Ya, I remember complaining back in 03 that we paid all that cash for a L edition and no Heated seats, no power seats, little adjustments on it.

Mr.Stang / Tenaya, the key is to compansate.

Eat more donuts in the winter months. :wink:

If you can't insulate the seat, then insulate the a$$...


:p
Seriously, I don't mind the cold seats, The cold air bothers my hands more.
Cheers, Walt
