The front seat warmers are controlled by the Seat Warmer switches, which are on the center console. The switch nearest the driver controls the driver’s seat, while the switch nearest the passenger controls the passenger’s seat. To turn on either seat warmer, or to adjust the seat warmer, press the switch. If the switch has two illuminated indicator lights, then the seat warmers are on the High setting. If the switch has one illuminated indicator light, then the seat warmers are on the Low setting. If the switch has no illuminated lights, then the seat warmers are off. Tip The heating system may automatically turn off if the seats get to warm.
