If your car is equipped with them, seat heaters can make driving in cold weather much more comfortable. Your car (again, if equipped) has a heater in both the driver front and the passenger front seats. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. To use the seat heater, locate the buttons on the dash (with the heater and air conditioner controls).

  2. Choose high or low.

Tips

  • The driver front seat has a heater in the seat base, as well as in the seat back. The passenger front only has a heated seat base.

  • When set to high, the heater will automatically turn itself off after it reaches maximum temperature.

  • When set to low, the heater will cycle on and off to maintain the right temperature.

  • Don’t use the seat heaters with the engine not running. This can drain the battery.
