Shut off heated seats and steering wheel

I have the cold weather group. I have noticed that when its cold the heated seats and steering wheel automatically come on. Is there a way to stop this from happening ? I can't see any menu in Uconnect to stop this.

Nope. You are just going to have to get used to a warm seat and steering wheel.

i think they only come on when the tempurature is below a certain amount.


This is also what the manual says

Vehicles Equipped With Remote Start Vehicles equipped with Remote Start, the heated seats can be programed to come on during a Remote Start.

This feature can be programmed through the Uconnect® system. Refer to “Uconnect® Settings” in “Multimedia” for further information.

There probably is a way via the OBD2 port...

I'm not sure if there is a VCDS(Vag-com) equivalent for Fiat/Chrysler. But if there is I'm sure it could be shut off.

But a dealer should be able to.

I have remote start and Uconnect 5.0 and there is no way to do this. I have a feeling that Uconnect 6.5 allows this. The manual should be more explicit.

Royalblue:

I checked in the Media Manual for UConnect 5.0 and it states in the settings main menu the following:
Auto-On Comfort — If Equipped
When this feature is selected, the driver’s heated and/or
ventilated seats and heated steering wheel (if equipped)
are activated based on the outside temp. To make your
selection, press the “Off”, “Remote Start”, or “All Starts”
buttons on the touchscreen. (All Starts is functional with
remote start or key start.) Press the “Back Arrow” button
on the touchscreen to return to the previous screen.

Hope this helps!

Uconnect 5.0 is also used in the Jeep Cherokee and other FCA products. Unfortunately the menu option you describe is not in the Jeep Renegade. Thanks for the reply Kathleen. Maybe you can suggest to marketing that they have a consistent menu system for all vehicles that use Uconnect 5.0 to eliminate the confusion.

Does anyone know how to turn off the heated steering wheel once it has been turned on automatically? Mine will not respond to the pushbutton.

Pushbutton does work fine normally - so I think it is a software issue.

The heated seats work fine, and do respond to the pushbutton even when turned on automatically.

Thanks

Exactly! But for whatever reason my heated seats shut off just fine! (actually my wife's car.....). Curious is if I was missing something, or if it was a software bug?
