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.

Cold Weather Group Not Working

I've been experiencing this issue with my cold weather group where sometimes when I start the vehicle, the heated steering wheel and heated seat light on the driver's side don't turn on, but the seat and steering wheel still heat. When this happens, I'm unable to turn the heat off, and it feels much weaker than it would normally, like it is running at half strength. If I turn the car off and back on, it usually fixes the issue (usually).

Sometimes when the lights DO turn on, no heat comes out. Other times they get extremely hot. It's kind of like it does whatever it wants. I've only been experiencing this issue in temps 40 degrees F or less (so far).

I've taken it to the dealership service center 3 times and they tell me it is working fine, since they can't get it to happen while servicing it. I've shown them videos and even had it verified by a Jeep technician at the time of drop off, but they always tell me that there is nothing they can do about it.

Any ideas as to what is causing this so I can point them in the right direction?

Here's a link to a video I took while the car was running.
