Front seat warmers

Seat warmers are provided to warm the seats during cold weather.


The seat warmers can cause a SERIOUS BURN, even at low temperatures and especially if used for long periods of time.

Passengers must be able to feel if the seat is becoming too warm so they can turn it off, if needed.

People who cannot detect temperature change or pain to the skin should use extreme caution, especially the following types of passengers:

  • Infants, children, elderly or disabled persons, or hospital outpatients.
  • People with sensitive skin or who burn easily.
  • Fatigued individuals.
  • Intoxicated individuals.
  • People taking medication that can cause drowsiness or sleepiness.


NEVER place anything on the seat that insulates against heat when the seat warmer is in operation, such as a blanket or seat cushion. This may cause the seat warmer to overheat, causing a burn or damage to the seat.


To prevent damage to the seat warmers and seats:

  • Never use a solvent such as paint thinner, benzene, alcohol or gasoline to clean the seats.
  • Do not place heavy or sharp objects on seats equipped with seat warmers.
  • Do not change the seat cover. It may damage the seat warmer or air ventilation system.

While the engine is running, push either of the switches to warm the driver’s seat or front passenger’s seat.

During mild weather or under conditions where the operation of the seat warmer is not needed, keep the switches in the OFF position.

• Manual temperature control

Each time you push the switch, the temperature setting of the seat is changed as follows:

-- Front seat

• Automatic temperature control

The seat warmer starts to automatically control the seat temperature in order to prevent low-temperature burns after being manually turned ON.

You may manually press the switch to increase seat temperature. However, it soon returns the automatic mode again.

  • When pressing the switch for more than 1.5 seconds with the seat warmer operating, the seat warmer will turn OFF.
  • The seat warmer defaults to the OFF position whenever the ignition switch is in the ON position. However, if the Auto Comfort Control function is ON, the driver’s seat warmer will turn on and off depending on the ambient temperature.
  • Auto Comfort Control (for driver’s seat, if equipped)

The seat warmer automatically controls the seat temperature depending on the ambient temperature when the engine is running. If the seat warmer switch is pushed, the seat warmer will have to be controlled manually.To use this function, it must be activated from the Settings menu in the AVN system screen. For more details, refer to the separately supplied Car Infotainment System manual.
