    Default anybody got Heated seats

    Fitted heated seats tonight but im not sure if they are working!, the switches illuminate as they should and when turned on the light comes on but the seats dont really feel hot to the touch,
    Am i expecting too much and do they only get sort of lukewarm when sitting on them?

    In winter, I can't put them on more than the 2nd click of the rotary switch without them being uncomfortably warm.

    When you say "don't really feel hot to the touch" is that with your hand, or your arse on the seat? If I switch mine on, they don't feel very warm just touching them with my hand, but are very warm to the arse cheeks.

    As I understand the circuit if the light comes on then it is complete and should be working.

    Correct. You wouldn't want to drain your battery while warming your tush now would you?
