Anyone else have problems with their heated steering wheel? Mine cuts on at start up then goes off in like a minute. I fish a lot and get back in the truck with cold hands just to be disappointed. Took it to my local dealer and they say it’s controlled by the temperature in the truck. I call BS I payed for a heated steering wheel I should be able to control it when I want it.
 
I call BS too!! I can run mine in 70 degree weather as long as I like, just tested this out for you… Visiting family in Florida, love the heated steering wheel in the cold Northeast where I live
 
I remember seeing heated steering wheel settings in the settings menu somewhere. Mine is set to turn on with remote start during cold days only, and it turns off once I get in and go. Otherwise I can just press the button on the dash to turn on the steering wheel heat.
 
The auto start turns it on at a low level with no indicator light. Get in, mash the button and it warms up quick.

If its going off a minute after you manualy turn it on something is wrong.

I looked in settings and didn’t find anything. It doesn’t turn on anytime with the button.

Correction… I checked and there’s no steering wheel heat settings in my truck that I can find, just one called “remote start auto heat seats” which is linked to the steering wheel for cold remote starts. My bad.

Is it possible that the issue is due to the chip shortage? Maybe your steering wheel heat button doesn’t have a chip to operate, but the remote start still activates the steering wheel heat during cold remote starts, I don’t know.

According to my local dealership it has the chip
