Hello all, I've had my 3 since 3/30/19 and I know that I tried the seat heaters probably once for functionality and haven't needed them since. Well, a few days ago I read a post where someone had lost the rear seat heaters due to de-accessorizing. I have premium interior but I double checked via the climate? screen and played with the new graphic putting the heaters on and off. Outside temp (MA) was in the mid 70's. The next day I was convinced that the driver's heater was on but as the screen and the app both said they were off, I figured it was related to the 85 degree weather. Yesterday, the temp never reached 70 and the driver's seat (only) was truly warm all the time and as it was concentrated under my legs and mid back I was theorizing that it was my body heat. I used that theory because I've noticed forever that the spot where I generally hold the steering wheel is always very warm. Today, the temp is in the low 60's and I still feel the heat in that seat only. I've done a reset, cycled the AC, and put all seats on high for a few minutes before shutting all off. All shows off on the screen and on the lower menu bar there are no red squiggles and my phone app shows them to be off. Checking through this forum and googling has not revealed a similar problem. How do I check to confirm that this is a car issue vs. an old man's body temp calibration? Are there areas other than my legs and back (headrest maybe) that would be warm with the heater on? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
