    Heated Steering Wheel Issue

    Nothing like jumping in the JL on the morning of a -23 degree day to discover the heated steering wheel doesn't work. Pushed the button and the light turned on for a few seconds, then went out. The seats warmed up fine, maybe just a loose fuse or wire? I was happy the engine started right up which is more than I can say about my wife's Lexus.
    Thankfully I parked in a heated garage at work today so if the wheel doesn't warm up when I leave I'm off to the dealership...
    Anyone else having issues post-polar vortex??

    Our passenger seat does that every once & awhile. Turn the vehicle off then back on & it seems to work again.

    Might not work being that cold. Iíve heard of those issues on other vehicles when itís super cold. Works when it warms up.

    I live in MN and left my jeep out all night during this polar vortex in -35 weather. Turned on with remote start and everything heated up fine! Well... tire pressures were low but I think thats just physics! This should be under warranty though right?

    Checked the fuses and there were a few loose (including the heated wheel). Snugged them up and haven't seen any issues, although it's been significantly warmer so who knows

    Mine does this also. It picks a chooses what isnt going to stay on either the wheel or one of the seats. No fix so far as they always work when at the stealership
