: Heated Steering Wheel, not working

07-04-08, 11:23 PM
Hey all

Well I have notice on several attempts that when I press the steering wheel heat button on the wheel nothing happens. Ok the little light on the button lights up, but no hot or even warm wheel? Any clue or comments you all...?

Not that I need it but just wish to make sure everything in my car is working as it should.

The heated steering wheel in my '06 operates in response to the outside temperature. If it's -40F it gets hot as hell. If it's above freezing it doesn't do nearly as much. Maybe you're going to need to wait until fall to see if it works unless you can rent some time and park overnight in a meat packing plant.

As per 'dk' (this from the '06 STS Service Manual)
