I have so 2010 srx with the premium package. How do I make the seat heaters go on with the remote start?
Thanks

My Escalade does it automatically, guess I figured they would all be like that if equipped.

Moved to SRX -

Is there a procedure for enabling the function in the Personalization section of the Owner's Manual ???

Press the "configuration " button on your console. Scroll thru till you get to the control settings, there is an option to have the heated seats come on when you remote start your vehicle.

Just be aware that The lights on the heated seat buttons don't come on when using remote start... I have a 2012 and I thought I had a problem until I read the note in manual

I too read this note. I wonder f the seat heaters actually DO come on with the remote start. Can anyone confirm this?

I have a 2012 and have also questioned whether the heated seats are coming on with the remote start. According to the 12 manual you must enable them using the vehicle personalization menu or Config button. Also the heated seat lights do not annunciate as stated in the manual. The manual goes on to say 'The temperature performance of an unoccupied seat may be reduced. This is normal.' I agree with that statement as I used the OnStar remote start while in the movie theater the other day and the car was on for about 7-8 minutes. The car was nice and warm but the seats were not as warm as I expected.

So for the most part, they really don't work as expected. If an unoccupied seat doesn't heat up that much, there's no effectiveness to this. I wish the seat heater controls would work on memory. Like if you leave 1 on and turn off the car, when restarted it came back on as before. this would be helpful. The same goes for the steering wheel heater, although that gets going pretty fast.

Well, in -10*C and below, having the heated seats come on when you command start the vehicle sure makes a difference!
