1- Heater high (for quick heating)

3- Heater low (to keep the seat warm)

The indication lamp (C) will illuminate while the heater is on.

CAUTION

(1) Switch off seat heaters when not in use.

(2) Operate in the high position for quick heating. Once the seat is warm, set the heater to low to keep it warm. Slight variations in seat temperature may be felt while using the heated seats. This is caused by the operation of the heater’s internal thermostat and does not indicate a malfunction.

(3) If the following types of persons use the heated seats, they might become too hot or receive minor burns (red skin, heat blisters, etc.):

  • Children, elderly or ill people
  • People with sensitive skin
  • Excessively tired people
  • People under the influence of alcohol or sleep inducing medication (cold medicine, etc.)

(4) Do not use a blanket, cushion, or other material with high heat insulation properties on the seat while using the heater; this might cause the heater element to overheat.

(5) Turn the heater off immediately if it appears to be malfunctioning during use.

NOTE

(1) Do not place heavy objects on the seat or stick pins, needles, or other pointed objects into it.

(2) When cleaning the seat, do not use benzene, gasoline, alcohol, or other organic solvents; this might damage the surface of the seat, but also the heater element.

(3) If water or any other liquid is spilled on the seat, allow it to dry thoroughly before attempting to use the heater.
