The heated seats in my Fiesta ST get really warm, then seem to get cooler. If I turn them off then back on, they will do the same pattern again. I haven't really tried a long enough trip to see if they get really warm, then slightly warm, then really warm again and I haven't had enough time with our SEMA FiST to compare. Anyone else seeing the same thing?

Yeah, they seem to get hot quickly, then taper off and hold that for a long time. Usually by then I have turned them off since the regular heat has started to warm the cabin. I also never tried leaving them on for a long period of time.

I left them on recently and they definitely cycle on and off. It seemed to be that they got warm when I was punching it. I'm pretty sure that was my imagination! Maybe the heater coils are powered by the turbo, yeah that's it! o_O

Not sure if is the same stuff ford puts on the F150s but for some reason they took a while to break in.

Was barely warn during the first or so dozen uses, then it got nice and toasty.

I thought that at first too. I think I've gotten more used to it, because I leave them on alot longer now.
Bout the same on warm days like above zero it get hot and on a winter day below zero they are just right and this year they have been right more than not.. ;)

Oh no.... this is bad..... you've got the.... AP induced heat irregularity syndrome!! I heard it blows cars up if left unresolved for too long.

I am pretty sure that giving me your AccessPort is the only way to resolve this issue.

I would gladly relieve you of such a burden. I would do that for you.

Just throwing that out there. :troll:
