The heated seats come on automatically every time I get into the car. Is this configurable and can I change the default? Is it related to the outside temperature?

The owner's maunal is your friend! :)
Yes, go into controls settings to change the temp that activates them (set @ 40 degrees from the factory). You can change the temp or turn it off altogether.
Jimmy ... I do not believe you can "change the temp" as you say. Yes, you can go into Uconnect (radio) settings and change say, when the heated seats / steering wheel will turn on automatically.

It's in the radio settings? Can't think why I didn't think of that first, of course it's in the radio settings...

I can only speak for the 8.4” radio, but I just went outside to verify. If you go to Apps, Settings and then Auto On Comfort, you can turn on the heated steering wheel and seats with remote starts or all starts. I believe one of the previous posters verified it will come on at 40 degrees or below. Here are a couple pics.

Just noticed your location. This would be for a US vehicle. Not sure if applicable overseas. :)

Thanks, Rob...I was just going to post the same thing. I stand corrected on being able to change the temp on setting...not sure where I got that in my head!

Friggen love the heated seats. Sold a 08’ F150 super crew for the Rubi. Never had them before and am somewhat disappointed when the temps are above 40. Talk about being spoiled! LOL

Also, I don’t believe the option of turning it off is available on the Sport and Sport S, can’t say the same of the Sahara

In my Sport S (5" Radio), I have these 3 options: Off | Remote Start | All Starts

This is under "Auto Comfort Systems" in the settings menu.

I'll have to look again, I thought I had looked once and couldn't find it.
