I find that after initial warm up it heats by "zone" and the heated parts rotate. See if another part of the wheel is being heated when you find one part is not.Bumping this thread with a related question .... Just picked up my 2021 Wrangler Sport S and I find that the heated steering wheel heats up very quickly, gets nice and hot, but then cools down significantly after about 10 minutes or so. Does it heat back up to "hot" again after a certain amount of time, or is it normal for it to stay just luke warm after the initial hot start-up?
I guess I could always turn it off and then turn it back on to get it into "hot" mode again, assuming that would work.
I'll double-check, but it seems that the entire steering wheel cools down and stays lukewarm, but not "hot" in any one section and/or on any rotation of heat. Only had the Jeep two days, so I'll run some tests. Thanks.I find that after initial warm up it heats by "zone" and the heated parts rotate.

Yeah, I guess it depends on the manufacturer. I owned a 2015 BMW X1 for a couple of years and that heated steering got hot AND stayed hot. I guess the Jeep steering wheel is supposed to give you a quick jolt of heat in the cold, but is not meant to maintain the heat at a high level.I've had several vehicles with heated steering wheels, with one of them being a Grand Cherokee, and I don't feel any different with the JL as with the others. They will heat your hands up while wearing gloves. I don't think they are there to constantly heat up non gloved hands. Your car heating up while driving should take care of non covered cold hands.
