Today in the heart of Tejas, fall set in with a seriousness not seen in a year and I knew Winter's coming. I get to the store, 7 mi down the road. The outside temperature is 38 degrees. I begin to feel all warm and cozy and the feeling just grows.

What is different? My Sahara decided that it was too cold outside and automatically kicked the seat heaters on.. and the steering wheel too. Dang.. I didn't even know I had that feature. My Jeep loves me.

I knew I had them, but did not know that they just came on like that until this morning.

There was a UConnect software upgrade over the summer, new feature perhaps?

Mine kicked on automatically and toasted my butt (and hands) when the outside temp in Moab Utah (CanyonLands) was 11-degrees.

for the record, the passenger seat does NOT turn on automatically So my wife’s buns were a little cold until we figured out why I was plenty warm and she was shivering........

That feature has been there (had it on my ‘19). You can turn off the auto-on for the bum warmers (if you have an AT).
Yeah my ‘18 has it also. It’s binary (off or on) in the settings. When turned on it activates when temp is 40 or below. Very very nice when it gets chilly!

If the temperature is below 45 degrees, your Jeep will automatically turn on the driver heater seat and steering when you remote start and also when you regular start. This feature is on by default in Uconnect settings but can be deactivated if wanted.
