Automatic Seat Heating

Had my car in last month for a software update. Now on 11/2019.41

Ever since then the automatic seat heating has not worked. I’ve switched it off and then back on in iDrive, I’ve changed temp setting and amount of seat heating numerous times. No matter what I try it will not come on when the outside temp is below the setting in iDrive. No biggy as I just need to press the button myself but it should work and did work before.

Any ideas?

Sorry I can't be much help but I've been updated to 11/2019 and still have issues with climatising from the app. Sometimes it works others it doesn't.

However when it does I'm pretty sure the seats are heated also

Mine has always been intermittent but does eventually come on.

This part of the Idrive is actually an app can can be found in the app section so the button on the dash links to the app when you press it.

From what I can gather it sometimes takes time to connect to the app to activate the settings so this would be the same with the heated seat activation if that makes sense.

After pre-conditioning I can tell the seat has been on but when I get in the seat turns off, however steeringhweel doesn't turn off. if I haven't preheated then it turns on flawlessly...(but steering wheel doesn't come on auto)

Iíll have a look at the app.

Updated the apps in iDrive today. Seat heating is working but takes a while before it switches itself on. So don’t know now if it was not working or just taking longer to turn itself on and I was being impatient and switched it in before it did it automatically. I’m sure before the software update that it used to start up quicker.

Anyway, all back and working now.

Glad it's working, I do find mine differs so in the morning takes a while could be a mile down the road but if I have not been out of the car for long seems to start quicker.

Every now and again seem to forget the settings.
