Platinum Heated Steering Wheel - No Heat.

My first post; great resource by the way.

I purchased a new 2013 Platinum a month ago. I don't get much time to drive it because of my job but am now convinced my heated wheel does not work. I doubt I will use it much but I need to track down the issue and will avoid the dealer when possible.

Has anyone else encountered this issue?

Questions 1:
Where does the heat emanate from on the wheel (10' & 2' - 8' & 4')?

Question 2:
Do the other setting effect when the wheel will heat (as in, will the wheel not heat if ambient temp is too high or the AC is cooling)?

I have checked the fuse for the "Heated Steering Wheel Control Module" and it Ohms out fine.

Thanks for the help,

I can't feel any heat either. I've had it on for a few minutes a couple of time and didn't feel anything. I was planning to wait until winter before trying again. Like you said though, I doubt I'll ever use it - just curious if it actually works.

LOL. I will probably use it in the winter, I just didn't want to sound like a **tch.

Regardless, it should be working since I only have 230 miles on this truck. I really can't stand the thought of the dealer's shop guys tearing through my dash (breaking tabs, losing felt, etc. looking for the culprit.

I want to try and locate it myself.

It dose not heat from the wood part on the top the heat comes from 3 and 9 o'clock where the wheel mounts .. it is not real hot.. just warm.. I have tryed it when it is about 65 or hotter and not even noticed it.. but crank up that truck on a cool morning and turn it on it is just right !

IIRC it only warms the wheel to 80-85 degrees so if its warm out you won't even notice. When the temp outside drops you should feel the difference.

Well today I notice the steering wheel heating. I think it may have to do with exterior temp as it was a bit cooler this morning...

Thanks to those that replied.
