2016 kia soul heated seat question

Asked by Mar 07, 2016 at 05:14 PM about the 2016 Kia Soul

Question type: Car Customization

I purchased A 2016 kia soul with heated seats to
be put in after sale . after they were put in, the  
papassenger side seat did not have heat, the back
rest did. O paid 800 to have heated seats not just a
heated back rest. The dealer sail the installer said
could not put heated seat in passenger side due to
air bag sensor. I talked with another kia dealership
who has never had a problem putting heated seats
in front passenger. Not sure who to believe, also
heat wont turn off on drivers seat

Tell them you paid for it and you want it installed. Never heard of any other cars trucks or suvs having this issue.

Agreed. Your need to remind them you paid for the seats and the installation. If heated seats affect the airbag sensor, why do some many vehicles have them? Sounds fishy to me.

its a liability and a safety issue. Theres basically a touch screen in the seat and if a heating element is put in, it will be damaged and cause the air bag not to deploy. Legally, dealerships can't install them. Its a stupid design but would you rather be dead or have a cold butt?
