You are correct, vented seats are the ones not warming up.

My son ran through the diagnostics this weekend and his conclusion is a poor design. The front seat heaters pulled three amps on high, compare that to the heated steering wheel at seven amps. Everything appeared to be functioning correctly and no DTCs were set.
My rear seats warm up nicely, it is just the front seats. Like said, the low setting, well, my body heat does more than the heater pads. On high, I can barely feel warmth.
I've had heated seats in many vehicles including my wife's Tahoe which has heated/cooled seating and they got nice and warm. All I have left is to beg Chrysler to re-evaluate the seat heating system and release better calibrations.
