I spent the better part of two weeks thumbing through the manual after I first brought her home. Plenty of dog-eared pages throughout, lol. There are just so many features it is hard to remember everything. I don't recall reading about this, but that is fine since I enjoy finding and learning new things once in awhile.. keeps things fresh.

This is what I noticed with mine as well.
Very neat features that I use regularly.
Especially in the winter. Grabbing a warm steering wheel is always nice.

I also noticed that the higher your temp, the warmer the steering wheels gets
Again, its a nice know to feature

So, I bought my RAM last October and it got pretty chilly afterward so I quickly learned how my heated seat and steering wheel controls worked. I also learned that using remote start would engage both the driver seat and the steering wheel if the truck believed it was less than 40F outside. Nice!

Now, on the flip side of that. It has been getting more and more hot here in the Utah desert and my husband suggested that I crank the AC to max before parking and turning her off and heading in to go grocery shopping, etc. And then remote starting and that should help it cool off a bit after sitting awhile. I tried this and it seems to work rather well so this has been my routine for about a month.

Cut to yesterday. Something changed! I completed my routine as normal and about half way home I realized that my cooled seat feature was on. Interesting. I noted that the outside temp was above 90F (which most likely meant the cab temp was more). So I guess my RAM kicks the cooled seat on similarly to kicking the heated feature on in the winter. VERY COOL!

Not sure if anyone else knew this, but I was very pleased to learn (and feel) this! Just thought I'd share my little "A-HA!" moment with everyone.
Thats awesome! very nice feature indeed.... and here I was pretty excited to have power windows and integrated satellite..hehehe

Never was a fan of cooled seats. Our ford fusion had them, and it made me feel like I peed myself :P

LOL!
Youre suppose to sit down with your pants dry and not wet already

Kidding....but yea, I hear that a lot even with heated seats.
But on a hot summer days, it comes in handy

It's always kewl (pun intended) to learn new things about our trucks. I recently learned that although you can't manually lock the doors with the key in the ignition, you can with the keys sitting on the center console.

^^^^ Really, I did not know this. I must see if mine behaves the same way. Locking in the keys makes for one bad day

Under 40 for the heated features, over 80 for the cooled features.
