Question Ventilated seats not really ventilating???

Hello all, have a question and was wondering if anyone else is having the same issue, I have noticed that my ventilated seats don't really ventilate, I mean I hit the on switch and hear the fan kick on but really is not noticeable, seems that a few months back seemed to work just fine, but now that we have been having 70-80 degree days here in Chicago, I try to use them and am disappointed to say that they are lacking the ventilation.

Being a 2011 I'm guessing it's still under warranty. I would have the dealer check to ensure the fan ducts are in proper place.

BTW - If you installed set covers, they have a pretty negative affect on the seat ventilation.

Bring that sucker back to dealer and have them take a look at it. I know that mine are still cooling in the GA heat.

I took it the dealer and to my disgust, the "service reps" were doing there own "testing", then I asked them if it was going to take any longer to give me back my truck I would take to another dealer, they then got a tech on it to check and said that it was working normally that its a "design flaw". Well needless to say I am not satisfied with that and will be taking it in to another dealer for them to check yet again.

Well went to a different dealer and was told the same thing, that the ventilation is working as it should and they found no problems. Guess I will have to deal with it, until some more people complain about it.

They work really good when the A/C or vent is on and you are using at least one of the options that blows the air to the floor. Mine vent so good I get cold and half to turn it off from time to time. I got in the truck another time after getting caught in the rain and almost hyped out it got so cold...
