I also experienced this problem, but it only happened once. I remember my heart sank when the light would not stay on, but I restarted the truck and its been good ever since. Now I just keep my fingers crossed.

Perhaps try disconnecting the battery and resetting the system, I dunno, just a thought.

Back from the bottom. Does anyone know if there was resolution to this issue? My truck did the same thing this morning.

Unfortunately, the very members we were hoping to hear back from as to what the final outcome was, have not been back to provide that information.

I do not believe there is any common failure issue as there is very little discussion about this and many have found that resetting the system by either restarting the truck or disconnecting the battery cable has correct their issue.

I called the dealer and they claimed that it runs on a sensor and will not turn on after a certain cabin temperature. This was after I asked if it ran on a sensor so I am not sure if I gave them the idea or not. Either way it worked after shutting off the truck but then repeated it again. Seems to occur after heating for awhile, turning it off and then trying to turn it on again right away.

I think for the most part, the temperature is not cold enough.....yet. LOL
Us humans think it's cold, but by February we will think this temperature is hot.

Anyone know for certain how this is supposed to actually work.... mine comes on normally when I get in and then seems to "cool" off even though the light is still on. Is it supposed to stay "hot" like the seats do or does it run one cycle of heat and then automatically shut off? When I shut it off for a few seconds and then restart it, it seems to heat back up but it doesn't seem to stay "hot" for extended driving ie won't stay hot for the entire work-home commute. Of note, no issues with the seats staying hot. FYI mine is a new Laramie with <1000 miles

Any thoughts on this... Thanks!! Or point me to another thread,etc.

This is from Chrysler.... not that it helps much....

The heated steering wheel has two selectable settings, ON and OFF. The heated steering wheel only operates with the vehicle’s ignition is in the RUN position, and will always stay in the OFF setting unless the heated seat switch is pressed. Once the switch is pressed the Light Emitting Diode (LED) on the face of the switch will illuminate, indicating that the heating element in the steering wheel is operating. Pressing the switch while the heated steering wheel is on, will turn the heating steering wheel and the LED on the switch off.

Normal heating of the steering wheel will last a minimum of 52 minutes, unless the switch is pressed or a system fault has been set. Heating of the element is controlled by the Heated Seat Module (HSM), also know as the Comfort Seat Wheel Module (CSWM), and a temperature sensor integrated into the steering wheel heating element. The integrated temperature sensor relays the temperature of the steering wheel to the HSM, and adjusts the internal heat setting accordingly.

The Heated steering wheel will automatically shut off if the heating element reaches a temperature greater than 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit).

Thanks for that, I'm going to get an oil change next week just because I want to change the oil that sat in the truck on the lot. I will bring this up at the dealer and then repost their comments.... hopefully can post some followup by late next week.
