Should be the same as the seats. On and off when one wants it to be
You seem to be confusing the timer function with the switch. The driver turns them on and off when they want to-- that's the switches. The timer, I imagine, is intended to keep the wheel from getting too hot-- it's out of the control of the driver.
In any case, you CAN turn them on and off whenever you want. You just can't make the wheel keep heating constantly. That's a different issue than one or both retaining the same state as when the car was turned off.
Why do you think the seat switch and wheel switch should function the same?
I am not confused. Do the seat warmers have timers (uhm)
As I said before, the driver should be in control. What is the point of having 2 different types of switches for essentially the same thing that is heating an item be it steering wheel or seat.
I have again read online that some reviewers found it odd that the steering wheel heater doesn't remember to be on when you turn the vehicle on like the seats do
Since we've been discussing the heated steering wheel, here's a interesting warning from the 17 OM:
Most of those individuals [excluding delicate skin, some physically challenged, and "elderly"] shouldn't be sitting behind the wheel at all.
Nevertheless... they persist.
The legal system mandates they add that disclaimer. The sue happy population would jump all over them otherwise.
As for your opinion on who should drive, remember you might be one of those descriptions in the future. Lets be considerate
Apparently you didn't read my exceptions. Obviously the lawyers insist, they do it all the time.
My point was that drunks, impaired people, small children and infants shouldn't be driving, so I found it amusing that they were specified in reference to the heated steering wheel. (flash)
