    Yep but on FF. Seems to be less recently. May be due to new software

    In the 612 I get notice that the seat heater is on when it clearly isn't.

    Didn't think that problem could happen on newer cars...

    Yepp, it is on my 2016 FF also. I had the switch replaced on warranty 4 (four) times - no difference. It just got to be software error. And yes now when my FF is out of factory warrant (the original 3-years) I have it yet again - no I will NOT change the switch again, since that will not solve the problem. I had this from day 5 or so...

    Was just going to post something on this. ‘13 FF and intermittently getting this error (maybe every third start up). Mine shows passenger side is on level one but when I check it’s turned all the way to zero.

    Does this mean anything? Harbinger for any issue?

    No need to worry. When they go full electric there wont be any issues whatsoever. We'll all just sit back comfortably while the vehicle takes us flawlessly to our destination. Much simpler than detecting if the seat warmers are on don't you know.

    Question: When I get this on my '16 FF, on the driver side seat, I can never feel any air pushing through the seat. It is more like it says "level 1" but is "off" - anyone concur or am I wrong?

    I'm fine with it as long as those systems don't stay on and drained the battery when the car is off.

    I think it means that the seat heating unit needs replaced, which was prohibitively expensive if I remember?

    I have exactly the same problem - I had an issue with the seat cooler working in reverse. Level 0 = Level 3 fan and vice versa as well as the annoying pop up displays.

    I had the switch replaced on the seat so now 0 = 0 but still have the annoying pop ups.

    What I think is happening is that the seat is flexing the PCB that controls the heating and cooling controls. The reason for thinking this is that I have the same problem with the passenger seat but only when someone of larger proportions sits in the seat. When my wife sits there there is no problem.

    The heating and cooling work perfectly it's just the annoying intermittent display - I can live with it I guess.
