147 Heated Seats - permanent live?

Hi there,

Thought I'd pop in and post.

My 147 has the heated seats which seem to be on a permanent live (i.e. can be swithced on and off without keys in or ignition on).
Generally I check to see if they are off when leaving the car but on occasions I have left one of the seat heaters on by mistake and ended up with a flat battery (doh!).

Any ideas if the heaters are meant to be able to work without the ignition on?

Hope you can help

Hi S
Just checked my heated seats and they are definitely NOT on permanent live.
I left the seat switched on and took out the ignition key. The seat stayed on for only 30seconds then I heard a small relay click and switch the seats off.
Perhaps you have a faulty relay, mate. Get it checked out before you get another flat battery.

Thanks Ken, thats good of you to check.
I've got a service coming up (on the 20th) so I'll get them to check it out (Bryan Bros, Bristol) along with a few other bits and bobs!

Thanks to all for the help that is posted btw - I have a nice list for them to look at now!

Bye for now
