Yes, It's Fla but I'm in the process of replacing the OEM seat for a custom seat. I wanted to insure it worked before placing them in the new seat. I have a friend who also purchased the same bike. His seating elements don't heat as well.
Note: The hand grips works but the seat. I took it back t the dealer. SME was thinking it may be a sensor preventing the seats to come on due to the current heat in Fla (yes it is 90). I asked why doesnít it effect the handle grips. He stated maybe on a different circuit?
Has anyone heard if this possibly? Wanted to know if any heard of heated seats not coming on due to ambient temperature?
Thinking out of the box. If the seat doesn't heat up above a certain degree (60% or so) maybe if I lower the physical seat with a bag if ice to test. Logically this sounds feasible.
I know my 2010 seat senses the outside temperature and if not around 50, doesn't seem to work. But that is how it was designed. Works fine when it gets chilly. I don't think a bag of ice would change things enough to have it kick on.
But I really can't say on the new model.

Yes , I checked the connector and it's connected. No, the dashboard indictor does not blink...it's steady. BTW, I tried the bag of ice this am before the garage got FL hot. Ice sat on the seat for an hour. No, Glory didn't notice a different?
In the service manual for sure (but mostly troubleshooting info), but it's in the owner's manual... I don't have my owners manual handy but seems to me that the operating range was in it.15* or 18* Celsius (60-ish f).
The grips and seat are part of the same system (linked together) but the grips are not ambient temp sensitive like the seat.
grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!
