Hyundai Tucson: Seats / Seat Warmers

Seat warmers are provided to warm the seats during cold weather.

During mild weather or under conditions where the operation of the seat warmer is not needed, keep the seat warmers off.


The seat warmers may cause serious burns, even at low temperatures and especially if used for long periods of time.

Passengers must be able to feel if the seat is becoming too warm so they can turn it off, if needed.

People who cannot detect temperature change or pain to the skin should use extreme caution, especially the following types of passengers:

  • Infants, children, elderly or disabled persons, or hospital outpatients.
  • People with sensitive skin or who burn easily.
  • Fatigued individuals.
  • Intoxicated individuals.
  • People taking medication that may cause drowsiness or sleepiness.

Never place anything on the seat that insulates against heat when the seat warmer is operating, such as blanket or seat cushion.


To prevent damage to the seat warmers and seats:

  • Never use a solvent such as paint thinner, benzene, alcohol, or gasoline to clean the seats.
  • Do not place heavy or sharp objects on seats equipped with seat warmers.
  • Do not change the seat cover.

While the engine is running, press the switches to warm the driver's seat, front passenger's seat, or the rear seats.

  • Manual temperature control

Each time you press the switch, the temperature setting of the seat changes as follows:

- Front seats

- Rear seats

  • Automatic temperature control

The temperature is automatically controlled to prevent low temperature burns after manually turning on.

- Front seats

- Rear seats

If HIGH temperature is selected again after the seat warmer turns off, the temperature is controlled automatically again.

  • When pressing the switch for more than 1.5 seconds with the seat warmer operating, the seat warmer turns off.
  • The seat warmer defaults to the OFF position whenever the ignition switch is in the ON position.
  • Auto Comfort Control (for driver’s seat) (if equipped)

- The seat warmer automatically controls the seat temperature depending on the ambient temperature and the set climate control temperature when the engine is running. If the seat warmer switch is pressed, the seat warmer is controlled manually.

- To use this feature, it can be enabled from the Settings menu in the infotainment system. Select: Setup > Vehicle > Seat (or Climate) > Warmer/Ventilation Features > Link to Climate Settings for Auto-Adjustment > Driver Seat Warmer/Ventilation

- The seat warmer defaults to the OFF position whenever the ignition switch is ON. However, if the Auto Comfort Control function is on, the driver’s seat warmer turns on and off depending on the ambient temperature and the set climate control temperature.
