Chevrolet Captiva Owners Manual: Heated Front Seats


If you cannot feel temperature change or pain to the skin, the seat heater may cause burns. To reduce the risk of burns, people with such a condition should use care when using the seat heater, especially for long periods of time. Do not place anything on the seat that insulates against heat, such as a blanket, cushion, cover, or similar item. This may cause the seat heater to overheat. An overheated seat heater may cause a burn or may damage the seat.

The heated front seats in the Chevrolet Captiva 2012 provide added comfort during cold weather. To activate the heated seats, locate the buttons on the climate control panel, which require the ignition to be on. Press the button once for the highest heat setting, indicated by two lights, and press again to reduce the heat level, shown by one light. A third press turns the heater off. It is important to be cautious when using seat heaters, especially for individuals with reduced sensitivity to temperature, as prolonged use can lead to burns or overheating.

Always avoid placing insulating materials like blankets or cushions on the heated seats, as this can cause overheating and potential damage. Additionally, the passenger seat may take longer to warm up compared to the driver's seat. For optimal safety and functionality, follow the vehicle's manual instructions for using the heated seats.
