Subaru Forester: Seat, seatbelt and SRS airbags / Seat heater (if equipped)

The seat heater is equipped in the front seats or rear seats (window side seating position).

The seat heater operates when the ignition switch is either in the “ACC” or “ON” position.

Safety precautions

CAUTION

  • People with delicate skin may suffer slight burns even at low temperatures if they use the seat heater for a long period of time. When using the heater, always be sure to warn the persons concerned.
  • Do not put anything on the seat which insulates against heat, such as a blanket, cushion, or similar items. This may cause the seat heater to overheat.
  • When the seat is warmed enough or before you leave the vehicle, be sure to turn off the seat heater.

NOTE

Use of the seat heater for a long period of time while the engine is not running can cause battery discharge.
