    Heated Seat Icon on MFD
    on: Aug 28, 2017, 10.37 pm

    I just had my dealer install the heated rider's seat at my first service.  On page 37 of the owner's manual, it shows an icon on the MFD for the heated rider and passenger seats along with the heat setting.  I do not see this when I turn on my seat.  As far as I can tell, the seat heats up, but it has been very hot here. 

    So, should I be seeing the icon on the MFD with only the rider's seat installed or is the icon only illuminated when both heated seats are installed? 

    Thanks for your help.

    The Icon should come on when the Heated Seat is ON ( and the engine is running ).

    It will clear from the display a few seconds after switching the Heated Seat OFF.

    If the Icon does not appear, then it needs to be "enabled" by your Dealer,
    who will have neglected to do so when installing the kit.

    Thanks, Coconut.  I went by the dealer today and they enabled the feature.

    Michel1960 : Some Trophys seem to have been "pre-enabled".

    Other earlier production models needed a "Shorting Plug" that was provided in the Kit,
    which had to be inserted into a specific blanked off socket under the Glove Box to enable the Icons !

    Coconut, how can you tell? I have a 2013 so assume early one... just got a heated seat from a fellow member on Saturday, all works fine but no Icon, its one of the factors that's leading me towards buying a dealer tool. If I need to pay a dealer to do this I might as well put that towards the cost of the tool.

    REWIND ........

    On further reflection, the Shorting Plug and Link referred to is to activate the Heated GRIPS.

    I'm unsure as to whether this is also used for activation of the Heated Seats Icon -
    but possibly / probably not, as the Shorting Plug is included in the Heated GRIPS Kit,
    and not the Heated SEATS Kit(s) !  Apologies for any confusion !

    As bnajack has stated below though, his Dealer was able to activate the Icons.

    The DealerTool after market device can NOT currently be used to activate the Icons
    for Heated Seats OR Grips - although the Company are trying to figure out if they can
    include this feature at some time in the future.
