My rear seat heating won't turn off.

I must have an imaginary friend because my rear set heating is on all the time despite the switch in the middle position.

Any ideas chaps. I'll take it back to Triumph when I am able but at the moment I'm heating the atmosphere,   :008:

Best guess is the switch is broken

Unlock the back seat and unplug it for now.

Like Berber says but you have to admit it gives new meaning to the old saying "in the hot seat"

Hate to ask but is it possible it was switched with grip heater which is on but you wouldn't feel it?

How do you mean? I actually had my grips and front seat on low (in bloody wales, soaked through in a thunderstorm) but the rear was just on full and stayed on.  :187:

Any, went back to Triumph, they will look at it next week after a switch arrives.

Has it always been like that? Switches rarely fail on! Relays have been known to stick on. Is it possible you have the rear seat plugged into the front control, and the front seat plugged into the rear control? The wires will reach, and they are the same plug ends.
