Okay Guys, be gentle with me on this one


As we are all aware, all Antara trim levels come with heated seats which are turned on by depressing the buttons either side of the electronic handbrake.


Now to the "silly question", when I press the button once, three yellow lights come on......does this signify that the heating is at the maximum setting or the minimum setting ?


I only ask as it seems that the heated seats in my car are warmest when only one yellow light is on.

I believe, John, that the three lights indicate the maximum setting. Must confess that I have not used the bum-warmer much as the car lives in a heated garage

You are correct but not sure why yours works backwards. Did you get an Antara intended for your east end neighbours

Its probably just me



I'm just cannot get my head round why the maximum setting is the first setting.


Thinking about it logically, based on the heated seats settings, then the heater/blower should be at its highest setting when first turned on

Thanks Stephen



You might find that you could use the "bum warmer" much more if you were to actually drive out of the garage

I can confirm 3 is the warmest on my Antara if fact it practically cooks your arse.

To be fair John you probably better not use setting 3 it does say in the manual not to use setting 3 for prolonged periods if you sensitive skin on your Arse.

Just a guess, but it probably comes on at the highest setting so as to give you maximum heat when the seat is cold. Then when it warms up a bit you can turn it down to a lower setting. My Volvo works this way too.

No idea why yours should be hotter at the lower setting. Maybe just an illusion as your bum has warmed up a bit before you put it on low.

In fact I am just a "sensitive" person

Fair point

I recon your car was destined to end up in Ireland and that's why it's back to front

I've got a wife who puts the heated seats on before she starts the engine, she says she gets her priorities right lol

Did just take it out of the garage and went to do a major shopping run down to Portugal as it is Easter and the wife is coming tomorrow. You know the thing, an economy pack of soap when you know that one bar really is sufficient for an entire year, a new toothbrush when there are still half a dussin bristtles left on the old one etc. All to keep the memsahib happy.

Anyway, I digress. I did take the car out and it was pi**ing down all the way there and back. The car looks great after its wash - eat your heart out Grumps; I did it the easy way without all this foamy stuff and breaking your back polishing


Happy days boys....happy days

Paul, I'm just about to take the keys off of my wife and ban her to her own Vauxhall Tigra. No matter how many times I tell her not to turn over the engine until all the dashboard warning lights are extinguished, she just ignores me.



That begs the question....is she just ignoring me as usual or am I not explaining it correctly

Stephen, it may be a "happy" day for you today but some how I think that may change tomorrow
.

You know that no matter how clean, tidy and pristine your flat in Vigo is, with your wife and daughter arriving tomorrow, you'll be for the high jump for something......anything

All women ignore us when it suits them, I have given up trying to explain stuff the other half, it's not worth the energy anymore, 23 years of being wed has done that to me lol

A funny husband/wife joke.....well I think its funny



A farmer walks into his bedroom carrying a lamb under his arm. He walks over to the bed where his wife is lying. "See !" he shouts, "This is the pig that I have to have sex with whenever you get one of your headaches !".


The farmer's wife retorts, "You idiot, don't you realize that's a lamb that is under your arm ?"


The farmer replies, "I wasn't talking to you !!!"

ROFL.
Very good John.
(no lamb smiley so the pig will have to do)

BTW, I see that you have now become a "groupie". Would you care to enlighten us?
