Silver lining...I have not found my seats stuffed with hay yet. But I feel like this whole ordeal smells like digested hay.

Yessir that's what she looks like, first time I unzipped her too, although the dealer had unzipped it a couple of times to reconnect the plastic hoses into the box but I don't think they were smart enough to start wrapping electrical tape on stuff. Quality work rite dere!! LMAO

Thought I would check to see if there was a resolve, I'm eye-balling a Blue Jean Platty but not with bad seats.

I'll check back

Ran my seats this afternoon just for the heck of it. On 3 bars of cooling the back heated up much faster then the bottom cooled off. I think the bottom needs some help also. I ran them for 20 minutes till my back started to sweat and the bottom was very cool. Couldn't feel any air at all just the seat kinda cooling off. How is everyone's seat bottom working? Maybe Ford needs to redesign something there as well!!

I've honestly just thought running the passenger seat cooler while nobody is with me in the hopes that it will get hot enough to cause damage - then I would have a concrete reason to go back to the dealer and say "see, you dip****, I told you!"

...should do that

That's actually not a bad idea! I might try that out myself.
Honestly I haven't even been to the dealer to tell them about this problem yet, figured there's no use until there is a fix. I really don't want them taking stuff apart and keeping my truck for days just to tell me it's normal , or that they couldn't figure it out.
Who knows maybe I should at least run it by them so that there's 1 more complaint in the system...

Technically Ford Dealers shouldn't open the seats anymore according to the announcement on Oasis. They only should connect the scan tool and check for DTCs.

That's what they did to me.

Take it for two days, tell me theyre testing and diaging everything, then..."that's how it's supposed to work"

Really....?

The COOLING seat function operates in a fashion that is EXACTLY opposite of it's intended purpose... I have a different button for that!

That argument fell on deaf ears. I wonder if I put a sun visor or a few mags back there would potentially help with the process of it failing?

I dont want to DELIBERATELY cause damage, but I want it taken care of under the damn warranty - I wanna use my cooling seats while it's STILL 105* out here.

-- What? they can't take the seat backs off anymore? How would the seat getting hot cause a DTC?
