Heated seat question

Has anyone experienced their passenger complaining that the heated seat does not warm up
My wife and I went for a ride last night and on the way back she turned the seat heater on and said she could feel no difference (was on for about 3/4 of an hour) she tried both settings but could not feel anything. she was wearing riding Jean's. The symbel on the dash was lit up. I searched and found a thread on seat getting too hot but did not find any with my issue
Thanks

Never had an issue on my GA I have not had it that long. This is my wife's favorite part of the bike.

Mine get quite hit in the high setting. If you have a GT with split rider/pillion seats, are the cables for both seats connected?

Does the rear heat request show up on your dash indicator?

I've found that it takes quite a while for the rider or pillion to feel the seat heat, but I would have thought 3/4 of an hour would have been enough! Check connection under the seat and turn on the rider heat as well and test them both on a longer ride.

If the symbol for the dash is lit, that means the seat is connected. You can't get the symbol on the dash without it being connected since the switch itself is in the seat.

It is possible that part of the connector is broken, I suppose, but it can't be disconnected if the symbol is lit.

Run it for a while, then feel the seat. Is it warm?

I found the pads in my suit can isolate me from the heat.
