For those of you in Canada or the US where temperatures are now freezing or below does the heated steering wheel in your 2018 SL (or Platinum, ME or SV) turn on when you remote start your vehicle.
According to the brochure it should but there is no mention of this feature in the manual. I experimented today after the Mo had sat outside for a few hours, the temperature being below freezing. Remote start worked fine and there was airflow from the vents. But while the vehicle is in remote start mode, i.e. have not applied the brake and pressed the start button, the heated steering wheel does not and will not turn on. Once out of remote start mode it can be turned on and warms up very quickly.
Curious to know the experience of others before I head to the dealer.
By comparison all features work as advertised in our 2016 Altima SL.
My 2017 Platinum heated steering wheel turns on when I use the remote start in freezing temps.
Only thing that doesnt seem to turn on are the seats if they are in the off mode. Which is odd because manual says to turn off the heated seats when turning car off but then again they wont heat if the switch is off and remote start is used. Unless mine are broken....
