Click when heated seats on/off, do you have it?

Hi all!

So i have about 950 miles on my car now and just noticed a weird thing, when i turn on or off heated seats i hear this instant click.
It only happens 1 click when turn ON and 1 click when off.

Do any of you have it as well?
Do any of you do NOT have it ?

Thanks!

I don't have an MKC yet but have driven one for a day. I did use the heated seats but didn't notice any unusual sounds. I would expect a relay to be switched on and off to control the heater current and a click would be normal.
midnite cruiser and 2015 MSM like this.

This is the 2nd winter with my MKC and I have never noticed a click but then I always have the radio turned on. I will have to pay more attention the next time I go for a ride.

I hear a small click when I turn them on or off (using the hard buttons at the very bottom of the center console, not the buttons on the screen), but I don't hear any clicks when cycling through the three temperature selections; only when switching them on or off.

I hear it when I turn off my cooling and heating, but I don't recall a click when I turn them on.

There is a seat control module located under the seat - That may be what you are hearing:

I paid close attention yesterday and I hear the click when both turning the heated seats on and off but not when changing from hi to medium to low.

Yes the click is only when you turn them ON or OFF..

so i guess what i hear is normal since everyone else has it as well!

Thanks to everyone who replied and tested in their vehicle!

2017 MkC, It's a Lincoln...it's stock, it's a Lincoln!
2011 5.0.. Not a Lincoln, not stock. 675WHP/588WTQ.
