Does the TSB only apply to MKCs with the Reserve equipment package?
Please advise us what all this is entailed with fixing the heated front seats, including parts & labor time. I'm scheduled to go the dealer on Thursday next week. Thanks!Hey guys,
Just thought I'd drop in and let everyone know (not sure if it's been mentioned on here yet) that there's a new TSB out for the MKC regarding the heated seats being inoperable or taking too long to get warm. I work at a Ford dealer so I see all of the latest service info for each vehicle. Mine has the problem, but it does eventually heat. It is just very weak and takes a very long time for it to warm up.
The TSB is 15-0027, And it reads: Some MKC models built on or before 2/20/2015 may exhibit a climate controlled seat that does not get hot or does not warm up quickly.
Not sure what the service procedure is, but my car is booked in for Monday to get it done! It is also going to have the ambient lights in the passenger door looked at as they have not worked since new. I'll keep everyone posted as to how it turns out after the TSB is done.
I may not be the best judge of the labor time as I'm an employee so I get the backburner, but I'll be sure to report what the RO says after the repairs are done.Please advise us what all this is entailed with fixing the heated front seats, including parts & labor time.

Sounds exactly like my situation Trainman, took the MK to the dealer and the seats met the criteria for the TSB, so they ordered seat bottoms and backing pads for mine. The parts should be in pretty quick, they were a USA No-stock item.I also brought my car in today for its first oil change and inspection. Told the service mgr about the slow heated seats. He found TSB 15-0027 ( mentioned at the beginning of this thread). They tested my seats and determined they did not meet specification. They ordered 2 seat cushion pads and 2 seat backing pads for both front seats. Should be in later this week. Will let u know when they r installed and how they work. I must admit this was not a big deal for me. Thank goodness for the quick heated Steering Wheel, now that would have been a big deal living in northern Ohio. :smile
Back at you dude.I don't know what your issue is dude. My issue was resolved. You obviously have more issues outside of your MKC. Good luck on all accounts.
You shouldn't copy little pieces off others. :frownJust got my car back today after ford dealer repaired the heated/air seats and foam. He had my mkc for 2 weeks and was put in a rental since the lincoln dealer is too far away. He did tell me that the parts were indeed on back order but he was going to make a call and see if he could get the required items off the assembly line. I had no idea what he was talking about but he got them and they work great:laugh. The reason the car was kept so long was that he also replaced the push button start recall and accidentally broke the dash housing and that part took a week to come in.
