Hi all,
Got my new Taycan and everytime I start the car it turns on the heating on the driver seat. Even though I turned it off and used the memory button.
is it automatically because of the low temperature?

Yes, when it is under a certain degrees outside, the car will detect that and turns on the seat heating automatically. I don't know how to disable that function but I think it's quite convenient. Maybe the Good to know app helps you out?!

Thank you.
there is still a lot to read.
actually got a appointment with the Tech specialist from the dealer tomorrow, but the last time he did not know everything ether. I guess Porsche is faster with changes then they could adapt.

It maybe because the car is set to reach a certain temperature when you unlock the vehicle. Mine was! If you go to the main air con menu in the top right hand area of the screen is the preheat/cool sub menu. Within there towards the bottom is a tick box stopping the preheat function when you unlock the car.
Hope that helps.

When you got to the connect app.
-> Climate
-> top Right ( in german bearbeiten)
-> then you can turn the preheating of the seats on or off individually driver and passenger

Thanks - have seen that and the above seems to be a one off setting whereas the other is every time the car is unlocked. Then you have the timers as well!!!

With the option turned off at the driver seat this seat does not heat up everytime I unlock the car and drive anymore.

Your battery level is causing me stress. Please charge your phone.

Anyone has this issue if you try and change Climate settings?

I think that happens when your Connect app cannot connect to the car... I have this problem as my car is in an underground parking... There is WIFI there but oddly may car does not seem to have the option to connect to an external WIFI.

I am also having the heated seat problem and the car keeps wanting to warm up the car, despite having unchecked the boxes in the timer. As I am underground the car is never really that cold, but odd that I can not turn it off.

Hi it might not be the timer setting - see my posts and Schlarbsi’s above.

Hi - Did you set a PIN and load it into the car at collection? Is this the only Connect function that does not work?
I only ask because I know this aspect of setting up the car can be a bit tricky and for example the PIN needs to be set from a laptop or pc.
