Ford Escape: Heated seats (if equipped)
WARNING: Persons who are unable to feel pain to the skin because of advanced age, chronic illness, diabetes, spinal cord injury, medication, alcohol use, exhaustion, or other physical conditions, must exercise care when using the seat heater. The seat heater may cause burns even at low temperatures, especially if used for long periods of time. Do not place anything on the seat that insulates against heat, such as a blanket or cushion, because this may cause the seat heater to overheat. Do not puncture the seat with pins, needles, or other pointed objects because this may damage the heating element which may cause the seat heater to overheat. An overheated seat may cause serious personal injury.
Note: Do not do the following:
Х Place heavy objects on the seat
Х Operate the seat heater if water or any other liquid is spilled on the seat. Allow the seat to dry thoroughly.
To operate the heated seats:
Х Press the button located on the instrument panel to activate.
Х Press again to deactivate.
