Question for the group. I have a 2006 F250 Lariat and it has heated seats,
which for the most part work great. But they don't automatically turn off
when the engines stopped. I mean they're off when the trucks not running but
as soon as I start the truck they're back on. Is this by design or is there
a problem?

I don't know, luckily I did not get them. But just wait until you discover
first hand, that the heated side mirrors dry more dirt onto the mirror than
they melt ice off. Ford really needs to put an on/off switch on these damn
things...

Dunno 'bout the 06, but my '02 shuts off automagically and won't come
back on until I mash the button again. If they happen to be on when I
shut down, they're off when I start back up again.

If they are like those in my Excursion, they are operated with a
push-on/push-off switch type switch, not a timed switch.

Mine is doing the exact same thing; do you have any trouble with your parking sensors or the parking brake light coming on the dash? Mine comes on on the driver side every time I turn the switch on but I removed the relays for now, but I'd like to know what's causing the problem because on the AUX switches that came with the truck for some reason the 3&4 switches light up when flipped, but the 1&2 don't and I just had the circuit board behind the speedometer (one the odometer is on) replaced & reworked but the seats are still on & the parking sensors can't be turned on so I don't know what is going on it was acting extremely crazy with the electrical prior to the circuit board replacement, but that wasn't a one size fits all like I was hoping for..
