Quirk with seat heaters?

I have noticed something odd with my seat heaters. When I turn them on, and select speed 1....I can hear the fans blowing the warm air. When I select speed 2 or 3...I cannot hear the fans, but I can feel warmth.

Is this normal? Seems to me that speed 1 should be quieter than speeds 2 & 3.

Funny, I too noticed it earlier today and was going to ask. I only heard it on the passenger seat though.

I never thought of 1-3 as 'speeds,' but heat levels.

Maybe at 1, a fan distributes the lower heat, and that isn't needed at the higher heat?

Lol...early on when we got our I Pace, the heated seats would turn on the cooling function. Problem disappeared after an update.

I actually think of 1-3 as heat levels too (or used to), but since Jaguar and Land Rover use fans to actually push warmed and chilled air, opposed to just heated wires like most heated seats do...I think of 1-3 as fan speeds in the Jag.

With Jag and Land Rover...the heat and fan are together. The way JLR does the heat and fan together is brilliant....warm, dry air!! Love it.

With their cooled seats, it is actually chilled air, not just a fan/ventilated like most other brands.

I do not. Sorry you do. Is it when running seat heating or cooling on speed/level 1, 2 or 3? And is it continuous, or only upon seat climate start up?

Has anyone run across technical details about how the seat heaters and coolers work in the JLR vehicles? I'm interested in that.
