I noticed a week ago the sporadic appearance of a white logo on the left side of the info screen behind the steering wheel. I looked in the manual and could find no warning icon to match. Finally, as I started my car one morning, the whole display said: "Heated wheel is off."
The manual explains how to turn the heated wheel on, but it doesn't clarify if this is a temperature-controlled function. If I leave it on, is the wheel heated constantly, or only below certain ambient temps? Does it switch off automatically after a period of time? In an Audi I previously owned the heated wheel came on when the heated seats were activated. The Phaeton is obviously a different system, but I'm wondering why the icon telling me it was off finally appeared on the display. Because the temp has been falling below 40 degrees outside?
Thanks for any explanations,
