I am waiting on a sensor for the DPF it has only been a week since I drove my brand new HC Tahoe off the dealership, never made it 20 miles before Emissions system fault came in then right back to the dealership. When I start it thru the start stop button even in a heated garage 60F the steering wheel heater comes on and also only the driveside heated seat comes on, neither of these should come on. I hope my list doesn't get too long for when it goes in for the sensor replacement.

Dude the heated steering wheel and heated seats coming on automatically is a feature lol. It is set to AUTO. You can turn that off via the infotainment screen. It's under the comfort settings.

In the settings mine is turned off and why would only the wheel and driverseat not passenger seat come on so you are telling me when it is 90F outside they will come on, I sure hope not as I don't think 60F is cold.

I think some of it is dependent on what your system temp setting is at. If its set warmer than outside temp, it may default to turning on the heated wheel and drivers seat.

It also likely defaults to only driver seat as yhe vehicle knows a driver will get in, it doesnt know if there will be a passenger in front or not

Thanks I will look into that as I didn't know about the temp. setting compared to outside temp.

It's temp set sensitive and it knows if you have a passenger or not.

I wondered the same thing until I found the settings for it. Another thing that left me scratching my head was the kick would only open the rear hatch and not close it. Well you guessed it, there is a setting for that. I changed it and all is well.

My washer fluid started to work intermittently and now doesn't work at all. The front and back washer fluid is not working. The wipers work, but no pump and no pump/motor sound. I checked the fuses and they are good. Crazy, it started intermittent right after the recent OTA update. But if it was a software issue then I would not think it would have been intermittent. Has anyone else lost their washer fluid function?

On remote start, they both come on, along w/ the steering wheel when the ambient conditions are right.

When the vehicle is on, if there is only a person in the driver seat, only the driver seat comes on. When both seats are occcupied, both come on. As the vehicle warms up in the cabin they go from high to low.

Don’t like to, turn it off in the settings. It’s working as designed.

I thank everyone here for their helpful imput. I have the emmissions system issue waiting for parts so with that I can not start using the remote as stated in the manual. My 2020 HC Silverado operated differently as the seats would never come on if the truck was in the heated garage but would outside in the cold. Thanks again guys!
