Wonder if that car has just the seat heaters, or if it has the entire cold weather package with the battery warmer.

Is there supposed to be any override switch, or any type of display indication which tells whether the battery heater is on or not?

I missed the CW at the end and I only looked at the options section of the sicker. You think it would have been listed as an option and not standard....but I guess it is standard on the CW version. Missed the section with the heated battery, steering wheel and seats. It was dark and they were trying to kick me out to lock up when I was there. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks for the update.

:lol: But you don't really need an excuse :) Glad to help ! I was curious myself.

Strange that there's only one switch (on the left side of the passenger seat) for the entire rear-seating area. And it's apparently a hi-lo-off version. And I didn't ask to look at the inside to see where the switches are for the front seats and steering wheel.

Nice that they put it there. Gives the driver the control over use of that feature.
rear seat passengers can reach it and if they leave it on you can turn it off from the drivers seat.

if the switch was in the way back, a careless passenger could leave it on and you might forget about it.

I think it heats the bottom cushions in the back only. Not the upper seat back

That's what we thought when we took a test drive -- one thing I'd be curious of is if somewhere on the dash they indicate that a seat heater is in use or simply glancing over at the side of the passenger seat will clearly show it's on (by a light illuminating, it's position or both)??

The switch is illuminated when the heater is switched on. No additional indicators on the dash, etc. The same goes for the steering wheel and front seat heaters.

There is no switch for a battery warmer as far as I can tell, if such a thing exists, in my 2012 SL.

The battery warmer is automatic and only works at temperatures many of us will *likely* never experience :roll:
