Has anyone else noticed the heated seats go off after about 15 minutes then come back on after some time?

both my front heated seats do this it’s like some sort of cycle. Is this normal or should I book it in?

I haven't noticed. To be honest with the 80-90 degree F temps we've had, I haven't tested the heated seats. Typically for me, 5-10 min. in cold temps is long enough usage for me.
Have you checked the owners manual for insight?

on Canadian/US models there is an adjustment in the display to set up to tie the heated seats & heated steering wheel with your climate control so that it goes on and off automatically.

Usually the heating pads below the seat covers have a thermostat which prevents overheating. This might explain it.
If you link the heated seats to the climate controls as per above illustration you may also get the behavior.

I’ve searched out a forum for this particular issue. I traded in my 2017 CX-3 and it had the best heated seats. They got very warm and stayed warm until I manually turned them down. It also stayed on the next time I used the car so I never had to remember to turn it on. This is no longer an option with the CX-3 so I upgraded. The heated seats in the 30 are terrible. It warms up and stays warm for about 5 minutes and then they cool down for 10-15 minutes before they heat up again. And the whole time the button is set to 3, it doesn’t lower to 2 or 1 as it’s cooling down. I’ve tried turning it off and back on but it still takes a good 10-15 minutes to heat back up. It’s in for service and they took a look and said nothings wrong.

The heated seats can be linked to the climate control. If this setting has been applied to your seats then maybe they cool down as the internal cabin heat becomes warmer. Just a suggestion and might be worth checking.

as the temperatures was cool enough this morning (12C), I was able to test the heated seats and s/w for the first time as I have it linked to my climate control. It worked great.

I also turned off the climate control and just turned on the heated seats on it's own and it worked fantastic, couldn't take the maximum 3-setting for too long (feels hotter than on my previous vehicle that only had 2-settings). It will interesting to see how it feels when it gets really cold, but so far very impressed.

Climate control was the first thing we checked and it wasn’t linked. After searching other forums, I found lists with the same issue in other models. Not the ideal solution but if you set the seat to the middle setting, it doesn’t turn off and it gets hotter then the high setting.

How hot does an ass need to be? Lol

I find the settingsto be just fine and never want to keep the seat heated for long periods of time anyway (in ANY car)

yes, I had it as well, but sometimes more, sometimes less time. what I do not understand is why the right seat also turns off while not being used.. (not orange light at all) might be coupled with the left one. shutting down the car and re ignitition they work again fine. I wonder if there is a pb or if normal.

Another question, on my previous CX-3 the seats would stay on if I turned them on and did the remote start or even just re turned on the car. The CX-30 does not do that? Amy ideas?

Car is 6 months old. Heated seats worked fine until today. Couldn't get the usual 3 lights on either driver's or passenger's side. Played with linking and unlinking with climate control - neither made a difference. Turned car off, then on and the switch lit up, then as fast went dark. Nothing brought it back. Turned car off and on again and same thing. This has been a known Mazda problem, apparently from what I read elsewhere. Boggles the mind that they are happy to sell cars with this defect and unwilling/unable to make good on their product.

I literally had the same issue twice already had to turn the car completely off and let it sit for a few minutes and turn back on. And there is no way my seats were overheated as then we're not being used prior and I of course as well checked the climate control settings. This happens for both seats not just the driver that I couldn't use the switch for.

I wonder if a overall reset of car settings would fix it. That clearly sounds like a bug if you can't get the 3 lights on.
