My understanding is: no, not without doing some custom wiring. Which someone on here has performed (successfully.)

Would be nice if this were programmable e.g. configure just the driver's seat to come on versus all four. At least the heated steering wheel works (iirc.)

Unfortunately, I've found that the heated steering wheel does not kick in with autostart until you actually enter the car.

I added automatic turn on to the heated seats. My cost was about $40 and i can select auto turn on of heated or cooled seats. It is a little tricky to do and I discussed the details in another thread.

Thanks everyone. That sheds alot of light. Kinda defeats the purpose to not allow them on. Ill talk to my local guy and see what he says

My Silverado truck has remote start and, depending on the outside temperature, it either preheats or precools both leather seats and starts the heater or AC operating. Kind of nice in Texas weather. When I get in and turn the key on, the seats go off. The heater and AC go back to the last setting. If I wish to keep the seats operating, I have to turn them back on manually.

Otherwise the truck always starts with the seats off and I prefer it that way.

That's one of my issues with the Genesis. I don't understand why the heated seats don't start with the last setting when you turn it on. I've had 5 or 6 cars with heated seats, including a Sonata and Santa Fe, and all of them kept the settings that were active when the car was turned off.
