The effectiveness of the ventilated seat is provided by a ventilation device installed inside the seat itself. The air circulation promotes the evacuation of humidity in the targeted areas on days when the sun is at its hottest. This ventilation is produced by the action of fans fixed in the structure of the seat of your car. You therefore have the power, thanks to the different intensity levels, to be 100% comfortable on the hottest days.

Press the ventilated seat symbol button on the climate controls or the touchscreen to cycle through the various ventilation settings on Ford F-150. More indicator lights indicate higher fan speeds.

Tip to increase seat cooling: When you switch the climate control fan speed and the ventilated seats to their maximum settings, the ventilated seats provide increased cooling.

Note: If the engine falls below 350 RPM while the ventilated seats are on, the feature turns itself off unless the vehicle is in Auto-Start-Stop mode. You may need to reactivate the ventilated seats.

The ventilated seats may remain on after you remote start your vehicle, based on your remote start settings. The ventilated seats may also turn on when you start your vehicle if they were on when you switched your vehicle off.
