2015 Chrysler Town & Country - Seat heat switch

My 2015 Chrysler Town & Country has heated seats. By pressing the switch, I can choose heated seat and back, or just seat. Why wouldn’t Chrysler have gone one step further and installed a switch that offered back-only heat as well??

Because the heated seat is for comfort, not to treat a bad back.

Because the Chrysler finance department won the argument over the design ergonomics staff.

Probably not the steel cage match. That is reserved for really important things. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

That’s an extra cost upgrade for the next model year.

It wouldn’t be hard for this to be installed by someone who does electrical/audio work on vehicles. It might mean some aftermarket switch(es) but is quite doable.
