Hi guys! I am enjoying my first summer with my '17 EcoBoost Premium. I recently noticed that when I engage the cooled seat on the driver side, warm/hot air blows from the front of the seat towards my legs. This may have been happening since I first got the car a few months ago, but I never noticed it because I was wearing long pants. Now that shorts season is upon us, it's bugging the hell out of me. This hot air doesn't blow out of the passenger seat.

Has anybody else experienced this issue? Is it normal or should I have the seats inspected since the car is still under warranty? I've searched around on the forum but could not find anything on this subject.

Also, I'm wondering if only the seat bottom is supposed to be cooled or the seat back as well, since I'm not feeling anything on my back.

Thanks in advance for your help!
Tom

Get it checked under warranty... It is not normal.
Only the seat base is cooled on my 2017 Premium Ecoboost.

Check the plug under passenger seat it sometimes shorts out but usually doesn’t work at all to much power on one ground wire factory defect. Put a new plug on mine works great for three months now

FYI, there was a guy on this site a couple of years back that was 3D printing replacement covers for the blowers on the cooled seats. His cover had two fittings to accept 3/4" corrugated tubing that you would run up to the front edge of the seat. The inlet air would come from the foot well where it was cooler making the cooled seats more effective than taking air from under the seat.

The folks that tried it were happy with the improvement. I purchased a set from him but have been two lazy to unbolt the seats to get under there to swap the covers.

I have not noticed this, however, I spend much of my time with the top down and would never feel anything on my legs anyway. I'm still not particularly thrilled with the performance of the system, which seems to barely cool the bottom and virtually do nothing on the seatback.

Well? Any answer on this?
I took the car to the service center and they compared it to two other Mustangs they had there (one belongs to the owner of the place); both have air blowing forward on the driver side. They said that there's nothing to do about it.

Interesting. I don't think my '17 has that issue. I hear the blowers in the seats, but so far, not blowing out the front.

9 and 11 months ago since the last replies on this thread, but I'll jump in anyway.
Just tonight after getting gas, my Wife said she hears a "noise" on her side of the car. Great! Trying to get a woman to describe a noise is like trying to get Stevie Wonder to describe a rainbow!🥴 I'm nearly deaf, so there's a lot of things I can't hear. Finally after me going through the alphabet of noise descriptions, she says "Lets switch sides and maybe you'll hear it. OK, I sit down in the passenger seat and right away my butt is vibrating like I'm sitting on a buzzer. I suspect it's the seat cooler fan , so I turn it off and the "noise" stops right away. I said, "You couldn't feel that vibrating in the seat"? She says no but she could only hear it. (Well I know what kind of a toy she's NOT getting for her Birthday:ROFLMAO:)
I took a look under there and it looks like the telephone company under there with all the cables and plugs! I'm sure the seat will need to come out to access the thing. Internet sales places say about $100 - $115 bucks. Hoping this is covered on the extended warranty.
