My heated seats cause burns to my low back even on low setting. If I have been out in rain or workout and sweat after driving for 30+ min with seat heater on low I got burns to my lower back. The first time I had the heaters on high but have now made sure to turn to low setting no matter what

Have you read this caveat in the owners manual:
"If temperature change or pain to the skin cannot be felt, the seat heater may cause burns. To reduce the risk of burns, use care when using the seat heater, especially for long periods of time. Do not place anything on the seat that insulates against heat, such as a blanket, cushion, cover, or similar item. This may cause the seat heater to overheat. An overheated seat heater may cause a burn or may damage the seat."

The seat heater shouldn't be used as a therapeutic heating pad!
