Sorry for multiple edits on this - I am trying to figure this out.

Last week I took delivery of my BB+BB. On the B&P tool, it says the steering wheel is heated. However, I don’t see any way to turn it on. I am hoping I am just blind and someone with BB+BB can show me how to turn it on...but I am thinking that I took delivery of a BB+BB without that feature (and still paid the $1595).

This button (circled in red) should be the one that turns on heated steering wheel. Do you not have it?

I don't think the heated feature is available on BB. If you compare the models, you see it is N/A for Base & BB. You can get a leather wrapped one, but not heated. It looks like the B&P option is worded incorrectly. If you look at the details of the BB Package details, it doesn't say heated.

Any one else with OCD that is driven crazy by the heated steering wheel being on the passenger side of the row instead of in the blank space between the driver's heated seat & - fan button!?!?! My head is going to pop, why did they do that!?!?! :angry:🤦‍♂️

Not positive, but I think the heated steering wheel button ended up there because this HVAC control was initially designed by Ford of Europe for the Kuga, where they usually think in Right Hand Drive.

Edit: The blank button is used for the electric windshield in other markets.

Here’s shot of B&P tool, mentioning it when you add the BB package to the BB trim.

I don’t! But it looks like you are a trim above BB since you have dual climate.

That's not mine. it's a stock photo. I don't own a Bronco yet. But it will be BL+BL when I do get one.
I should have paid more attn to your post. I always thought BB+BB does not get the heated steering wheel. So there seems to be some errors with Ford literature....

Appears that way....I love my BB, but I am not exactly happy at the moment.

Well at least it has a button. Our Explorer only can be turned on and off from the touchscreen.
Can you say where in the menu options it is? I have also getting a BB + BB so I am curious as well.

You could always keep a pair of these in your vehicle.

Option 2 if you do have heated seats. Drive with one hand on the wheel and one hand on the seat. Alternate as needed

I *could*.....but I paid $1600 thinking I wouldn’t have to based on the B&P 🤷🏻‍♂️

Frustrating but oh well.

I understand, there are many discrepancies on what is included on B+P.

If it makes you feel better the 1,600 paid for: power driver’s seat, heated front seats, power moonroof, reverse sensing system, leather steering wheel, and wireless charging pad. I know you thought you would get both but if you could only have one, heated seats warm you up much better and faster than the steering wheel
