  • Q:

    Does it automatically shut off after __ minutes to protect from overheating and draining the battery?

      A:

      No, they do not have an automatic timer shut off. However they do have different heat levels, but have to be turned on and off manually.

    • A:

      The simple solution for automatic shutoff to protect the battery when the car isn't running would be to wire the power leg from the "switched" side of your fuse panel so that the heater would not receive power when the ignition key is in the off position.
