Some 2017-2019 Lincoln Continental vehicles may exhibit an inoperative heated steering wheel.

For vehicles equipped with adaptive steering, the steering effort control module (SECM) controls the heated steering wheel feature and is internal to the steering wheel. For vehicles not equipped with adaptive steering, the heated steering wheel module (HSWM) controls the heated feature and is separate from the steering wheel.

Using the OASIS tab, drop down > HVBoM > Features button or an appropriate Ford diagnostic scan tool, you can determine if the vehicle is equipped with adaptive steering.

Refer to workshop manual section 211-05.
