With the cold weather setting in, the PTC heater has become apparent. Heat right away on those cold morning starts.

is this PTC something that standard on the Venue? I have the 2021 SE model, I've noticed with the weather dropping down in the lower 40's that when I start my Venue up in the non-heated garage that after about 10 mins or so its still blowing cold out of the vents and the temp gauge hasn't move up any, Once I start to drive it warms up really quick

I figured it was standard but I can't say for sure. Check in the engine compartment fuse box. Look for a 50 amp fuse marked PTC HEATER. If the fuse is there, I would think you have the electric heater and perhaps it's faulty. Check with your dealer to confirm.

I don't think the PTC heater is available on the US models. The Canadian spec sheet explicitly lists "Passive temperature control heater" as standard across all trim levels, but I can't find any mention of it on the US site.


So you lucky Canadians get all the good stuff: The heater, the manual transmission, and the sport grill.

My first thought was "passive temperature control" means manual controls vs Automatic climate control...but...I could be wrong.
Thanks for the shop manual link. Pretty handy to have.
Page 47 of section 16 - in the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning pdf shows the PTC heater as #4 on the parts blowup diagram.
Page 58 details PTC heater removal.
So, the answer remains clear as mud. I think, if the fuse is there the heater is there.

Thanks a lot for the Heads up on what to look for, I took a look and there is no 50amp fuse there, plus there are no wires going to that spot under the fuse box..Im guessing at this point the 2021 SE model does not come equipped with it :(

there is no way my car could blow warm air so fast without this thing. Mine has got to have one and it鈥檚 a us model.

That would seem to be the case although I found this on a Hyundai parts site. One of the selections is weather type so it seems they are built for the climate in the area where they are sold. I'm guessing a SE model sold in a warmer area doesn't get the PTC heater while a SE built for colder climates gets one.

Today with heavy wiper use, I noticed that the intermittent wiper rotary switch on the stalk has a front and rear. The switch goes from the front to the back, so it's easier to rotate either way. Pretty cool. I never saw that level of detail before in such minute features.

I had a bunch of stuff in the back cargo area that I needed to make disappear fast for a trip to Sam's Club. I lifted up the floor cover and made it all disappear under there. I have it in the top position so the floor is flat when I fold down the rear seats. That leaves a lot of space. I put a bag of jumper cables, a small air compressor, some tarps, paper towels, potable water, and more under there.

I do that too; keep all my gnarly crap under the floor cover, which I keep in the higher position. Keeps the cargo area nice and tidy, with all the nitty gritty stuff stashed in the "junk drawer" underneath. All cars should have this feature!

I've been hanging up my jacket (or sports coat) or uniform behind the front driver's seat. The hook they provided is too small for a modern plastic hanger, but you can just pull the grab handle down and hang it on there. Works great!

Another feature that I just found today. I was waiting for my wife at a walmart parking lot with the gear on Neutral, parking brake engage, AC on, and engine running (of course) and I saw this: the backup camera was on with the message "Check surroundings for your safety". Does the Venue know that I'm in a bad neighborhood? Was it trying to tell me to get ready with my Glock?
