Default Steering wheel heating malfunction warning message

Howdy all. I had my heated steering wheel on my A4 on a drive home this evening and about 20 minutes into the drive, a warning message popped up briefly on the virtual cockpit saying "Steering wheel heating malfunction - see owner's manual" and then the heating turned off. I let the wheel cool down to the touch and then tried turning it back on, but no heat. The indicator message came on the VC saying the heating was turned on despite this.

I checked the manual but there seems to be no reference that I could find to this warning message in the steering wheel heating section. I am thinking a blown fuse but before I go exploring, I thought I'd post here first to see if it's a common problem or if there's an easy fix.

My dealer is an hour away so I'm trying to save the trip out as a last resort.

Used the heated steering today and it seemed to work with no warning messages - I've added it to my list of concerns to address with my dealer the next time the car's in for service. Will update this thread with any info I find out.

Never seen that issue even after a whole winter's worth of use. Definitely something to take up with dealer under warranty, not worth you trying to fiddle with it or waste time/money on parts.
