    ok. if its getting power to the button then check to see if power is going to the seat from the button.this can be done with a multimeter or a test light. if no power going out but power is coming in the probable cause is the switch.if you need help testing this circuit l can help you with that as well.

Check your fuses and relays first. if all good find where the wire comes up from the carpet to the seat and make sure the plug is together.

SOURCE: Heated seat

Could be that the wiring for the heater is broken, or that the heating element itself has been damaged. Has anyone knelt on the seat when reaching in to get something out of the car? Or has anyone stood on it (a child maybe)? Pressure like that can break the heaters and keep them from firing up.

SOURCE: Buick Lesabre Heated Seats not working

The problem is most likely caused by shorted heating grids in the seat cushion itself, kind of like the heating element in an electric blanket, very expensive to replace.

its not the module,,its more than likely the drivers side seat heater element,i would say the seatback element,remove the seat cover,just unlatch it under the seat from the rear of seat under it and then pull up its velcrod on,,and then youll see a little burn on the heater pad and thats your problem,then you need a new element,,,thats why theydont work,it causes a open in the system

2010 Lincoln MKS Heated Seat on driver's side stopped working (Light in button turns off on its' own)


The most common cause of this problem is that the drivers seat heater grid is open or burned out. That is based on 25 years as a Ford dealer technician.

2007 Equinox drivers seat will not heat...light goes off after a minute.


I finally got out my ohm meter and the circuit diagram and checked out all the wires. Turns out the problem was an open circuit in the drivers side seat heating pad. The connectors are fairly accessible under the seats. The circuit is rather involved since the control module is under the passenger seat and the inputs come from the switches on the dash through the climate control module!! What a complicated execution for heated seats!
But I was able to find some new replacement seats on Craigslist and picked one up for $100. It was pretty easy to replace with just the 2 bolts at the back, the wiring harness underneath and the shoulder belt clip. Now everything is working and I sold the old seat for $60. A ne $40 repair and 3 hours of diagnosis and swap work.

The drivers seat won't move and the heated seats won't work on both sides. Where is the fuse?


Check underneath the seat for an inline fuse. It is a glass type fuse in a fuse holder that you have to push and twist to get out.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Heat on drivers side but not on passengers side


Have to remove the seat & replace the blower


The dealers usually have seat people that come in
one day a week after the service bays close,like 5:30
to 8:30 at night


Could be a seat control module or other
neat little semi conductors hidding in the back of the seat


Need pro scan software to get enhanced codes

A repair shop may do seat work,would be cheaper

Here is a heated seat TSB for cars built prior to 12/14/07

INOPERATIVE HEATED SEAT(S) - BUILT
BEFORE 12/14/2007

FORD:
2005-2007 Five Hundred, Freestyle
2008 Taurus X, Taurus

MERCURY:
2005-2007 Montego
2008 Sable

ISSUE
Some 2005-2007 Freestyle, Five Hundred, Montego and 2008 Taurus, Sable and Taurus X vehicles built before 12/14/2007 may exhibit an inoperative heated seat(s). This concern may be caused by an intermittent open element in the heated seat mat.

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
The heated seat system is controlled by the heated seat module located underneath the front passenger seat cushion. The heated seat switches are part of the heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) module but the heated seat system operates independently from the climate control system. The heated seat module regulates seat temperature by monitoring resistance of a thermistor type thermostat located in the cushion heater mat. The heated seat module is designed to remain on, heating the seat and maintaining temperature until switched off. For vehicles built before 5/1/2006, the module will time-out and switch off after 10 minutes.

1. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 501-10 for pin point test on inoperative heated seat(s).
a. When testing the heater mats resistance and circuits for an intermittent open, technicians should sit in the seat while testing the circuit resistance, move the seat in multiple seating positions and apply pressure to several areas of the heated seat mat to ensure the mat element is not open intermittently.

2. Refer to WSM 501-10 for heated seat element replacement when an open electrical circuit has been identified.
