SOURCE: 2003 buick lesabre heated seats wont work

I had this problem, but only on the driver's side (with leather seats). Sometimes the switch would come on, but I could not get it to go back off (and the seat would not heat).

I ended up removing the drivers front seat cover (only the bottom part), folding it back from the driver's door to the middle of the car. You also have to unplug the wiring harness underneath the seat. I found a black spot burned in the foam. This is where a wire had broken. I carefully pulled the wire together, then soldered it. I put everything back together, and it has been working ever since (about 6 months - and getting lots of use in the middle of the winter).

I think the only way to replace the heated seat wires is to replace the whole seat cover. I was glad I could fix mine by soldering it.

I'd have them checked first to determine if it is actually the shocks, or possibly just a loose or cracked line, which should be a pretty inexpensive fix. If it turns out to be shocks, weigh it out then.

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.

SOURCE: Heated Seats

I had the same problem on my 04 LeSabre. To check to see whether it was the element or the switch, I unplugged both seats and ran jumper wires to make left switch control the right element. The switch and element worked properly. Then I ran jumper wires to make right switch control the left element. The problem was the same, so it was the element was bad.

I had my element replaced at the dealership, since I didn't want to wreck my leather seats. It cost over $400 (about $150 for the element). I guess it just tucks next to the old element - the old element stays in place.

SOURCE: 2001 Buick lesabre gas guage not working, heated seats not workin

I have a 2001 and just replaced the fuel pump assembly in the tank because the fuel gauge didn't work or worked irratic. After talking to the partsman it sounded like this was common. The contact for the sensor wears away and looses contact. You will see that the new fuel pump module has different type of metal wiper contact. As for the heated seats, I have an issue with driver side also and haven't had a chance to look into it yet.

2003 buick lesabre heated seats are not working


Best guess is a bad fuse. It's also the cheapest easiest fix which is what my dad taught me. Basically, when hear hoof beats, think horses not zebras. A Chilton/Haynes repair manual will provide a fuse panel map etc.

How do I fix the drivers side front seat heater on a 2000 Buick Lesabre LTD? It appears to be the heating unit and not the switch.


Hello: It would be best to replace it, We fixed (per GM Instructions) but they didn't stay fixed so that's why I recommend replacing it. To replace it you have to remove the outer cover on the seat cushion. Bottom.

Drivers heated seat won' work


Probably a fuse!
Under the dash on the drivers side or under the hood.
New cars have them labeled right at the fuses not in the manual!
Hope this is helpful.

Good Luck!
