this is a common problem if you use the seat heater alot.one or both of the seat heater elements will have burned up or broken.where i live it is very cold most of the time and i have replaced hundreds of the seat heater elements.it is rare for it not to be one or both of the elements.

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.

Most likely a broken wire or plug under the seat, get a flashlight and have a look, the heavy duty wires will be the heater the others the airbag/seatbelt sensors. You might find a bendy. weak section where the copper has flexed and parted.

SOURCE: heating element in seat ford f150

It can be done, but for the cost of a new heating element, it is worth the purchase. The replacement for my 2001 I think was ~ 40.00 ( online, plus shipping costs ) for the bottom cushion heating element.

You can take the same amount of work to remove the seat cushion, remove the cover, and try soldering the broken elements ( usually the thigh area in the front ), but you have a used element that is patched. The way I have seen it done, is actually using wire to close the circuit again, not create a new element section.
The seat bottom work is a bit much ( to make sure the cover is on straight and no creases ) to spend the time patching vs. replacing what is a fairly cheap part.
You can try Tasca and Southwest ford parts online for the current element pricing.
Depending on the shape of the cover and cushion itself, you might consider replacing those ( or the cushion ) as long as you have it apart, but this is getting a bit expensive ( would be ~ 200.00 for all 3 new ).
I did the cushion at the same time, and it made the world of difference to the feel of the seat, just like the day it came out of the factory.

either reach for it or attempt to undo all 4 bolts. The bolts have a high chance of snapping in two so be prepared to replace them with new ones and even a drill to drill out the old ones and possible re-tap them.

Where is the fuse for the heated seats in a 2007 jeep grand cherokee laredo?


Remove the ignition key. Unplug the HSM (heated seat module). It is under the passenger seat. You can easily accomplish this with the seat all the way back. Wait a few seconds they plug it back in. Start the engine. Turn the seats on. If the indicator lights come on for 2 seconds and then go out, further diagnostics is required. Hopefully they'll stay on and the seats will be working fine.

Thanks,
Ron

How can I find out what has gone wrong with my headed seat? On/off switch lights, but seat doesn't get warm. This first began with the seat getting too warms at times, now nothing. Thank you in...


The most common problem with these heated seats and all heated seats is the actual heater grid in the seat... it is basically like a heating pad that you have in your house except thinner and smaller, these grids usually will shot out causing the syptom that you stated the seat will seem to get really hot and then just quit working all together if you disconnect the connector for the heater grid and it has power and ground than the grid is bad the connector is usually a two pin connector under the seat.... What ever you do do not unplug any Yellow connectors as they are for the air bag system... If you need more information let me know i will be happy to help

Air bag light stays on


I had the same issue wit my 2006 Hyunda Santa Fe air bag light staying on. I had the system scanned and it was the passenger bottom seat. It has sensors in the padding that monitor the weight on the seat. If it is over 40-60 pounds then in case of an accident the air bag will deploy. This is to protect children in case they are setting in the front seat. However if the wire sensors over time break and the circuit is open then the air bag light will stay on. The bottom seat is around $300 dollars not counting labor to replace.

Buy 2002 Santa Fe Nov 16, couldn't unlock doors to


i had a problem not unlike this in my santa fe 1.9td uk spec.
my car had been sitting for a few months and when i returned to drive it again the same problem came to light.
i also rep[lsaced the key fob.
it could be one of two things.
firstly the systen might neen re-set. if you disconnect the battery for 2 hours then attach ti again it might work.
if this fails it might be the actuator in one of the doors. if it is faulty then it only semi closes the lock, but it then thinks that has to lock again. and locks the door.
hope this helps.

Hyundai santa fe 2004 how can i install two front seat,


2 bolts in each of the seats' floor rails... total of 8. Wire harness connectors may not be the same power seat control harness, seat heaters, etc. Research of connectors shows floor harness connectors are identical between 04 & 05. However, optional features like seat warmers in the wire harness of the 05 model may not exist in the other and vise versa.

There is a sensor under the seat cushion that is basically a weight sensor, if a certain weight is not sensed then the airbag is turned off, it must be defective.
