DIC and Heated seat problem

I have a 2001 aurora and the DIC doesn't display anything (but the buttons work, since I can change between km & miles) and the heated seats don't work - push the button the light comes on briefly, then dies off.

Ideas? I also had the remote trunk, fuel door and homelink fail this morning, but I've not had a chance to check the fuses on that one.

    This is the exact same problem I'm having right now too. I'm going to try and access the fuse box under the rear seat and see if the fuse is blown, but other than that I don't know what to do either.

    Update - The fuse is fine in my ride. Seat still does the same thing as
    yours. Turns on for a brief moment, then turns off. I'd love to know
    some other cheap and easy ways to troubleshoot it.

    I just got the car so who knows - my other issue is the computer is off (completely dead) so I'm guessing the next step is to go to the dealer; it makes sense that the anti theft bits are tripped. Odd thing is I would have expected the dealer that sold me the car would have caught it...

    Hey..I'm using my mom's 2001 Aurora cuz I had foot surgery and can easily get in and out of the car. The trunk and fuel gauge on the driver's door are not working. Do I have to have a fuse replaced and where is the fuse for that located? Please help...I had to hop
    on one foot to pump gas yesterday and manually open the fuel gauge.

    I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue with heated seats that do the same thing. The Drivers seat turns on, then the light goes off. Occasionally it stays on and heats really fast, which is what it was doing prior to it dieing. It would get so hot so quickly it was actually extremely uncomfortable and would have you squirming in the seat.

    The passenger seat however still works fine and I have no complaints from anyone riding in that seat. My guess is that the heating pad has a short and overheated, probably needs replaced, but I by no means am an expert.

If anyone has worked under the hood or in the dash get your copy of what you paid and head to the dealer most dashes boards newer then 95-96 need dealer codes and scanner's to re boot if in safe (anti theft) bit if it starts check the fuses it may be in a seperate connector, your bcm (body control mod) is first to check those computer dashes are very sensative

How to reset change oil soon light

Oil Life Monitor Resetting (KD, KE)
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil and the engine oil filter - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 12 500 km (7,500 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the CHANGE OIL message may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 12 500 km (7,500 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.
The engine oil life monitor will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5 000 km (3,000 miles) or sooner if the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message is displayed.
Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed.
Resetting Procedure
Press the INFORMATION SKIP button on the DIC control panel in order to display the OIL LIFE LEFT message.
Press and hold the RESET NO button until the display shows 100% ENGINE OIL LIFE.

98 Aurora's heated seat not working

Check your fuses first. Then check to see if you have power to the box under seat. It should be about 3x3 and black I think. If you have power to the box change the box. To check use a test light. make sure the key is on and the button is pushed then probe the wires going to the box. Hope this helps you.

Tire pressure reset will not reset

The process for resetting your Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM) is below.
Good luck, let me know.

To reset (calibrate) the system:
1. Turn the ignition switch to RUN.
2. Press the GAGE INFO button on the DIC until
TIRE PRESSURE appears on the display.
3. Press and hold the DIC RESET button for about five
seconds. After five seconds, the display will show
RESET does not appear on the display after about
five seconds, see your dealer for service. After you
release the DIC RESET button, TIRE PRESSURE
NORMAL will appear on the display.
The system completes the calibration process during
driving. During the first 10 to 25 miles (15 to 40 km) of
driving, the system will not alert you if a tire is high or
low. After 25 to 100 miles (40 to 160 km), the
system will only alert you about pressure differences of
12 psi (85 kPa) or more. After about 100 miles (160 km)
of driving, the system will alert you if one tire is
10 psi (69 kPa) different from the other three tires.

2005 Buick LeSabre heated seat not working

The heated seats have relays that run them. Not quite sure where they are located but. That noise is the relay clicking on and off. They are actually pretty loud. Look for faulty connections to and from the relay and check battery power to both sides of the relay.

A common cause for the heated seats to not work is a burned heater element. There is an element under the seat cushion cover, and one under the seatback cover. If either has failed, both will not work.
