Scan for faults probably a back up sensor not working, the scan will point to which one(s) check for corroded wire harness left rear side of box near the bumper. Heated seats if the control button lights up while running then go off probably a grid burnt out in the seat cushion or the seat back if no lights then it points to control or wiring,may set a fault for this also.
if your vehicle came with a heated seat option then ya it should be plug & play if the seats are from a different vehicle it might not work do your research before making the purchase on those seats />
This is something I have experienced and may or may not be your problem. The wiring harness under the seat is cut and exposed from moving the seat back and forth. It is now hitting ground and blew the fuse. You have to find the bare wire and wrap it with electrical tape, then replace the blown fuse. Most of the time, I had to remove the seat to find it. If you change the fuse without wrapping the wire, the first time you move the seat, the fuse will blow.
The last time I checked one of these, the wiring harness for everything you just described is underneath the seat. You'll have to move the seat all the way forward or back to get to the harnesses to reconnect them.
I hope this helps! :) Let me know if you need any further assistance in this matter.
It sounds to me like what your asking is where do you find the wiring harness for the heated seats.
Remove the front seat, and look under the carpet where there is a cut out, there should be a wirting harness for the heated seats, as well as a wiring harness for the seatbelt alarm switch.
See if the wiring harness they sent you, will fit that one supplied in the truck, if it does then you are in business my friend.
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 put new cars to gether an if it doesnt hav the acessories it wont have the harness u need,,maybe sumtymes they do but if ucan run aseperate switch itll work use the right amp rated wire or ull have more heat (fire)?thats about 12feet of wire they can save they will save if possible(wire harness) too bad i cant fix my own car thou,,,lol..
If the fuse isn't blown, it may be a broken heating element or a disconnected harness. Look under the seat and take a look at the wire harnesses - are they all plugged in? Jiggle or push on them a bit (do NOT do this to any yellow connectors under there though - yellow connectors are for airbags and the static electricity in your body can blow them). If they're all OK, and that doesn't work, and no wires are broken in the connectors, you may have a damaged heater. Has anyone ever knelt on the seat to reach across and get something? That kind of excess pressure can easily damage the heating element.
