Yes the relay is on the left side of the fuse box it is about the size of a bottle cap and should be a blue or gray color it is a stocked part at most auto parts stores and a cheap about $10.00 two minute fix.

If your fuses are good, perhaps your heated seat switch is faulty. You can test the switch for connectivity using a meter to see if power is going through the switch when in the ON position. If the meter shows no power while in the ON position, replace the switch. If power is reaching the seat, then likely the heating element itself within the seat is the culprit.
If other functions such as window controls and power seat controls are normal, here are some possibilities; 1) Circuit Breaker #8 in rear fuse panel 2) Defective Driver Memory Seat Module (under driver's seat) 3) Break in data lines between Driver's Memory Seat Module and Drivers Door Module 4) Fuse 23 & 6 in rear fuse panel
Mine did that forever, but started working after the instrument cluster was replaced. It started to show 100 mph in a parking lot. Dealer replaced it for free, and now every little quirk seems to have disappeared, including the heated seats. They are very nice lately. Damn cold here.
