One of the seat heating elements is shorted, that is why the hot breaker.

    U have to remove the seat cover, this is best left to a trim shop, there are all kinds of hog rings (that is what upholstery retainers are called) that retain the seat cover, unless u have done this before it is a bear, if not nearly imposs for the novice.

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

2004 liberty power seat don't work can't find any fuse in owner's manual that's label any way related to the power seats


The seats are not fused they are on a circuit breaker. In the dash fuse block located on the end of the dash on the drivers side you should be able to see 2 metalic looking "fuses". Those are the circuit breakers. Circuit breaker 1 is for the power seat. You can try swapping them and see if the seat works. If it still doesn't work than you will need to check for power and ground at the seat.

You should be able to find a connector under the seat that has a red with light blue wire and a black with white wire. The red with light blue should have power all the time. The black with white is the ground.

Let me know what you find or if you have additional questions.

My 2004 gmc envoy seat heaters do not work. There is no power to the switches as neither driver or passenger lights come on when buttons are pushed. What could the problem be. I could not identify the fuse...


Check Fuse #8 in the rear underseat fuse box, this fuse is also used for the power seats. The problem could also be the heater control module (located under driver's seat), a broken wire in the harness or loose connector under the seat. If it is not the fuse, then you will have to remove the driver's seat to check things out.

My power seat stopped working in my 2003 Yukon XL. The heated seats stopped working as well.


Try this remove the ckt breaker for the power seats the ckt breaker is located in the fuse box inside down by the drivers left foot. leave breaker out for about 10 seconds then reinstall it and see if the seat starts moving. If it does there is a reprogram for this and needs to be done by a dealer or someone who has access to be able to reprogram your vech.
several things could cause your heated seats to not work. If the seat and heated seat seat stopped at the same time could be the reprogram could fix it. If the heated seat quit working at a differant time it could be the seat heater element. get a schematic of the heated seat and ohm the wires for the element. If either element tests open then the element will need to be replaced. You might as well replace both of them at the same time since the seat covers have to come off to replace the seat heaters.(back and bottom ) If one element is bad then both heaters quit working.

I have a 2005 gmc envoy and the driver seat gets hot


There may be a stuck relay Stuck in the "On" position. A relay is a remote switch that does the heavier work of a smaller or more delicate switch. It is probably under the seat but if you have "memory" seats that move the power seats back and forth it is probably the control box causing the problem. It has relays inside it.

Seat Belts/Front Seats


seats use heavy corrent & use relays instead of fuses. check relays in fuse panel. see chart on cover or owner manual for location.

Also, this is for 96 villager seats.

Circuit Protection
Power is supplied to the seat motors through the 30A POWER WINDOW fuse. The fuse is located in the LH engine compartment fuse junction panel and is hot at all times. The circuit breaker is behind the interior fuse junction panel and prevents current overload and component damage.
