Likely, the heating element in the seat has failed. The reason is simply that the drivers seat is in use more than any other seat in the vehicle. You can check continuity of the element with an ohmeter across the seat side of the heater connector. Check for power at the harness side with a volt meter. If there is power but no continuity, heater element has failed. Personally, I'd probably just live with it but you can either attempt to install a new heater element or if you can find a similar seat in a salvage yard, just buy it and put it in! (whole seat probably costs less than the element!!!

Power seats work, lights come on for the heated seats, but the seats do not heat


My jeep has the same problem. SO i looked on the recall page and just found out that there was a recall on the 2002 jeep G.C. heat seats, they can over heat and eventually just stop working. Just go on the site and print of the page, take it into a chrysler dealership and they will fix it for free!!!

Heated seats do not work


First off, I would contact your local Jeep dealer and have them run your VIN # to check for any recalls. The 1999-2004 Grand Cherokees had a recall on the seat heaters. If your vehicle doesn't fall into the VIN # range then either your seat heater switch has gone out, or you have a broken element in the seat heater. I have replaced more seat heaters than switchsm the elements heat up and break. Hope this helps out.

Best of luck

My 2002 grand jeep cherokee is blowing out hot air on passenger side and cold air on driver side can u help also the heated seat on driver side has stopped working is this linked


Thats your blend air door. . .I had the same thing with my 02 Grand Cherokee and I think ALOT of other people have as well. I took it to the dealer and ended up costing right around $800, because they have to pull the dash apart to get to the blend air door.

Heater seats dont work but light comes on.


Ok it is obvious since the light is coming on you are getting power to the switch. It could be a heated seat relay. Im fairly sure jeeps use a relay after the switch that is where I would start. Check and see if the Heated seat relay, and fuse are good

Heated seats are not working but light is on


Sounds like the same problem I had. I brought it to the Jeep dealer and they told me that the heating element in the seat stopped working. They told me that the only way to repair was to take the seat apart and replace the heating element in the seat. Of course they will charge you the standard $80 to tell you this. and then quote you $500 plus to repair. I can't even remember how much, I have decided it was not worth it.
