    Mine does the same thing

  • schill773 Jan 16, 2009

    ours started with the passenger seat a year ago, then the driver's side a few months ago. No cuts in the seat, so I suppose that means broken wires in the seat itself could be ruled out?

    Not sure, but with leather seats....it's pretty darned cold in the morning!

    I have the same problem with my drivers side front seat .... the heater switch between seats on the armrest console only blinks and no heat. I have an SLT with the leather package. What is the fix and is it something that can be easily self-performed?

The heater element for the seat is broken or damaged....It will need to be replaced....The blinking light lets you know there is a problem and does not let power flow to the element. This is for safety reasons to prevent short out or even fire.

I had this problem on my 2001 Durango - leather seats - about 4 years ago. I had it checked out when I was in for routine maintenance. All I found out was that the dealer's only solution was to change out the seat (for $700). Yes - those leather seats are (still) cold in the winter!

Heated seats and cruise don't work


Jeep WJ !
you only have 2 choices
buy the fsm, or find it here. below or use alldata.com , it's all there.
or check all fuses.

each fuse has many loads. so test them all or read the FSM..
all cars. made.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

lets see what is there. fuse 23 blown kills cruise. and brake lamps dead. or PCM in limphome and that can kill cruise,
is CEL out running? if not , CRUISE can be suspended for GOOD reasons, (safety) and more on newer cars...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
now seats. not the power seat motors. but heaters.
both sides, dead, bottom and back side?
both sides, have a switch, that the BCM watches.
the BCM controls the seat heat.
above 105F ambient this system shuts down.
in the jeep dealer he connects the DRB and sees whats wrong fast.
if the switch LED are dead key on, the fuse is blown.
are yours? dead? (page 8g-5 , fsm)"heated systems"
if the fuses are good, and the lamp glows, at seat it will take
a dealer DRB tool to find true cause or all day with an ohm meter
per above heated systems pages.

here is how seat heat works, it not like a 1995 car.
the BCM watches that seat switch
it sees (monitors) what you do , then sends (by digital COMMAND via PCI bus to) SM.
power (12vdc) to the heater with the "SEAT MODULE"doing the heavy lifting (drivers)
THE SM drives the seat.
black org. wire to diver back heater. and white to bottom heater
so ill assume the SM lost power, (wild guess)
i can not find the fuse that runs SM module.
but if the LED is out, then the fuse is blown and gee, that is easy to find, just looking.
i dont have a searchable FSM, to scan for SM fuse.

Where are relays for heated seats in 2004 monte carlo ss


Hi jkelley, I'm glad to help!

Usually in most cases when the heated seats quit working its the heated seat element that you sit on under the padding. Here's what I want you to do: Turn the key on then push the heated seat on button and see if it lights up. This is a quick test but not always an accurate test because the switch could still be working but the LED Light could be bad. BUT, in most cases this is a good test. If it lights up then its safe to say that its mostly likely the ELEMENT that's bad. Most of the time if you'll raise the seat cover you'll see that the element is burnt. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.

Passenger seat won't heat


Hi my name is Allen!

The most probable cause for your problem is the heating grid that is mounted on the set for heating it, it is under the seat cover, the light will act weird because it is not completing the circuit. Raise the seat cover and visually look at it, it should be burnt.

For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!

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.

Driver Heated Seat 03 Suburban


The most likely failure point is the driver heated seat elements. They probably have excessive resistance and once they warm up a little they short out the module and it defaults to not working. I would recommend replacing both upper and lower driver seat elements.
