ACTIVATING DRIVERS " SEAT HEATER" SWITCH BLOWS FUSE

I have a 2008 Veracruz Limited . Activating the drivers heated leather seat switch , results in the fuse blowing . Also when that occurs the cruise control RESUME function quits working .If there is a short in the heater pad--should I expect a replacement seat or can the pad be replaced and the leather reinstalled good as new ? The vehicle has 5000 miles on it .Thanks, Larry

This would Definately be a Short And, Yes you Can just replace the Pad. Could just be that the Wiring is in a Bind and needs to be Moved around. Seeing that it only has 5000 K on it, It should still be Under the Factory Warranty and they should repair this Free of Charge.

2002 Pontiac Bonneville. Both passenger and driver side heated seats are not working. Each failed at different times (months apart), and the fuses for each unit (16 for drv and 31 for psnger) are good....


I have a 2005 Bonneville and lost my driver seat heater. The typical problem is a broken wire or connection in the seat section of the seat. If you're lucky, it may be a simple break like mine was; under the seat.
I pulled my seat out to work on it. Here's a picture of my broken wire towards the rear:

Here is a heated seat TSB for cars built prior to 12/14/07

TSB 09-4-8
03/09/09
INOPERATIVE HEATED SEAT(S) - BUILT
BEFORE 12/14/2007

FORD:
2005-2007 Five Hundred, Freestyle
2008 Taurus X, Taurus

MERCURY:
2005-2007 Montego
2008 Sable

ISSUE
Some 2005-2007 Freestyle, Five Hundred, Montego and 2008 Taurus, Sable and Taurus X vehicles built before 12/14/2007 may exhibit an inoperative heated seat(s). This concern may be caused by an intermittent open element in the heated seat mat.

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
The heated seat system is controlled by the heated seat module located underneath the front passenger seat cushion. The heated seat switches are part of the heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) module but the heated seat system operates independently from the climate control system. The heated seat module regulates seat temperature by monitoring resistance of a thermistor type thermostat located in the cushion heater mat. The heated seat module is designed to remain on, heating the seat and maintaining temperature until switched off. For vehicles built before 5/1/2006, the module will time-out and switch off after 10 minutes.

1. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 501-10 for pin point test on inoperative heated seat(s).
a. When testing the heater mats resistance and circuits for an intermittent open, technicians should sit in the seat while testing the circuit resistance, move the seat in multiple seating positions and apply pressure to several areas of the heated seat mat to ensure the mat element is not open intermittently.

2. Refer to WSM 501-10 for heated seat element replacement when an open electrical circuit has been identified.

Drivers seat heater will not switch on. New fuse installed.


the switch works the relay, the relay powers the heater, being a 12volt heating element, it's bound to have a good size wire going to it, make sure the wire feeding that relay is hot, it will be a larger inline fuse or a fusable link,it will come off a main power source,I.E. the starter or something like that, the small fuse you replaced is for the relay curcuit,good luck

I bought a used 2008 Hyundai veracruz GLS that doesn't have the power driver's seat. I looked under the seat and found wires. Is it possible to convert or replace the manual driver's seat to a power one?


Most harnesses are made with plugs for every option. You would need a seat, and to find the switch harness (if remote from seat.) You will also need to put a fuse or breaker into the fuse panel for that option. I'd also check to see if any relays are used for that as well (most scrapyards can tell you and also should have everything you need.

Heated leather seats will not heat up. Switch lights up and all fuses are okay. Is there a hiddedn relay I am not finding? Is there a quick way to determine if the problem is in the heating element under...


are you saying neither the heated seat cushion nor heated seated back on either seat works? But the light or lights does work?

Please rate as solved if this helps you. It took some time to dig all this stuff up. Please report progress.

Here's some info to start you off:

  • The heated seat is inoperative — seat does not heat but the heated seat switch illuminates when pressed
  • Circuitry.
  • Heated seat module.
  • Seat heater and temperature sensor.
  • Seat back heater.
  • Heated seat switch.

Drivers heated seat won' work


Probably a fuse!
Under the dash on the drivers side or under the hood.
New cars have them labeled right at the fuses not in the manual!
Hope this is helpful.

Good Luck!

Heated seat not working


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.
