Drivers heated seat won' work

The drivers side heated seat on my 2004 Buick Lesabre Limited quit working. The light on the seat heater button does not come on. Is there a fuse for this and if so where is it? If not a fuse is there a fix short of replacing the seat?

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!

How do I fix the drivers side front seat heater on a 2000 Buick Lesabre LTD? It appears to be the heating unit and not the switch.

Hello: It would be best to replace it, We fixed (per GM Instructions) but they didn't stay fixed so that's why I recommend replacing it. To replace it you have to remove the outer cover on the seat cushion. Bottom.

Driver heated seat not working

Check you connections both under the seat and at the switch. Many times corrosion will occur due to the amount of amperage that goes through the circuit.

Heated Seats

I had the same problem on my 04 LeSabre. To check to see whether it was the element or the switch, I unplugged both seats and ran jumper wires to make left switch control the right element. The switch and element worked properly. Then I ran jumper wires to make right switch control the left element. The problem was the same, so it was the element was bad.

I had my element replaced at the dealership, since I didn't want to wreck my leather seats. It cost over $400 (about $150 for the element). I guess it just tucks next to the old element - the old element stays in place.

Seat Heater won't work

I have found that is the grid fails the light will not light, it is not just a switch, it also has a timer circuit in it, when the grid burns out it will in most cases short out, this destroys the switch module, so both will have to be replaced to correct your problem. I base this diagnosis on 30 years of new car dealer work as a technician.

Buick Lesabre Heated Seats not working

The problem is most likely caused by shorted heating grids in the seat cushion itself, kind of like the heating element in an electric blanket, very expensive to replace.
