check the fuse on the panel, the fuse panel are located in the driver side right by the panel,and check the wires under the seat.

SOURCE: Heated seat
It is the heatling element, stock elements have a single wire snaked through the element and when the circuit breaks it is done, aftermarket elements have a wired grid that if one area fails it still works, they also spread a more even heat.

It can be done, but for the cost of a new heating element, it is worth the purchase. The replacement for my 2001 I think was ~ 40.00 ( online, plus shipping costs ) for the bottom cushion heating element.
You can take the same amount of work to remove the seat cushion, remove the cover, and try soldering the broken elements ( usually the thigh area in the front ), but you have a used element that is patched. The way I have seen it done, is actually using wire to close the circuit again, not create a new element section.
The seat bottom work is a bit much ( to make sure the cover is on straight and no creases ) to spend the time patching vs. replacing what is a fairly cheap part.
You can try Tasca and Southwest ford parts online for the current element pricing.
Depending on the shape of the cover and cushion itself, you might consider replacing those ( or the cushion ) as long as you have it apart, but this is getting a bit expensive ( would be ~ 200.00 for all 3 new ).
I did the cushion at the same time, and it made the world of difference to the feel of the seat, just like the day it came out of the factory.

Might want to check the driver's side door sill for a splice that is corroded.
In the SCab, I have seen this closer to the driver's side kick panel, where the hood release is at ( still in the door sill ), on the SuperCrew, I have seen this splice at the back, where the wires turn up the C-pillar.
Here are some pictures from other people that had this problem.
The front, the wire with the bad splice was reported to be a blue w/ White stripe wire.
When it is found in the back, it is a violet wire
If you check the fuses for those items, you will find the fuses are fine, but when you check the switch for the item, there is no power.
It will take some time, but checking for a broken splice, that is not obvious, but the chance is high you will find one in the sea of wires in the door sill.

if you have a DVOM, set the dial to A/C and check the wire (backprobe if you can) to see if its getting power, (if you get power the heating element is most likely bad) if you dont get any power, trace the wire to wherever its connected to, and set your DVOM to Ohms, and see if there is a high or low resistance between the beginning and the end of the wire. if theres a high resistance that means broken wire, if low then there could be something wrong with the switch that turns the seat on, (probably best to go to the dealership for that item)
Hope this helps!
