Question about 2004 Buick LeSabre

2 Answers

Heated Seats The heated seat on the driver's side does not work. What is the solution for fixing this? Thanks. I have a 2004 Buick LeSabre and the heated seat button on the driver's side states Hi and will not go down to low, yet the driver's seat does not heat up. You can not turn the button off unless you turn the car off.

    I have the same problem as Guest that posted on May 4, 2009 ( heated seat on the driver's side does not work. (I have a 2004 Buick LeSabre and the heated seat button on the driver's side states Hi and will not go down to low, yet the driver's seat does not heat up) but mine is a 2003. Does anyone know if the "heating element" is the correct answer and do you need to remove the door to fix it?

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.

The heating element is bad and the switch probably also bad

FRONT HEATED SEATS


you need to check the resistance in each of the heated seat elements in the seat. There's a two wire connector under the back of each front seat. The connector should be green. disconnect it and measure the resistance along the circuit going into the seat. if it isnt .1 - .3 ohms, replace the appropriate heated seat element

2001 Buick lesabre gas guage not working, heated seats not workin


I have a 2001 and just replaced the fuel pump assembly in the tank because the fuel gauge didn't work or worked irratic. After talking to the partsman it sounded like this was common. The contact for the sensor wears away and looses contact. You will see that the new fuel pump module has different type of metal wiper contact. As for the heated seats, I have an issue with driver side also and haven't had a chance to look into it yet.

2003 buick lesabre heated seats wont work


I had this problem, but only on the driver's side (with leather seats). Sometimes the switch would come on, but I could not get it to go back off (and the seat would not heat).

I ended up removing the drivers front seat cover (only the bottom part), folding it back from the driver's door to the middle of the car. You also have to unplug the wiring harness underneath the seat. I found a black spot burned in the foam. This is where a wire had broken. I carefully pulled the wire together, then soldered it. I put everything back together, and it has been working ever since (about 6 months - and getting lots of use in the middle of the winter).

I think the only way to replace the heated seat wires is to replace the whole seat cover. I was glad I could fix mine by soldering it.

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!

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.
