The leather seats will easily bolt right up, but you need to check and see if your car has the wiring harness for the power seats tucked under the carpet. Often, all cars have the proper harness,but not connected, and the fusebox has no fuse installed either, but it is a good thing to check before you start the project.

2004 chevy. Heated seats will not stay on.

See GM TSB 05-08-143-001, If you have Adjustable pedals, especially if they dont; work with the memeory buttons, but function with thier own buttons. Its the Brake Pedal Position Sensor is shorted and mesing up the seat module which controls the heaters too. My 05 Suburban had the same issue.

My driver seat on my 98 Toyota Camry keeps leaning back. It's not powered, its manual. I guess when I was leaning back to get my wallet out of my pants, I leaned back to hard and now it doesn't go back...

You have a broken seat frame.
You are going to have to have the seat removed form the car, the upholstry removed, and the broken metal frame re-welded. As to the costs, I would expect about $125-150 dollars.

2003 Suburban---Heated leather seat problem

there may be a software issue, there is a reprogram for seat heater issues. Bulletin 05-08-50-008 may pertain to that, a AC DELCO Shop or the dealer can ck that and see if this bulletin applies.

I have a 2003 chrysler town and country van. i was getting in the vehicle and realized i needed something from my wallet. i leaned back to get my wallet out and the back rest of the seat broke and fell...

You can get another one from the wrecking yard. Chrysler isn't the only company that makes cars that you can break the seat back on, but I also have one that i broke, so I bought a set used. I saved the broken drivers seat in case the electric motor goes out in my new one. Rick

Power seat does not retain adjustment

This is always a fun thing to fix. I have fixed a many of them, nothing like sitting in seat and over a couple days the next thing you know the seat is laying on the back seat. ok the fix is to get another one.......Not really, but if you have no patience and no tools then you will need to buy another one from a junk yard or a recycler as they like to be called. Anyways unplug seat from all connections and take seat out of car. use plyers and pull out the hog staples out of the leather in the crack of the eat and pull the seat leather cover back. you will find a worm gear that when controls are pressed it turns and pulls the back of the seat up and lays it down. well the cable is stretched. SO you will need to take the end off and take a small cut off tool and take a 1/4 inch off it and reatach the cable back and make sure it holds it tight and then it will work. always try seat by plugging it all back up before reataching seat back into car. if works and u have it ajusted then u need to taek hog staples and reatach the leather back the way it was, Might have to go buy the special tool and smae new hog clips from a shop that does cloth or leather. tool is like $ 20.00 and new clips are like $8.00 a box. Good luck. It does save $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

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.
