Chevy Silverado Seat Heater not working

I have a 2003 C. Silverado 1500 HD with heated seats. The back warmer works but the seat warmer does not. The light for the seat warmer comes on but after a short period of time it cuts out without warming the seat. It appears that the seat would have a cut out if there is a short in it. How would I go about trouble shooting this one?

    the heaters in the seat and the back are not working in my '03 silverado LT. I hear a "click" when I try it and the lights go on for a second but that's it. drivers side only, the rider's side is fine.

The most likely cause is the seat heater elements, they either have excessive resistance or are open - id recommended replacing both driver side element - upper and lower

SOURCE: car seat warmer

You should be able to move the seat forward to get to the wiring harness. The way the system works is power comes from heated seat module to the lower cushion on the WH/BU wire goes thru the element in the cushion and then comes out on the BU/WH wire and then goes thru the element in the seat back then out on WH/RD wire back to module. If it has an open circuit then no heat from either on cushion or seat back. You can check them with an ohm meter. Usually it is the element in the cushion that goes bad. You can get the element seperately but cover has to be removed to replace it.

Hi I'm not to clued up on 2004 silverado 1500 LT crew cab, obviously you'll check the fuse box & even replace the fuse wouldn't hurt giving it a try. Also try checking the electric motor for the seat. No cables lose or broken? Nothing jamming the seat? Is there any sound at all coming from the area where all the electrics are under the seat? Can you hear a motor straining?Just a few thoughts. Good luck

SOURCE: Silveraldo seat heater comes on

Look under the seat. If you have power seats the wire for that will run right to the seat switch. The seat heat wire will run from the on/off switch to the heater element in the seat. It sounds like you need a new heater switch.
I hope this helps.

My heated seats in my 2003 chevy silverado 2500 hd turn on to high automatically when i start the truck. how do i fix this or atleast unhook them untill winter?


well you can't just pull the plug or unhook the seat from below,, the motor for adjusting the seat seems to be on the same circuit, unless your the only one who drives the vehicle, then you could yank the circuit breaker for the seats , what it sounds like to me with the heat issue is that you have a shorted element in the seat itself, and they are pretty lame as heaters go, Chevy sells a replacement which consists of a piece of tape with the element inside of it, and you have to remove the covers and weave this replacement through the seat,, Ive only done one, but you could see all the burn spots on it,

Heated, power seats not working


Check wiring under the seat. Frequent habit of pushing things under the seat such as flashlights and tools etc and moving the seat forward and back sometimes pulls wires or breaks them.

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.

2002 Chevy Impala driver's heated seat does not work


I would imagine that if you only felt the extreme heat in two specific spots on the seat, the element may have burned out and you basically have an open curcuit. According to the wiring scematic, the elements in the back rest and the seat itself are connected so neither work now. I've tried removing the leather from my seats to figure out if I can just replace the elements, but the elements are molded into the foam in the seat. Your only solution may be to replace the entire seat or to buy a ******** seat warmer. Most of these ******** heat warmers are rather cheaply made, though.
