SOURCE: 2006 ford 500. heated seat-

Check fuse 22 in the fuse box under the hood. Then check fuse 19 in the fuse box inside the vehicle under the dash on the driver side. If those are good I would suspect an open in the seat circuit from the module to the seat cushion. This circuit has a signal return which tells the module that the seat is active or not. If the circuit is not complete it will shut off the seat and the light to avoid overheating of the seat and possible damage. good luck

SOURCE: Heated Drivers Seat Ford 500 2006 will not work.

It is usually one of two problems. Either the relay under the seat has failed or the heat element in the seat has failed.

If you are not electrically challenged, you can use a simple volt-ohm meter and check for continuity in the heat element. If you have continuity, the element is good, otherwise that's your problem.

If the heat element is good, you may want to take the good relay from under the passenger seat and put it on the driver's side to see if that fixes it. If so, then you have to get a new relay.

Last, but very unlikely, would be a bad switch.

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.

Trying to find which fuse is for the heated seats on a 2004 ford explorer sports trak


Heated Seats
This system allows the electrical heating of the front seats on passenger demand.
The components of the system are:
  • the seat heating elements located in the seat cushion and backrest.
  • the heated seat control switch, located on the seat side trim panel.
  • temperature sensors located in the seat cushion heating elements.
  • heated seat relay.
Do both front seat heaters not work ? Do you know how to test electrical circuits with voltmeter ?

2007 Equinox drivers seat will not heat...light goes off after a minute.


I finally got out my ohm meter and the circuit diagram and checked out all the wires. Turns out the problem was an open circuit in the drivers side seat heating pad. The connectors are fairly accessible under the seats. The circuit is rather involved since the control module is under the passenger seat and the inputs come from the switches on the dash through the climate control module!! What a complicated execution for heated seats!
But I was able to find some new replacement seats on Craigslist and picked one up for $100. It was pretty easy to replace with just the 2 bolts at the back, the wiring harness underneath and the shoulder belt clip. Now everything is working and I sold the old seat for $60. A ne $40 repair and 3 hours of diagnosis and swap work.

06 ford 500 heated seat does not work fuses okdriver side


The problem is very likely a faulty seat heater grid. the seat heater is just like the grid in an electric blanket, the driver side gets the most use and is the first to fail. Since this is a fairly expensive repair you will need to confirm the grid heater is the problem and not the timer switch. This requires a skilled Ford tech to diagnose the system and the dealer is the best place to have this diagnosed.

Here is a heated seat TSB for cars built prior to 12/14/07

TSB 09-4-8
03/09/09
INOPERATIVE HEATED SEAT(S) - BUILT
BEFORE 12/14/2007

FORD:
2005-2007 Five Hundred, Freestyle
2008 Taurus X, Taurus

MERCURY:
2005-2007 Montego
2008 Sable

ISSUE
Some 2005-2007 Freestyle, Five Hundred, Montego and 2008 Taurus, Sable and Taurus X vehicles built before 12/14/2007 may exhibit an inoperative heated seat(s). This concern may be caused by an intermittent open element in the heated seat mat.

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
The heated seat system is controlled by the heated seat module located underneath the front passenger seat cushion. The heated seat switches are part of the heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) module but the heated seat system operates independently from the climate control system. The heated seat module regulates seat temperature by monitoring resistance of a thermistor type thermostat located in the cushion heater mat. The heated seat module is designed to remain on, heating the seat and maintaining temperature until switched off. For vehicles built before 5/1/2006, the module will time-out and switch off after 10 minutes.

1. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 501-10 for pin point test on inoperative heated seat(s).
a. When testing the heater mats resistance and circuits for an intermittent open, technicians should sit in the seat while testing the circuit resistance, move the seat in multiple seating positions and apply pressure to several areas of the heated seat mat to ensure the mat element is not open intermittently.

2. Refer to WSM 501-10 for heated seat element replacement when an open electrical circuit has been identified.
