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

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.

this is a common problem if you use the seat heater alot.one or both of the seat heater elements will have burned up or broken.where i live it is very cold most of the time and i have replaced hundreds of the seat heater elements.it is rare for it not to be one or both of the elements.

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.
