Check fuse for seats.

Check switches for seats, replace if necessary.

Check wiring to seats and make sure connections are good.

Check the fuses, if those are good and that is a bench seat, test the control, if the control is good replace the electric motor.

SOURCE: Why won't the driver's seat on my 2006 XJ8L won't adjust in height?

You have a problem with the power seat transmission. The 1st thing to do is make sure that nothing under the seat is impeding the movement of the seat, if that is OK you will need to try and find a used power seat transmission, the parts are not sold separately, just the whole assembly.

The drivers seat won't move and the heated seats won't work on both sides. Where is the fuse?


Check underneath the seat for an inline fuse. It is a glass type fuse in a fuse holder that you have to push and twist to get out.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2002 Trailblazer heated seats won't work


First check circuit breaker #8 and fuse #19 in the rear fuse panel. If these are OK, you will have to troubleshoot the seat heaters themselves (loose connector, broken wires, defective heater coil, etc.)

The driver's side heated seat won't turn off on my 2003 Mecury Moutaineer. Also, how do I change my cabin filter?


Your vhicle build date is on a blue sticker on the driver door or door frame. If not there, check other doors.
The heated seat Module is under the seat. You can unplug the connector on it or the heated seat switch to shut it off. I supect the module is bad. get one used from car-parts.com. The cabin air filter is under the leaf screen at the base of the windshield. Remove wiper arms and leaf screen for access. Please rate, thanks. Principles of Operation - Heated Seats - Vehicles Built 03/2002 Onward
NOTE: Two heated seat modules are used, one for vehicles built up to 03/2002 and one for vehicles built 03/2002 onward. The modules are not interchangeable.
The driver and passenger heated seats share a common battery and ignition feed. A shared ground source supplies the heated seat control switches. When the heated seat control switch is pressed with the ignition switch in RUN or START, a momentary ground signal is sent to the heated seat module. The heated seat module then supplies power to the heating element circuit. The cushion element and seat backrest element are wired in series and powered by the same output. The heated seat module also will ground the separate indicator circuit at the dual automatic temperature control (DATC) module display panel to indicate an ON state. The heated seat module will remain on until the heated seat control switch is pressed and a momentary voltage signal is received, or until 10 minutes expire. If the ignition source is removed from the module, the heated seat module will enter an OFF state and will not return to ON until the switch is once again pressed with the ignition switch in RUN. The heated seat module is designed to heat the seat to 37.5?C (99.5?F) and maintain the temperature until time-out or switched off. This temperature is maintained by the heated seat module monitoring the temperature sensor located in the seat cushion element, and adjusting the current flow to the heating elements.

Seat warmers won't come on?


Hi, the most common fault with the seat heaters is the heating elements, your 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe would be no exception. The upper and lower elements work in series so that if one fails they both stop working. The best way to test them is to check the resistance of each heating element separately. If one or both are out of spec the faulty element will need to be replace. This will involve removing the seat cover(s) as necessary to access the element.

Heated seats in 2007 Lincoln MKX not working. I puch the button to turn them on and they light up for a second then go off. What would be the cause and solution. If it was a major problem would effect...


Help anybody?
I have a 2010 Lincoln MKX with heated and cooled front seats. However, when I try to turn them on (85% of the time) they don't work. Primarily when it's cold the heated seats won't stay on... The light turns on for a fast count of 1-5 and then turns off. This has happened since the car was new and I've had it into the dealer 4 times to have it fixed (with no resolve). In their defense they suggest it's fixed each time because they test the heated seats when the vehicle is warm in the shop. Unfortunately, this is nearly the only time it stays on.
I would love to recommend a suggested fix to the dealer as they don't seem to be able to repair it... Any ideas???
