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.

I had the exact same problem and I did the same thing to solve the problem. I pulled back the leather seat bottom. and found a broken red wire. I stripped both ends aboot a quarter inch and used a small marr connector to twist the wires together. problem fixed and it worked fine ever since.

Gmc jimmy heated seat not working on one side only.


Hello-
If your fuses are good, perhaps your heated seat switch is faulty. You can test the switch for connectivity using a meter to see if power is going through the switch when in the ON position. If the meter shows no power while in the ON position, replace the switch. If power is reaching the seat, then likely the heating element itself within the seat is the culprit.

Why won't the heated seats work


Check fuse for seats.

Check switches for seats, replace if necessary.

Check wiring to seats and make sure connections are good.

2005 Honda Pilot passenger heated seat does not work. Fuses are ok.


If fuse #3 20amp in the passanger under-dash box is good.
Check and see if the orange light for the high and low setting come on when you switch between high and low.
if light doesn't come on, the switch itself might be bad.
if light turn on for both setting then, it's a high chance it's the heat pads located under the seat cover need to be replace.

Dash board lights are not working and power seats are not working


I had a similar problem with my 2000 Century. I checked all my fuses to find that they were good. Replaced the headlight switch (approx. $55) and cured the problem. The switch was a snap to get to on my car. It only took about 10 min. to replace. Good luck. Find the plug that powers the heated seat. Using a meter, determine if the heating coil in the seat still has "continuity", meaning, does electricity still conduct through the heating coils. Find a meter to check this. There may be a thermostat in the seat that keeps the seat from getting too hot, so you might want to find it and verify that it works. If the heating coil is not broken (you still have continuity) and the thermostat is working, check back to the switch, connectors and fuse. Take it a step at a time and you should be able to figure out what is wrong.


CHECK FUSES FIRST

Drivers seat heater will not switch on. New fuse installed.


the switch works the relay, the relay powers the heater, being a 12volt heating element, it's bound to have a good size wire going to it, make sure the wire feeding that relay is hot, it will be a larger inline fuse or a fusable link,it will come off a main power source,I.E. the starter or something like that, the small fuse you replaced is for the relay curcuit,good luck

Heated and cooled seats quit working. won't work on either driver's or passanger's seats. checked the fuses and relays and they are all ok. what's wrong?


Remove fuses 10 and 11 in the underhood junction box. Leave out for 5 minutes then reinstall. If the seats start working your Zephyrs dual climate control seat module will need replaced.

Fix lights in steering wheel - 04 DeVille


Steering wheel lights do not have bulbs you can change. The switch is a sealed asembly with an integral light. Each one costs around $110 at the dealership.

Heated seats have wires inside a fabric cover located betwwen the outside seat skin and the inner foam. Over time, they burn out. You can buy replacements from the dealer and have either them or an upholstery shop install them.

Heater seats dont work but light comes on.


Ok it is obvious since the light is coming on you are getting power to the switch. It could be a heated seat relay. Im fairly sure jeeps use a relay after the switch that is where I would start. Check and see if the Heated seat relay, and fuse are good
