    My driver's seat heating worked yesterday but not any more (2004 LS Leather).
    Where are the seat thermostats and how to access them? I looked under the seat and it only seems to have connectors there.

Check you connections both under the seat and at the switch. Many times corrosion will occur due to the amount of amperage that goes through the circuit.

Porche cayene 2006 side passenger heat doesn't work


Hi,
Many seat heaters are either controlled by a fuse, switch and/ or relay. You may need to check whichever of those you may have the skill to do. If the LIGHT on the heater switch is working you can probably rule out those 3. Likely the 'heater elements' (usually thin wires than run under the seat's cover that heat up when voltage is applied, which then heats the seat) have a crack in them somewhere, which needs reconnected.

Also, does the power control work on the passenger seat? If not, it may share a circuit/fuse w/the heater switch.

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 ?

Drivers side seat quit working and the seat heat's not working either. Passenger side works fine, fuse looks good, any suggestions?


if you already checked the fuses and found them to be good then you may now want to check the connectors under the seat. You will need a probe light to so this. The probe light will light up if you have power coming into the (+) terminal end. Watch this video to learn how to use a probe light tester.

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.

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche driver side heated seat switch with pedal adjustment and memory does nothing, doesn't light up or anything. The passenger side heated seats work perfect. Does this sound like


The left I/P fuse block also contains the 25A LT DOORS CIRCUIT BREAKER which could be defective (no 12V on ORG lead). The I/P relay block contains the 30A SEATS CIRCUIT BREAKER which, if defective, would affect the memory seat module (also no 12V on ORG lead). The pedal adjust circuit receives power through the 15A EAP FUSE in the underhood fuse block.
