My heated seats will not stay on in my 2004 GMC Yukon Denali. The lights will come on and you start to feel heat and then they go off.

    I also am having the same or similar problem the passenger side heated seat works and when it is on if I press the drivers side heated seat button the passenger seat turns off and the drivers seat never comes on. But if the passenger seat is off and I press the drivers side button it only comes on for a brief moment then goes off.

    My 2003 Denali heated seats go off after only a few seconds. Still searching for an answer before calling the Dealer. Not a fuse issue as they come on each time I hit the button on either side.

    heated seat will come on for about 5 seconds or so and then turn off.

    When I hit the button on the drivers side they will come on for maybe 30 second and then go off. If I continue to press the button the seat will heat somewhat. I changed the battery and they worked well for about a week, then the problem came back.

    I have the same problem with my 2006 Yukon XL

    I own a 2003 Yukon Xl, my dealer in Anchorage informed me I needed new heating elements in both front seats. Before I took it in I had the exact same problem as you describe; passager seat heats and shuts off after I push the button on the drivers side.The drivers side starts to heat then shuts off. After I got my rig back from the dealer neither seat would work. I looked under the seat and both harnesses were unplugged. I plugged them back in and my passanger seat heats until I turn on the drivers. I don't think its the seat elements. Did you find and resolution for your problem?

    Same here. They stay on until the driver moves on the seat and then the driver and passenger heaters go off. Sounds like a short to me but I am NO mechanic.

See GM TSB 05-08-143-001, If you have Adjustable pedals, especially if they don't work with the memeory buttons, but function with thier own buttons. Its the Brake Pedal Position Sensor is shorted and mesing up the seat module which controls the heaters too. My 05 Suburban had the same issue

There is a widespread problem with electrical shorts with the seat warmers. I bought the extended warranty through CarMax and theyy fixed it. Retail repair cost on that would have been $900+. It may be covered by GMC via a recall, but only if you raise enough hell.

I have an 04 yukon just started experiencing the same problem..........its got to be something else than the elements because both my seats started acting up at the same time

  • rbishop1713 Apr 10, 2011

    I also have an 04 Yukon and am starting to have the same problem, the heater shuts off for both the front seats after about 20-30 seconds, I would assume some sort of sensor that is being tripped.

  • athomeheathe Sep 07, 2011

    03 Denali-all four seats (front and middle) won't stay on and it happened all at once. I can continue to push the button but they all shut off after 20-30 seconds....

Yes that's normal. it should go off as soon as you open the door though. if it doesn't then they will go off when timer expires (normally about 90 seconds) after you leave the car.

My 2004 yukon's heated seats will not stay on. The button lights up for a few seconds and then turns off. This happens on both the drivers and passenger side.


Mine did that forever, but started working after the instrument cluster was replaced. It started to show 100 mph in a parking lot. Dealer replaced it for free, and now every little quirk seems to have disappeared, including the heated seats. They are very nice lately. Damn cold here.

02 GMC Denali front heated seats won't work


test to see if you have any power going through all the connectors for the seat heater, there may be a spot where there is a connector that has gone bad, or potentially it could be the whole element that is bad
