Drivers side heated seat don't work passengers side ok


Check under the seat to see if the wire connector has been knocked off. If it's ok, then the heater element in the seat is open.

Driver side seat heater light comes on and goes right out seat wont heat up passenger side works fine


The problem lies in the drivers side seat, the heating element for the back of the seat or the seat heating element has an open or shorted circuit. the part from ford will run you about $150.00 dollars.

I guess Its a issue they need to recall I have a 02 intrigue drivers seat heater does the same thing turns off almost immediately after turning it on and today my rear drivers side windows decided it was...


The heater element in the seat has an open circuit. I had this identical problem with myAurora. I replaced the the bottom element with a after market seat heater. I had to rewire by connecting a ground wire and 12volt supply (from disconnected plug connector under seat) The element in the seat back was okay. I switched the plug connector so it was compatible with the new element. I was able to remove the seat cover (leather) from the front and right side enough to be able to replace the seat element without removing the seat from the car. Unfortunately the new switch is round and not compatible with original switch , but I now have a restored heated seat for $65.00 and 3 hours of my time.

2003 2500HD , SILVERADO. WHEN YOU TURN ON EITHER THE BACK OR BACK&SEAT HEATER ON DRIVERS SIDE IT STAYS ON FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS AND GOES OFF.PASS SEAT HEATER WORKS FINE. WHAT WRONG?


Hello and welcome. this almost always a bad seat heater element in the seat. the first thing that will need to be done, is have the seat control module scanned for trouble codes. also will need to check the seat heater elements resistances.

Drivers side seat heater element is bad


Hi Chris. I recommend that you forgo Ebay and order what you need directly from GMpartsdirect.com. You can get the seat kit and the back kit sepatately and each is in the 75 dollar price point. The "element" is a mesh that you install under the upholstry. Not a difficult job. The fact that the dealership wants 500 is why many folks call it a stealership

Chevy Silverado Seat Heater not working


The most likely cause is the seat heater elements, they either have excessive resistance or are open - id recommended replacing both driver side element - upper and lower

Heated seats


Likely, the heating element in the seat has failed. The reason is simply that the drivers seat is in use more than any other seat in the vehicle. You can check continuity of the element with an ohmeter across the seat side of the heater connector. Check for power at the harness side with a volt meter. If there is power but no continuity, heater element has failed. Personally, I'd probably just live with it but you can either attempt to install a new heater element or if you can find a similar seat in a salvage yard, just buy it and put it in! (whole seat probably costs less than the element!!!
