You should be able to move the seat forward to get to the wiring harness. The way the system works is power comes from heated seat module to the lower cushion on the WH/BU wire goes thru the element in the cushion and then comes out on the BU/WH wire and then goes thru the element in the seat back then out on WH/RD wire back to module. If it has an open circuit then no heat from either on cushion or seat back. You can check them with an ohm meter. Usually it is the element in the cushion that goes bad. You can get the element seperately but cover has to be removed to replace it.

Is there a separate fuse for the passenger and Driver side accessories such as the seat warmer and the mirrors? Drivers side works, passenger side does not.


Depends on which model car you are talking about, some do most don't. The mirrors and seat warmers are more likely to be on separate fuses.

Before you do any of the expensive things disconnect and reconnect the wiring to the seat I had the same exact problem with my 2009 Chevy Impala and was ready to take it to the dealer when I disconnected the power cables to it and reconnected them I found that one of the Harnesses was loose and the problem was solved

Drivers seat warmer stopped working ,but the passenger seat work fine,don't know how to fix this .


it's possible tha there is a break in the heating element in the driver's seat. to diagnose, disconnect connector going into seat and use a multimeter to check for continuity between the two terminals. if there's no continuity (open circuit), the element is broken somewhere. happens quite often when someone kneels on the seat, or a heavy object is placed on the seat, pressing down hard in one area. to repair, the seat cover must be removed and the break must be located and repaired.

2001 Audi A6 Seat overheated!


There should be plug for the heated seat most likley under it or on the drivers side of passenger seat. This should fix your problem, if it doesn't that means the short is in the dial in the dash. There should be a seperate fuse for each seat in the fuse box. If unplugging the seat doesn't help come back and i will figure out which fuse is the right one and where your fuse box is.

Drivers side seat heater won't warm the seat


sounds like a bad relay. Look in the owners manual or on the fusebox cover. It will not be a fuse, but a silvery looking box that pulls out. Youll have to check the documentation to see which one it is in your vehicle.
Sometimes it is under the seat in a Volvo.
check the relay under the seat, make sure it hasn't worked its way loose. if its still tight, the heater pad itself has probably checked out.
If its not the relay, and you want to save some $$, replace the drivers side with the P/S. 'F' the passenger :)
