Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

Driver Heated Seat 03 Suburban

My 2003 suburban has heated seats, when I turn the heated seat on the drivers side on, it comes on, then I hear a click from under the seat, and it goes off. It will only stay on maybe 1 second, the passenger side works fine until you turn driver side heated seat on, then they both go off. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Same thing, passenger side works fine until I turn on the driver side. I believe the click is from under the dash. This looks to be a common problem with GM.

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

I have heated seats in my '04 suburban, the driver seat will start heating up on its own. It will go from hi to lo and everything in between.


You should have an electrical connection, under the seat itself which can be disconnected. Be careful to stay away from any side airbag wiring.

The driver's side heated seat won't turn off on my 2003 Mecury Moutaineer. Also, how do I change my cabin filter?


Your vhicle build date is on a blue sticker on the driver door or door frame. If not there, check other doors.
The heated seat Module is under the seat. You can unplug the connector on it or the heated seat switch to shut it off. I supect the module is bad. get one used from car-parts.com. The cabin air filter is under the leaf screen at the base of the windshield. Remove wiper arms and leaf screen for access. Please rate, thanks. Principles of Operation - Heated Seats - Vehicles Built 03/2002 Onward
NOTE: Two heated seat modules are used, one for vehicles built up to 03/2002 and one for vehicles built 03/2002 onward. The modules are not interchangeable.
The driver and passenger heated seats share a common battery and ignition feed. A shared ground source supplies the heated seat control switches. When the heated seat control switch is pressed with the ignition switch in RUN or START, a momentary ground signal is sent to the heated seat module. The heated seat module then supplies power to the heating element circuit. The cushion element and seat backrest element are wired in series and powered by the same output. The heated seat module also will ground the separate indicator circuit at the dual automatic temperature control (DATC) module display panel to indicate an ON state. The heated seat module will remain on until the heated seat control switch is pressed and a momentary voltage signal is received, or until 10 minutes expire. If the ignition source is removed from the module, the heated seat module will enter an OFF state and will not return to ON until the switch is once again pressed with the ignition switch in RUN. The heated seat module is designed to heat the seat to 37.5?C (99.5?F) and maintain the temperature until time-out or switched off. This temperature is maintained by the heated seat module monitoring the temperature sensor located in the seat cushion element, and adjusting the current flow to the heating elements.

The problem could be the drivers seat module.It is under the seat and controls the drivers seat functions.There is a service bulletin for seats that will only work for a few minutes and then shut off by themselves.The fix for this is having the drivers seat module reprogrammed but I don`t know if your problem would fall in this bulletin.Only the dealerships can program these modules.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Driver Heated Seat 03 Suburban


The most likely failure point is the driver heated seat elements. They probably have excessive resistance and once they warm up a little they short out the module and it defaults to not working. I would recommend replacing both upper and lower driver seat elements.
