Question about 2001 Audi A6
I was driving yesterday and suddenly had an OVERWHELMING smell of burning plastic in the car. Seems the passenger seat warmer overheated and my have melted the control dial at the dash too! To my knowledge, the warmer wasn't even on when this started. Parked the car for 6 hours (32 F that night), came back and the seat was still hot! Can I remove a fuse or something? Is there anything else that I should be worried about besides the toxic burning plastic fumes? I can live w/o the seat warmer (too many miles and too bad of an economy to worry about fixing that; besides the driver side works fine!)
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.
