Question about 1999 Buick Park Avenue
This past winter my front passenger seat no longer heats up. I checked all seat related fuses, all were good. Driver side heats up with no problem.
sounds like the drivers temp door actuator is not working should be located on the drivers side of the air box down by the gas pedal or center dash area.

if you follow the top radiator hose to the engine you will see where it connects to the engine...you will want to drain some of the coolant from the radiattor but once you loosen the clamp holding the hose on you will need to pull the hose off and push it to the side out of the way. there are two bolts that hold the housing on that you need to remove where the hose was hooked up. once you take those bolts out you should be able to pull the housing out and the thermostat is right there.
i do wish to offer you an opinion on the thermostat i dont think its the problem..i think maybe your heater core is partially clogged and not letting the coolant get into the interior of the car as you are driving.if its blowing warm when you start it up and let it run and it gets warm and then get cooler as you drive thats going to be in the heater core since the thermostat is opening to let the heat in when you first start the car up to warm it up.

Seat belts are usually not repairable.The only thing that can be done is to check and make sure nothing is stuck in it or that it is not twisted.You have the kind that is in the seat back itself.These are a little more difficult to remove from the seat because it is so easy to break the plastic trim covers.Best thing to do if not familiar with auto repair to go to the dealer or auto repair shop that you trust and have them repair it.Good luck.

There is a service bulletin for this concern from GM.What you will have to do is go to the dealership and they will reprogram the drivers seat module.It should only take a 1/2 hour.The bulletin number is 05-08-50-008.Hope this helps.Good luck.
