Question about Cars & Trucks
Not certain about the fuse - likely that there would be 2 seperate fuses.
I would suspect the wiring under the seat or under the mat leading to it, check the clip under seat, take it apart and check for voltage going to the seat, or very little resistance in the element in the seat your reading should almost goto zero showing either a short or the element being good!
eg., an ohm meter will tell you if the element is broken with no reading but you wouldn't be able to tell if the element or wire was shorted unless it was blowing fuses as the reading would be the same, or very close to same, going to zero! If no reading, the wire from that point on is broken or the element itself.
I would suspect the switch could be bad also which could be traced back or removed and tested the same way, testing the contacts on the switch for continuity or voltage through the switch contacts

Page 43 in the document linked to below is a wiring diagram of the heated seats in an 850. If you're lucky some wires have come loose and are hanging under the seats, if you're unlucky you might have to do some shredding of the seats in order to replace broken parts. If so there is a fairly inexpensive repair kit made specifically for this purpose, but I don't have the part number available right now. Arm yourself with a multimeter and get to it!

Remove fuses 10 and 11 in the underhood junction box. Leave out for 5 minutes then reinstall. If the seats start working your Zephyrs dual climate control seat module will need replaced.

It is usually one of two problems. Either the relay under the seat has failed or the heat element in the seat has failed.
If you are not electrically challenged, you can use a simple volt-ohm meter and check for continuity in the heat element. If you have continuity, the element is good, otherwise that's your problem.
If the heat element is good, you may want to take the good relay from under the passenger seat and put it on the driver's side to see if that fixes it. If so, then you have to get a new relay.
Last, but very unlikely, would be a bad switch.

yes maybe a fuse, also look under the seat and ensure the wire is connected they sometimes get caught when moving the seat back and forward and split against the metal seat base.
