Heated driver seat doesn't heat on 2001 Buick Regal GS


You have probably burnt up the element as it is a 17 year old seat now. The elements are replaceable, but the labor is pretty spendy. To test it you will need a multimeter to check for continuity across the connectors that go to the seat heating elements and check for voltage at the car side of the connector. If you have 12v to one side of the connector and continuity to ground at the other side, and do not have continuity to the seat side between the connectors, you know it is a bad element.

I pulled the fuse on my v w golf 1.6 now the air bag light is on


You probably pulled the air bag fuse as well ? Try replacing that fuse (with the correct type ofcourse) ... Could also try disconnecting the battery afterwards for like a minute (that will reset any faultcode). When the warning light still comes on, you still have a problem and I would suggesting reading the faultcodes using OBD.

Heated seats not working on 2002 Oldsmobile aurora


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Check for a broken wire connecting the heating element. A common cause for the heated seats to not work is a burned heater element. There is an element under the seat cushion cover, and one under the seatback cover. If either has failed, both will not work. Take the seat apart and investigate the problem thoroughly.

Determine if the front seat assembly heat element resistance values are within the specified range.
If the resistance values are NOT within the specified range, install a Front Seat Heater Package between the existing front seat trim cover factory heat elements and the seat cushion and back foam pads.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Heated set will not work.


The elements that heat the seats have failed. you will need to replace these failed seat elements asap if possible. These elements are embedded in the actual seats.

It does not have power to overtake although when stood it will rev it is an audi A3 1.9 tdi and is 2000


Your motor probably runs in "failsafe" mode (won't go past 3000rpm in highest gear), but in that case the ECU warning light should also come on (which might also be broken ofcourse).

Try releasing and reconnecting the battery (-connectors), which should "reset" any fault-codes in the ECU and see if the TDI power is back. Please note that the "cause" of the ECU faultcodes will probably put the motor back in "failsafe" mode within minutes ! But at least you've verified that your motor runs in "failsafe" mode due to serious faultcodes in the ECU.

You should have a dealer/expert read the ECU faultcodes using VAGCOM to determine the cause. A dealer will charge something like 50~60$ for it.

Since it's a 1.9TDI my best guess is that's it a broken N75 turbo-valve (common TDI issue, replacing the part yourself will cost less than $30 and 15 minutes). When the dealer suggests a complete replacement of the Turbo-unit (quite expensive), please have a TDI-expert do an 2nd opinion ...

Heated Seats


I had the same problem on my 04 LeSabre. To check to see whether it was the element or the switch, I unplugged both seats and ran jumper wires to make left switch control the right element. The switch and element worked properly. Then I ran jumper wires to make right switch control the left element. The problem was the same, so it was the element was bad.

I had my element replaced at the dealership, since I didn't want to wreck my leather seats. It cost over $400 (about $150 for the element). I guess it just tucks next to the old element - the old element stays in place.

Heated seat


Could be that the wiring for the heater is broken, or that the heating element itself has been damaged. Has anyone knelt on the seat when reaching in to get something out of the car? Or has anyone stood on it (a child maybe)? Pressure like that can break the heaters and keep them from firing up.
