SOURCE: Drivers seat heater, sideview mirror switch

The wires in the seat heater will burn out if they are left on HI for too long. You can take the seat out of the car, remove the seat covering, and solder some new wires in place of the fried ones. Then put it all back together and hope you don't get a shock in your **** when you flip the switch for the first time. I just did this to my 2000 TL today and it took about 3 hrs to get it all worked out. For step by step instructions go to: http://joshsworld.com/cars/acura-tl-seat-heater-fix/

SOURCE: What could cause my drivers side power seat to stop moving forward and backward?

sounds like you might have a switch problem if the memory for seat position works ok. If you have a multimeter that checks for continuity then you could start there at the switch but you would also need a wiring diagram for the seats

2012 Kia Sorento drivers side heated seat doesn't work


There is an electrical connector underneath the seat. Verify it is connected. If it is connected, check the fuse (find fuse location underneath fuse box lid). If those two check out, check the voltage at the electrical connector underneath the seat with the heat switch on. Other possibilities include a broken wire inside the seat. If one of the heater wires is broken inside the seat there will be no continuity and the heat will not work.

Drivers side heated seat don't work passengers side ok


Check under the seat to see if the wire connector has been knocked off. If it's ok, then the heater element in the seat is open.

Hello and welcome. this almost always a bad seat heater element in the seat. the first thing that will need to be done, is have the seat control module scanned for trouble codes. also will need to check the seat heater elements resistances.

Here is a heated seat TSB for cars built prior to 12/14/07

TSB 09-4-8
03/09/09
INOPERATIVE HEATED SEAT(S) - BUILT
BEFORE 12/14/2007

FORD:
2005-2007 Five Hundred, Freestyle
2008 Taurus X, Taurus

MERCURY:
2005-2007 Montego
2008 Sable

ISSUE
Some 2005-2007 Freestyle, Five Hundred, Montego and 2008 Taurus, Sable and Taurus X vehicles built before 12/14/2007 may exhibit an inoperative heated seat(s). This concern may be caused by an intermittent open element in the heated seat mat.

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
The heated seat system is controlled by the heated seat module located underneath the front passenger seat cushion. The heated seat switches are part of the heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) module but the heated seat system operates independently from the climate control system. The heated seat module regulates seat temperature by monitoring resistance of a thermistor type thermostat located in the cushion heater mat. The heated seat module is designed to remain on, heating the seat and maintaining temperature until switched off. For vehicles built before 5/1/2006, the module will time-out and switch off after 10 minutes.

1. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 501-10 for pin point test on inoperative heated seat(s).
a. When testing the heater mats resistance and circuits for an intermittent open, technicians should sit in the seat while testing the circuit resistance, move the seat in multiple seating positions and apply pressure to several areas of the heated seat mat to ensure the mat element is not open intermittently.

2. Refer to WSM 501-10 for heated seat element replacement when an open electrical circuit has been identified.

Parts Block
WARRANTY STATUS: Eligible Under Provisions Of New Vehicle Limited Warranty Coverage
IMPORTANT : Warranty coverage limits/policies are not altered by a TSB. Warranty coverage limits are determined by the identified causal part.

OPERATION DESCRIPTION TIME

I hope this helps to solve it.

No biggy.The seat heater can be repaired by the dealership.Should not cost much because there are no parts just a reprogram of the drivers seat module.The blower motor is the blower motor resistor module.It is on the passengers side under the dash next to the blower motor.You should be able to do this yourself if you have a little mechanical experience.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Wheres the battery located on 2005 dts


The battery is under the rear seat on the passengers side.To remove the seat bottom push in and up from the front of the seat.There will be 2 latches.One on the passengers side and one on the drivers side.There is also a seat heater connector on the passengers side so when you pull the seat up make sure and disconnect this connector before removing the seat.You will see the battery once you pull the seat up.Good luck.
