Could be. But before you bring it back accusing, follow the wiring under the seat and check the fuse(s) to make sure that isnt it.

Yes, they could have disconnected the wires that run to your seats, or blown the fuse that controls them. Have them check it out.

We Have a Chevy up lander 06 the heated seats will not work and when you go over R/R tracks or hit a bump the seat belt warning buzzer goes off. Thanks appreciate any help


I would look for the seat connector under your seat and make sure it is connected all the way. I would also look for damaged wires. The fact that a large bump like tracks would make your seatbelt buzzer go off makes me think there is something wrong wth the seat wires or connector. Hope just reconnecting the seat connector to the vehicle helps. I would also assume that this is the same connector the seat heater wires run through.

PASSENGER SEAT WONT HEAT UP--BUT LIGHTS COME ON AS IF IT IS WORKING2002 TRAILBLAZER


Find and check the connectors under the seat for looseness, sometimes these get knocked loose by items pushed under the seat.

Then check the resistance between the connectors going to the seat with a multimeter. They should read something - it they don't the heating pads are shorted (broken).

Then check the voltage at the connector going to the seat with the car and seat heat switch on.

This should tell you where the problem is, please post results here.

The driver side heated seat quit working, any suggestions?


I would live with it, those last about as long as air suspension systems and motorized moon roofs. Five years and they are done. You are sitting on a toaster and anything which heats and shuts itself off is bound for failure in the heating element or the circuit breaker. There is a chance that the same exact seat was put in other Saturns so there is a chance that you could find a functioning used seat through an auto recycler, used to be called junkyards. They are not all online, you want to find one locally as the shipping on something as large as a seat is steep.

2005 hyundai tucson v6 passenger side heated seat will not warm up the light comes on. driver side is ok could it be the switch even if the light comes on


Possibly.... the only way I know to diagnosis this issue is with an amp meter in the circuit that heats the seats. Compare LH & RH seat heating current draw. If you find the pass seat is NOT drawing the same amount of current, further troublshooting is required. There are TWO heating elements installed in the seats -- seat bottom & seat back, and they are connected in 'SERIES'... so if either element goes/is 'OPEN', then it's component replacement time. There is a thermostat in the heating elements -- it regulates the seat temperature. One must isolate the two elements & check each one individually (seat bottom - checking resistance... and seat back - checking resistance). whichever one (or possibly both) are 'OPEN'. If you find resistance is normal (3 to 5 ohms), then the problem/cause may be in the switch (or its contacts). Using a test light (12 volt bulb), check for power (battery voltage) at the heating element connector to ground (chassis). If the bulb lights up, you know you have power at the switch and is sending it to the heating elements.

Bottom portion of passenger heated seat not working, but the back heated cushion is working normally. The lights for the seat warmers in both activation switches are illuminated when selected.


It sounds like the heating element is broken. Unfortunately they don't usually tell you that if you have heated seats, kneeling or stepping on them, even briefly (as if you were leaning in to get something from the car), or putting something heavy with a firm edge (like a heavy box), can sometimes break one or more of the wires in the heating element. I'd be willing to bet that this is what has happened. The heating elements in the seat are wired together, so it's not a case of having a heat control module for the cushion dying while the one for the backrest is OK. If the whole seat stopped heating, I'd think about looking into the controls for the seat, but with part of it still working, it's likely that the cushion heater has been damaged and will have to be repaired or replaced.

Heating element in seat ford f150


It can be done, but for the cost of a new heating element, it is worth the purchase. The replacement for my 2001 I think was ~ 40.00 ( online, plus shipping costs ) for the bottom cushion heating element.

You can take the same amount of work to remove the seat cushion, remove the cover, and try soldering the broken elements ( usually the thigh area in the front ), but you have a used element that is patched. The way I have seen it done, is actually using wire to close the circuit again, not create a new element section.
The seat bottom work is a bit much ( to make sure the cover is on straight and no creases ) to spend the time patching vs. replacing what is a fairly cheap part.
You can try Tasca and Southwest ford parts online for the current element pricing.
Depending on the shape of the cover and cushion itself, you might consider replacing those ( or the cushion ) as long as you have it apart, but this is getting a bit expensive ( would be ~ 200.00 for all 3 new ).
I did the cushion at the same time, and it made the world of difference to the feel of the seat, just like the day it came out of the factory.

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.
