I am having a few probems with my 2005 buck rendezvous. the front driver heated seat does not work anymore, and i have checked under the seat for broken or unplugged wires, i need to check the fuse but i dont beleive that is the problem either. also, my back hatch only opens with the original key fob button. have tried unlocking all doors with the interier buttons and the key fob, neither work. only way to open it is to push the open hatch button on the fob.

Heated seat issues are almost Dealer Only repairs

The dealers,some anyway, bring in outside seat folks,
after 5:30 when the service bays closes, to do seats

I am well versed in the heated seat issues

They not only require the dealer techs,the outside seat
folks, they need hours of wire checking & as with my
car, many go on for years & never be resolved

Keep in mind, I'am a 50 year experienced vehicle person,
all be it, retired, I do today's diagnostics on vehicles

The seat & all the other issues can & many to some extend
be on a Network called a CAN as was mentioned on another
question today

Controlled Area Network where modules talk to each other

So your off to a dealer,my suggestion for ALL your issues

Never say a dealer very often,never what I suggest, but
we are going that way with current technology

Hi Jonathon,

i suspect im im going to get booted off the site for constantly making this suggestion, but find a users group for your car.

I'm on groups for just about everything I own (including my electric toothbrush) and information abounds.

All the best.

It should be right under your seat. Check the wires that go into the box. If you have power there you need a new heating control box.
