Separated left and right fuse, seems to be a 30 and a 15 amp fuse.

Check that the wiring harness plugs under the seats haven't become disconnected. Next thing to check is that the harnesses have power when the controls for heat/cool are activated. Also check the interior fuse compartment for blown fuses.

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.

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.
