2004 Chevrolet Avalanche driver side heated seat switch with pedal adjustment and memory does nothing.

Is it just the heated seat? If it is the element in the seat pad has shorted out and the switch acts like a circuit breaker and will turn back off after a few seconds. The only way to fix it would be to pull the seat cushion and test the leads to the element with a meter for resistance. Once the pad is replaced or repaired the switch will work as normal again. There is nothing wrong with the switch...It is the heating element in the seat.

Heated seats not working

Hi Jkelley, I'm glad to help!

After over 40 years in this business I've found that most, and I say most of the time when heated seats quit working its almost always the heated seat elements that go bad. J look and see if the switches light up when you turn the heated seats on. If they do that's is where I would start. If you remove the heated seat pad and its burnt then you know for sure that's the problem. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Jkelley.

Heated seats does not work switch light is on, but no heat

Its generally the heating pad itself, located inside the seat. Quite often they burn out and melt the element. They have a coil of light gage wire routed thru a pad that is adhered to the seat in between cushion and cover. The wire breaks or heats up to where it opens the circuit and quits working. The light indicator is a separate circuit that just indicates to the driver the heated seats have been requested. t would be best to take to a dealer or maybe check out an upholstery shop for an estimate.

Replace brake pads on 2007 expidetion

Hello, the front pads are an easy job, biggest part to all the disassembly is whether the Rotors come off easy or not. You have many choices in pad composition and whether you want to keep old Rotors and recut them or just buy new Rotors.

If you have a 4x4 the Rotors come off the same as in a 2 wheel drive. There are 2 mounting bolts for the Caliper and 2 bigger mounting bolts for Housing assembly. When you remove the Caliper, hang it with a rope or wire underneath the SUV. Do not let it dangle by its hose.

There are mounting clips termed "Hardware" which must be replaced and you need to grease the hardware with a special brake grease like "Slid-ease". Another chemical for the pad is a red pad mounting paste which prevents rattles. Reassemble housing, pads and Caliper and when doing so, you need to compress the Caliper pistons to provide clearance for the new thicker pads.

You can use the old pad and a "C" clamp or pry against the old pad to push in the Caliper pistons. Sometimes it helps to remove the Master Cylinder lid as fluid will return to the Master Cylinder.

The rear brakes I recommend a Brake shop. You have 2 sets of brakes on each axle. If you decide just to throw pads on this end and the Rotors are good its like winning the Lottery. But if you have to remove the Rotors, you have to deal with the Emergency brakes. The E brakes need to be adjusted so the Rotor will come off and then you will appreciate a Brake shop.

The Brake cables from the inside of your SUV to the rear wheels have to work or the E brakes won't. Some states with mandatory Vehicle inspections or Commercial DOT ratings require annual inspections.

If you have any further questions you can use the reply feature on this site. I would also recommend using an Antiseize compound inside the rotors where the rotor contacts the hubs and stud bolts. I hope you find my solution very helpful.

My drivers side heated seat does not get hot on my 2002 cadillac seville

Check the fuses/circuit breaker for the heated seats, check the switch but most likely it is the pad under the seat cover. This is a high failure item.

The heated seat on driver side will not turn on. Switch is good, module is good, and fuse is goos. What else??

The pad itself could be damaged. It contains quite a few strands running from side to side & after repeated seating & such will break. If you get to the plug in that comes from the pad & test for voltage there & have 12 Volts getting to it, but no heat, then more than likely that's the problem. There are many replacement types available including the newer "Carbon fiber" heated seats that just slip into where the old one was & then you just plug them into the orginal wiring with minor mods.
good luck.

Change brake pads . howto do it

Hi I am vortash the easiest way to change pads is first to buy yourself a Haynes Manual for your vehicle type and model , this will explain the best and easiest way for you to change your breaks , they go into quite fine detail and explain everything with excellent graphics or pictures . I have had a manual for each of my vehicles and have completed many jobs otherwise thought to be the domain of the specialist mechanic . You will find this book invaluable for other jobs also and it will actually save you hundreds of Dollars / Pounds .. However if you can do it this way maybe I can explain how I do it on my car ..

first remove the road wheel make sure the car is safely supported .
Remove the Cap to the hydrulic filler resavoir for the brakes . place a kitchen tissue over the resavior and place an elastic band around it to prevent contamination from dirt and dust .
remove the pad retaining clips from top of calliper usuually two spring pins running through top of pads and remove the top calliper spring ( usually a black H shaped spring under the spring piins .
With a heafty screwdriver gently ease the brake pistons back ( this is why you take off the resavoir cap to ease preassure ) once pushed back ease out pads and replace .
not forgetting to replace the anti squeal shims .
I do this on all four wheels and then ease the foot pedal a couple of times to re set the pistons ..
Doing it this way also means I do not have to bleed the system .. replace cap and you should be fit to go .
I then take the vehicle to have a pre mot done they check the brakes on a rolling road and if they pass then I know I have done the job right and can have my family in the car wiith confidence .. hope this helps Regards Vortash

PS if you have the non return system on your car you will need to release each bleed nipple to allow the pistons to go back .. use a non return bleed pipe on the nipple into a glass jar so as to make sure there are no air bubbles and make sure you keep the resavoir topped up providing you do this correctly there is no need to bleed afterwards as long as the resavior has not dropped below half way and you have used a non return bleed pipe . .. vortash
