Question about Seat Cars & Trucks
Hi Paul, I'm Al the owner of Big As Auto Repair
Paul, the first thing to do in this situation is to find out if there is a code in the system. This code will lead you closer to knowing what the problem is. There are just way to many things it can be and is impossible to repair without the code. For further assistance go to my website. Have an awesome day Paul.

There should be a connector under each seat which connects power to the heating element. It is likely either clipped to the seat or tucked under the carpeting. You'll almost definitely need to remove the seat to get easier access to it, though it should be possible to find/access it without removing it, just more difficult. Once you find it, disconnect it. You can use any multimeter with a continuity tester to test the circuit. First, check the DC voltage coming from the wires that come up from the floorboard. If you are getting voltage there, you will want to check continuity of the element itself by probing the two wires with the meter set to it's continuity testing selection. If there are more than two wires you will need to determine which is the common wire and which are the "live" wires. With the power disconnected you can test the element to figure this out easily. For example if your heated seat has three wires, test all three for continuity in pairs. If one wire always shows continuity no matter which other wires on the same plug you touch that should be common.
If the element tests good (in other words you find that all the circuits show continuity) and you are getting power from the plug that comes from the vehicle itself, you might need to check the resistance of the element. It is rare to have a bad element that still shows continuity, but it is possible that the resistance may have for some reason become lowered and the element therefore does not heat up.
Try these and let me know how it goes!

Do you have anything under the drivers seat? Fords will put the airbag module under the seat, if anything is packed around it, it can cause the airbag light to come on. Remove any items around it and check the connectors are firmly in place.

chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
