Question about 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Bought my used 2008 Jeep grand cherokee about a month ago, and love it, but the power seat on the driver's side suddenly stopped working. Help! It had operated very well, no problems, and I'm stumped as to why it suddenly quit working. It's now in a position which my husband cannot fit into, so he cannot drive it!

The first thing to check are the fuses. Check your users manual for the exact location. It will also list the fuse's use, there rating and location in the fuse block. Most times you will find a pair of tweezers they are plastic a can be found on the back of the fuse access panel or next to the fuse block. If they are not there just use regular tweezers. Pull out the fuse and look at it closely. There is a small metal strip that runs from one prong to the other if its broken in the middle it bad. You should also have several fuse's labeled as spare located in the fuse block. You can use one of them if it's the same rating.
If you have already check the fuse's then the next place you can check is the electrical plug under the seat itself. It is possible that it has been pulled apart or the wires may be damaged.
These are all the simple thing you can check. Anything more will involve trouble shooting the electrical wiring with a tester.
Hope this helps.
One more thing I know my mother would do anything not drive my Jeep so are you sure your husband didn't sabotage the seat? :)
Just kidding.

My 2002 grand jeep cherokee is blowing out hot air on passenger side and cold air on driver side can u help also the heated seat on driver side has stopped working is this linked


Thats your blend air door. . .I had the same thing with my 02 Grand Cherokee and I think ALOT of other people have as well. I took it to the dealer and ended up costing right around $800, because they have to pull the dash apart to get to the blend air door.

Heated seats


Likely, the heating element in the seat has failed. The reason is simply that the drivers seat is in use more than any other seat in the vehicle. You can check continuity of the element with an ohmeter across the seat side of the heater connector. Check for power at the harness side with a volt meter. If there is power but no continuity, heater element has failed. Personally, I'd probably just live with it but you can either attempt to install a new heater element or if you can find a similar seat in a salvage yard, just buy it and put it in! (whole seat probably costs less than the element!!!

Heated seats are not working but light is on


Sounds like the same problem I had. I brought it to the Jeep dealer and they told me that the heating element in the seat stopped working. They told me that the only way to repair was to take the seat apart and replace the heating element in the seat. Of course they will charge you the standard $80 to tell you this. and then quote you $500 plus to repair. I can't even remember how much, I have decided it was not worth it.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Problem


I would start by checking all the fuses under the hood.
There is a fuse called IOD which the factory leaves out and gets put in at the dealer.
That fuse could be bad.
