Not really....if u said they all had stopped working, then there r a few bullitens for that. Find the seat bottom heating element connector under the seat. Make sure its connected good first. Then u need to check the ohm across the element not the harness side. If u have excessive then the element is burnt. If the wiring is all good, its a good chance its the element but check it first

There is a wire with two flat prongs disconnected between the front and back seat. What is this to?


Probably either the air bag sensor or heated seats power supply. New cars won't activate the airbags unless someone is sitting in the seat and closes the switch.

Where are relays for heated seats in 2004 monte carlo ss


Hi jkelley, I'm glad to help!

Usually in most cases when the heated seats quit working its the heated seat element that you sit on under the padding. Here's what I want you to do: Turn the key on then push the heated seat on button and see if it lights up. This is a quick test but not always an accurate test because the switch could still be working but the LED Light could be bad. BUT, in most cases this is a good test. If it lights up then its safe to say that its mostly likely the ELEMENT that's bad. Most of the time if you'll raise the seat cover you'll see that the element is burnt. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.

Fix heated driver seat on 04 cts


The #1 cause of the heated seat not working is that the heating grid is defective from all the 1000's of times it is flexed when you sit in it. To replace the grid requires the seat be taken apart and the seat cover removed, this takes skilled hands and some special tools to get done right, it is a job best left to an auto trim shop that does upholstery work

I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada...Yesterday all of a sudden my passenger's side window stop working(up and down)...the power lock and the heated seat all stop working on my passenger's side...?


If you have an Owners manual, try looking for a fuse panel diagram. Your could have a bad connection inside the doorpanel which shorted the fuse. The seat drive motor must be wired to a separate circuit coming from the floorboard and its okay.
The circuits are wired independently to protect the lighter wires from the heavy drain of the seat motor. If you had the heated seat function working on the seat at the same time as adjusting the seat motor it would be too much for a single circuit, so they gave you two circuits.

If you are going to work on the door panel, disconnct the NEG battery cable so you won't short out something taking it apart.

Another Repair place you might try is a Glass Replacement shop. They install the inner workings of window tracks daily and remove the door panels to do it. They would be able to find your wires, test your window motor, and get you on your way quickly.

Unlike a Dealership, they have a high turnover of glass installations daily. Some even come to your house to repair your problem. Your car would be repaired more quickly with these services.

Here is a heated seat TSB for cars built prior to 12/14/07

INOPERATIVE HEATED SEAT(S) - BUILT
BEFORE 12/14/2007

FORD:
2005-2007 Five Hundred, Freestyle
2008 Taurus X, Taurus

MERCURY:
2005-2007 Montego
2008 Sable

ISSUE
Some 2005-2007 Freestyle, Five Hundred, Montego and 2008 Taurus, Sable and Taurus X vehicles built before 12/14/2007 may exhibit an inoperative heated seat(s). This concern may be caused by an intermittent open element in the heated seat mat.

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
The heated seat system is controlled by the heated seat module located underneath the front passenger seat cushion. The heated seat switches are part of the heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) module but the heated seat system operates independently from the climate control system. The heated seat module regulates seat temperature by monitoring resistance of a thermistor type thermostat located in the cushion heater mat. The heated seat module is designed to remain on, heating the seat and maintaining temperature until switched off. For vehicles built before 5/1/2006, the module will time-out and switch off after 10 minutes.

1. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 501-10 for pin point test on inoperative heated seat(s).
a. When testing the heater mats resistance and circuits for an intermittent open, technicians should sit in the seat while testing the circuit resistance, move the seat in multiple seating positions and apply pressure to several areas of the heated seat mat to ensure the mat element is not open intermittently.

2. Refer to WSM 501-10 for heated seat element replacement when an open electrical circuit has been identified.

Heated set will not work.


The elements that heat the seats have failed. you will need to replace these failed seat elements asap if possible. These elements are embedded in the actual seats.

are you saying neither the heated seat cushion nor heated seated back on either seat works? But the light or lights does work?

Please rate as solved if this helps you. It took some time to dig all this stuff up. Please report progress.

Here's some info to start you off:

  • The heated seat is inoperative — seat does not heat but the heated seat switch illuminates when pressed
  • Circuitry.
  • Heated seat module.
  • Seat heater and temperature sensor.
  • Seat back heater.
  • Heated seat switch.

Saturn VUE 2004-Heated seats just stopped working. Fuse is fine..


This is not un- common. The heating elements do wear after a while. It is probably an open circuit in one of the pads in your seat. A quick restance check can determine which one it is.

the fuse is #110, it is in the power distribution box under the hood, it also runs the moon roof, so if the moon roof works the fuse is good, if this is the case the heated seat switch is the likely cause and by far the most common..
