2005 Freestyle's driver's side heated seat not working

I have a 2005 Freestyle and the driver's side heated seat just stopped working. It has 80,000 miles on it. Has anyone been successful in repairing this w/ a fuse or is the problem only fixed at the dealership w/a new element? Any suggestions are appreciated.

If you have a DVOM, set the dial to A/C and check the wire (backprobe if you can) to see if its getting power, (if you get power the heating element is most likely bad) if you dont get any power, trace the wire to wherever its connected to, and set your DVOM to Ohms, and see if there is a high or low resistance between the beginning and the end of the wire. if theres a high resistance that means broken wire, if low then there could be something wrong with the switch that turns the seat on, (probably best to go to the dealership for that item)

Hope this helps!

If the fuse #13 has not blown, it could be the element has an open. If you have a power meter or 12 volt test light, I would check and see if you have 12 volts to the seat connector. If you do, then the seat element may be damaged.

Hope this helps.

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

TSB 09-4-8
03/09/09
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.

Parts Block
WARRANTY STATUS: Eligible Under Provisions Of New Vehicle Limited Warranty Coverage
IMPORTANT : Warranty coverage limits/policies are not altered by a TSB. Warranty coverage limits are determined by the identified causal part.

OPERATION DESCRIPTION TIME

I hope this helps to solve it.

Most likely a broken wire or plug under the seat, get a flashlight and have a look, the heavy duty wires will be the heater the others the airbag/seatbelt sensors. You might find a bendy. weak section where the copper has flexed and parted.

Heated seat


Could be that the wiring for the heater is broken, or that the heating element itself has been damaged. Has anyone knelt on the seat when reaching in to get something out of the car? Or has anyone stood on it (a child maybe)? Pressure like that can break the heaters and keep them from firing up.
