Heated seats quit working

I find it hard to believe that all 4 heater elements would burn out at the same time. Has anyone got an idea what would cause them to just quit.

Heated seats


Test heated seat circuits. Most likely, a burned out seat heater element. Check for power at the seat heater element connector to verify. If there is no power at the connector, then the rest of the system must be diagnosed to find out why.

2002 buick rendezvous both electric seats quit working fuses OK switches work and lights come on. I am mechanical but if anyone has had the same issues I may save a bunch of time looking.


Lights come on? Are you talking about the seat heaters? If so, the heating elements may be burned out.

Check the circuits at the element connectors. If there is power and ground at the element connectors under the seat, then the elements are burned out.

Other than that, I would recommend scanning your Body Control Module for fault codes.

How do you operate heated seats


Press the button. If no heat it is usually the heater element in the seat has burnt open. They are located between the cushion and the cover and quite often burn out.

My power seat stopped working in my 2003 Yukon XL. The heated seats stopped working as well.


Try this remove the ckt breaker for the power seats the ckt breaker is located in the fuse box inside down by the drivers left foot. leave breaker out for about 10 seconds then reinstall it and see if the seat starts moving. If it does there is a reprogram for this and needs to be done by a dealer or someone who has access to be able to reprogram your vech.
several things could cause your heated seats to not work. If the seat and heated seat seat stopped at the same time could be the reprogram could fix it. If the heated seat quit working at a differant time it could be the seat heater element. get a schematic of the heated seat and ohm the wires for the element. If either element tests open then the element will need to be replaced. You might as well replace both of them at the same time since the seat covers have to come off to replace the seat heaters.(back and bottom ) If one element is bad then both heaters quit working.

The driver seat heater just quit. all fuses are good. how do you tell if the relay is good?


Swap it with a relay you know to be good and see if it works again,pick a relay that is not important to the function of your car.

Heated seats not working on 2002 Oldsmobile aurora


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Check for a broken wire connecting the heating element. A common cause for the heated seats to not work is a burned heater element. There is an element under the seat cushion cover, and one under the seatback cover. If either has failed, both will not work. Take the seat apart and investigate the problem thoroughly.

Determine if the front seat assembly heat element resistance values are within the specified range.
If the resistance values are NOT within the specified range, install a Front Seat Heater Package between the existing front seat trim cover factory heat elements and the seat cushion and back foam pads.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

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.
