SOURCE: heated seat not working

The heater element for the seat is broken or damaged....It will need to be replaced....The blinking light lets you know there is a problem and does not let power flow to the element. This is for safety reasons to prevent short out or even fire.

SOURCE: heated driver seat problem

I just repaired one not long ago.It was a 2001 with heated seats.The first thing you can do is switch the switches to see if the problem moves to the other seat.There are at least three little heaters attached to the foam,that is bonded to the leather.One had a broken wire,the other two [that I know of in the base] tested good.Seems they all have to be working,so everyone must be tested for continuity,with out being pluged in to the others.The only way to see whats going on is to somewhat remove the leather from the seat. With extreme care I was able to get more wire out of the heater and soldier it back on.Then used silicone or 3m window welder around[I don't remember wich] to protect it as that is how it kind of it from the factory. It looked like the wire broke at the edge of the protective part due to sitting on the seat too many times. Bad design,to hold up over time.

2010 Lincoln MKS Heated Seat on driver's side stopped working (Light in button turns off on its' own)


The most common cause of this problem is that the drivers seat heater grid is open or burned out. That is based on 25 years as a Ford dealer technician.

2004 GMC Sierra drivers side seat heater turnes on and off by itself


The seats are powered by a 30amp breaker which includes the circuits for the power motors.
The signal from the control switch goes to a door module then to a memory seat module, then to the heater elements.
It may be easier to disconnect the heating element for now, repairs will need a shop manual to test and trace the circuits.

Heated seat not coming on


Does the passenger seat stay on and heat up? If so the drivers seat heater grid (just the same as an electric blanket) is shorted or open and that causes the system to switch it self off. To replace the heating grid requires the seat cover to be removed and the grid replaced, this is best left to an automotive trim shop, they are cheaper than the dealer in fixing this kind of problem. The part will need to come from the dealer if still available.

2006 tahoe with heated seats. when the seat is


The heating element in the seat may be failing, even thogh it heats the seat, the element could be causing the circut to spike upon power shut down. Relay takes mili-second to shut down after ignition kill and power feed comes direct from battery. Check amp. draw at switch of bad seat and good seat upon shut down. If bad seat higher that 5 amp difference element n/g. Also check for bad relay as they can short internal and cause problems if primary power cut before switch shut down.

Silveraldo seat heater comes on


Look under the seat. If you have power seats the wire for that will run right to the seat switch. The seat heat wire will run from the on/off switch to the heater element in the seat. It sounds like you need a new heater switch.
I hope this helps.

I will post it in 2 different posts because its too long DB

HEATED SEAT SYSTEM
Individually controlled driver and passenger side electrically heated front seats are available factoryinstalled optional equipment on this model, when it is also equipped with the power seat option. The heated seat system allows both the driver and the front seat passenger the option to select one of two seat heating ranges, Low or High, or to turn the individual seat heaters OFF using the heated seat switches located in the center lower bezel near the bottom of the instrument panel center stack. The heated seat switch circuit operates on ignition switched battery current supplied through a fuse in the junction block, only when the ignition switch is in the ON position.

The heated seat system consists of the following components
  • Heated seat elements
  • Heated seat sensors
  • Heated seat module (or memory heated seat module)
  • Heated seat switches.
The heated seat system also relies upon resources shared with other electronic modules in the vehicle over the Programmable Communications Interface (PCI) data bus network. The PCI data bus network allows the sharing of sensor information. This helps to reduce wire harness complexity, internal controller hardware, and component sensor current loads. At the same time, this system provides increased reliability enhanced diagnostics, and allows the addition of many new feature capabilities. For diagnosis of these electronic modules or of the PCI data bus network, the use of a DRB scan tool and the proper Diagnostic Procedures are recommended.

The electronic modules that may affect heated seat system operation are as follows:
  • Body Control Module (BCM) - Refer to Body Control Module in Electronic Control Modules for more information.
  • Heated Seat Module (HSM) - Refer to Heated Seat Module in Electronic Control Modules for more information.
  • Memory Heated Seat Module (MHSM) - If the vehicle is equipped with the Memory System, refer to Memory Seat Module in Electronic Control Modules for more information.
Refer to Power Seats Premium I/III in the Contents of Wiring Diagrams for complete circuit diagrams. Following are general descriptions of the major components in the heated seat system.

The heated seat system will only operate when the ignition switch is in the ON position, and the surface temperature at the front seat heating element sensors is below the designed temperature set points of the system. The heated seat system will not operate in ambient temperatures greater than about 41 °C (105 °F) . The front seat heating elements and sensors are hard wired to the Heated Seat Module (HSM) or the Memory Heated Seat Module (MHSM).

The heated seat switches are hard wired to the Body Control Module (BCM). The BCM monitors the heated seat switch inputs, then sends heated seat switch status messages to the HSM or MHSM over the Programmable Communications Interface (PCI) data bus. The HSM or MHSM contains the control logic for the heated seat system. The HSM or MHSM responds to the heated seat switch status messages, ignition switch status messages, and the front seat heating element sensor inputs by controlling the output to the front seat heating elements through integral solid-state relays.

When a seat heater is turned ON, the sensor located on the seat cushion electric heater element provides the HSM or MHSM with an input indicating the surface temperature of the seat cushion. If the surface temperature input is below the temperature set point for the selected Low or High heated seat switch position, the HSM or MHSM energizes the integral solid-state relay, which supplies battery current to the heating elements in the seat cushion and back. When the sensor input indicates the correct temperature set point has been achieved, the HSM or MHSM de-energizes the solid-state relay. The HSM or MHSM will continue to cycle the solid-state relay as needed to maintain the temperature set point.

The HSM or MHSM and the seat heater elements operate on non-switched battery current supplied through the power seat circuit breaker in the junction block. However, the HSM or MHSM will automatically turn OFF the heating elements if it detects an open or short in the sensor circuit, a short or open in the heating element circuit causing an excessive current draw, or when the ignition switch is turned to the OFF position.

See the owner's manual in the vehicle glove box for more information on the features, use and operation of the heated seat system.
