This sounds like a bad heating element in the seat, you will need to test for power and ground at the connection going to heat element, if theres power and a good ground then the element is bad, you will need to remove the seat and take the covering back to remove element.

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.

Hi, I have a 2001 Mazda Millenia S. The light for my heated seats come on, but there is no heat in either the driver's or passenger's seat. What could be the problem?


Mazdas are pretyy bad about the seat heating elements burning out. To verify that the problem is not the circuits to the elements, remove the 4 bolts holding the seat to the floor and tilt the seat back. Find the 2 pn connector for the heating element under the seat. (On the driver's side it will have a White and Red wire and a Yellow and Red wire. On the passenger side it will have a White and Red wire and a Green wire) Disconnect the connector. Using a standard 12 volt test light and a paper clip, use the paper clip to connect on end of the test light to the White and Red wire and probe the Yellow and Red (or the Green wire) with the test light probing end. With the ignition switch on and the seat switches turned on, the test lamp should light up. If it does, you need to replace the heating element in the seat. If it does not light up, post a comment to let me know, and I'll talk you through diagnosing the heater circuits.

2005 hyundai tucson v6 passenger side heated seat will not warm up the light comes on. driver side is ok could it be the switch even if the light comes on


Possibly.... the only way I know to diagnosis this issue is with an amp meter in the circuit that heats the seats. Compare LH & RH seat heating current draw. If you find the pass seat is NOT drawing the same amount of current, further troublshooting is required. There are TWO heating elements installed in the seats -- seat bottom & seat back, and they are connected in 'SERIES'... so if either element goes/is 'OPEN', then it's component replacement time. There is a thermostat in the heating elements -- it regulates the seat temperature. One must isolate the two elements & check each one individually (seat bottom - checking resistance... and seat back - checking resistance). whichever one (or possibly both) are 'OPEN'. If you find resistance is normal (3 to 5 ohms), then the problem/cause may be in the switch (or its contacts). Using a test light (12 volt bulb), check for power (battery voltage) at the heating element connector to ground (chassis). If the bulb lights up, you know you have power at the switch and is sending it to the heating elements.

2005 chevy monte carlo ss, heated seat, driver side, quit working


If the switch lights up when you turn it on but the seat doesnt get hot, it is most likely the heating element in the seat. If the switch doesnt light up, you have a power or ground issue.

Heater seats dont work but light comes on.


Ok it is obvious since the light is coming on you are getting power to the switch. It could be a heated seat relay. Im fairly sure jeeps use a relay after the switch that is where I would start. Check and see if the Heated seat relay, and fuse are good
