SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: passenger seat heater not working in my 2003 volkswagen jetta

There should be a connector under each seat which connects power to the heating element. It is likely either clipped to the seat or tucked under the carpeting. You'll almost definitely need to remove the seat to get easier access to it, though it should be possible to find/access it without removing it, just more difficult. Once you find it, disconnect it. You can use any multimeter with a continuity tester to test the circuit. First, check the DC voltage coming from the wires that come up from the floorboard. If you are getting voltage there, you will want to check continuity of the element itself by probing the two wires with the meter set to it's continuity testing selection. If there are more than two wires you will need to determine which is the common wire and which are the "live" wires. With the power disconnected you can test the element to figure this out easily. For example if your heated seat has three wires, test all three for continuity in pairs. If one wire always shows continuity no matter which other wires on the same plug you touch that should be common.

If the element tests good (in other words you find that all the circuits show continuity) and you are getting power from the plug that comes from the vehicle itself, you might need to check the resistance of the element. It is rare to have a bad element that still shows continuity, but it is possible that the resistance may have for some reason become lowered and the element therefore does not heat up.

Try these and let me know how it goes!

SOURCE: 1999 Cadillac Deville Driver side power seat not working

No fuse.These seats are protected with relays and a seat module.The module is under the drivers seat.There are 3 connectors and it would be hard to check all these wires for power to the motors.First look under the seat and make sure none of the connectors came apart under the seat by something that might have been left or rolled under it.The 2 main ones you can check are the connector 2 terminal C and connector 3 terminal A.C is a black wire which is ground and A is a red wire which is the feed power wire.Connector 2 is green and 3 is black.If the ground and power wires are good then you could have a bad drivers seat module.What I would do is go to the salvage yard and find a used module to try.Good luck.

I have a 2004 Toyota Camry XLE and the heated seat on the driver side stopped working. I had the fuse labeled for the heated seat (which I believe was 20a) and it was blown. The buttons for the heated...


Replace the fuse with one the same rating. If the seat now works.... smile. If the new fuse blows or the heat does not work you may have a short (or a broken wire) inside the seat that's causing the problem. It's an 11 year old seat.... tearing it apart to find the source may not be worth it.

Heated seats and cruise don't work


Jeep WJ !
you only have 2 choices
buy the fsm, or find it here. below or use alldata.com , it's all there.
or check all fuses.

each fuse has many loads. so test them all or read the FSM..
all cars. made.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

lets see what is there. fuse 23 blown kills cruise. and brake lamps dead. or PCM in limphome and that can kill cruise,
is CEL out running? if not , CRUISE can be suspended for GOOD reasons, (safety) and more on newer cars...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
now seats. not the power seat motors. but heaters.
both sides, dead, bottom and back side?
both sides, have a switch, that the BCM watches.
the BCM controls the seat heat.
above 105F ambient this system shuts down.
in the jeep dealer he connects the DRB and sees whats wrong fast.
if the switch LED are dead key on, the fuse is blown.
are yours? dead? (page 8g-5 , fsm)"heated systems"
if the fuses are good, and the lamp glows, at seat it will take
a dealer DRB tool to find true cause or all day with an ohm meter
per above heated systems pages.

here is how seat heat works, it not like a 1995 car.
the BCM watches that seat switch
it sees (monitors) what you do , then sends (by digital COMMAND via PCI bus to) SM.
power (12vdc) to the heater with the "SEAT MODULE"doing the heavy lifting (drivers)
THE SM drives the seat.
black org. wire to diver back heater. and white to bottom heater
so ill assume the SM lost power, (wild guess)
i can not find the fuse that runs SM module.
but if the LED is out, then the fuse is blown and gee, that is easy to find, just looking.
i dont have a searchable FSM, to scan for SM fuse.

Heated seats


if they were installed correctly the fuse should be in the fuse box (usually driver side under dash) marked seat heater or in an acc slot. also try looking under the seats to see if they are plugged in correctly.

Heated seat on drivers side


If the front passenger's seat heater works and 7.5A fuse 4 in the driver's underdash fuse/relay box and 20A fuse 3 in the passenger's underdash fuse/relay box are OK, the problem is in the driver's seat. The LO/HI switch could be defective or the seat and/or back heaters could be defective

My driver side heated seat stoped working is it a fuse?


No its probably the seat heater unit...they go bad all the time.

The seat has to be taken apart to put the new heater in it.

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.

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
