Latest Jeep models have had major problems, the power seats I have heard there has been a few problems with the motor under the seat working not properly due to the cheap material stored in creating the motor and all the other parts. I have recently drove several jeeps the liberty and grand cherokee and it seems like either the motor or one of the wires needs to be replaced which could have been teared or weared out or was simply not placed when manufactured. there has been a lot of recalls on most the jeep cars.

I've got a 2005 Passat GLX (bought it new); took it in for an oil change, and the mechanic also cleaned my cabin filter. I leave his shop and I realize I don't have power seats no more on the driver's side (passenger side fine)....neither backward/forward or up and down, (separate motors, I believe)....Coincidence????? I don't know-never had any problems before. The car has 65,000 original miles.
The guy checked the fuses on the dashboard driver side, near door....seemed alright. They were closing so he told me to come back Monday....I'm thinking of taking it back to dealer (I lost trust in this guy).
I don't know the history of your problem but I notice the reference to the relay. Heated seats often have problems and it can be things other than the relay. Heated seats work very similar to an electric blanket and just the same they often simply burn out...in most cases it is easy for a good tech with a simple multimeter to determine whether this has happened. The relay can be tested by verifying that it has constant power at one terminal possibly with the key on...if it has that then the fuse is good. this type of relay is usually supplied with a second power lead for relay control that is only powered with the key on. When the switch is depressed it usually will give you a ground at the relay which activates it and allows power to go through the heated seat element. All that is needed is a simple test light. Most relays have a nice diagram on the side to identify the terminals and what they are. A relay simply uses a low current circuit (switch side) to control a high current circuit ( load side). On the relay illustration it will show you a small coil which magnetizes when the switch sends current through it and pulls the switch for the load side closed. Most of the time the wires for the control side are much smaller than the load side. I hope this helps!
Hi, there are two ways to this problem. First of all, check the fuse box for a blown fuse, the seats operate on fuse which if burnt will not make the seat work. The fuse may be located either under the dash on the drivers side or in the engine compartment on the drivers side.Secondly, if it isn't a fuse problem, you have to replace the power motor so it can work again, I can imagine it's gonna cost a lot for your lexus, Normally this happens because of constant use.
THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF THIS IS THE SEAT SWITCH (WIGGLE THE SWITCH WHILE YOU TRY TO MOVE THE EAT), IF THAT DOESN'T FIX IT U WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE POWER SEAT TRANSMISSION, A VERY EXPENSIVE PART, SO TRY THE SWITCH 1ST.
Under the seat there is a plug-in harness, dsisconnect it and see if ther is any power going to the harness, not the seat. then check your fuses under the hood, you should have only one there for your power seats. If that isn't the problem, then replace the motors in the seats.
sounds like a bad fuse, have a look at your manual and see which fuse controls those parts, they are most likely on the same fuse, the fuse box may also say which fuse is for what, If the fuse in the first box doesn't fix it, try a new fuse in the box under the hood, let me know how this goes, you may also have corrosion in a wire but check the fuses first.
