Heated Seats in 2002 Buick Regal (Joseph Abboud)

Driver's heated seat won't work. I already checked the fuses. I am told that the element in the bottom seat cover is the problem, but the back section is ok. Where can I get the part, & is it a job best left to the mechanics?!

    I have the same problem and was wondering where a new element can be purchased that will plug into the existing wiring harnesses and on/off switch.

    Fuses are fine. But drivers seat does not activate when switch thrown. And passenger seat stays on, even with car off. Help!

Heated Seats
This system allows the electrical heating of the front seats on passenger demand.
The components of the system are:
  • the seat heating elements located in the seat cushion and backrest.
  • the heated seat control switch, located on the seat side trim panel.
  • temperature sensors located in the seat cushion heating elements.
  • heated seat relay.
Do both front seat heaters not work ? Do you know how to test electrical circuits with voltmeter ?
PINPOINT TEST J: THE HEATED SEAT IS INOPERATIVE Test Step Result / Action to Take J1 CHECK HEATED SEAT SWITCH OPERATION
  • Key in ON position.
  • Press the heated seat switch on the driver and passenger seats.
  • Are both heated seat switch indicators illuminated?
Yes
If both indicators illuminate, Go To Pinpoint Test K . If only one indicator illuminates, GO to J5 .

No
GO to J2 . J2 CHECK THE HEATED SEAT RELAY CIRCUITS
  • Key in OFF position.
  • Disconnect: Heated Seat Relay C3250 (located under the driver seat).
  • Key in ON position.

  • Is the resistance less than 5 ohms?
Yes
INSTALL a new heated seat switch. TEST the system for normal operation.

No
REPAIR circuit 57 (BK). TEST the system for normal operation It's not that simple , being a fuse . It's probably the relay or the heating element .

2002 Trailblazer heated seats won't work


First check circuit breaker #8 and fuse #19 in the rear fuse panel. If these are OK, you will have to troubleshoot the seat heaters themselves (loose connector, broken wires, defective heater coil, etc.)

The driver's side heated seat won't turn off on my 2003 Mecury Moutaineer. Also, how do I change my cabin filter?


Your vhicle build date is on a blue sticker on the driver door or door frame. If not there, check other doors.
The heated seat Module is under the seat. You can unplug the connector on it or the heated seat switch to shut it off. I supect the module is bad. get one used from car-parts.com. The cabin air filter is under the leaf screen at the base of the windshield. Remove wiper arms and leaf screen for access. Please rate, thanks. Principles of Operation - Heated Seats - Vehicles Built 03/2002 Onward
NOTE: Two heated seat modules are used, one for vehicles built up to 03/2002 and one for vehicles built 03/2002 onward. The modules are not interchangeable.
The driver and passenger heated seats share a common battery and ignition feed. A shared ground source supplies the heated seat control switches. When the heated seat control switch is pressed with the ignition switch in RUN or START, a momentary ground signal is sent to the heated seat module. The heated seat module then supplies power to the heating element circuit. The cushion element and seat backrest element are wired in series and powered by the same output. The heated seat module also will ground the separate indicator circuit at the dual automatic temperature control (DATC) module display panel to indicate an ON state. The heated seat module will remain on until the heated seat control switch is pressed and a momentary voltage signal is received, or until 10 minutes expire. If the ignition source is removed from the module, the heated seat module will enter an OFF state and will not return to ON until the switch is once again pressed with the ignition switch in RUN. The heated seat module is designed to heat the seat to 37.5?C (99.5?F) and maintain the temperature until time-out or switched off. This temperature is maintained by the heated seat module monitoring the temperature sensor located in the seat cushion element, and adjusting the current flow to the heating elements.

The heated seats stopped working.


It could be a fuse or possibly a burnt element altho Ive never really heard of one doing it on both sides at once when it was an element.There is a reset button on some under the hood on the drivers side I believe.

Heated seats dont work what to look for?


If the buttons light up when you turn them on then the fuse is good.What usually happens is the element of the heater part burns or break and the heater will not work.This is a 2 part heater.One for the back and one for the bottom.If one goes neither of them will work.You have to ohm both to see which one is bad and replace it.Usually the bottom because it takes the most abuse.If the light does not come on then check the fuses and check connections under the seat.Good luck.

Heated seats not working .Light is working and fuse has not blown


If the light and the fuse are good then you probably have a open in one of the heated elements.You need to ohm the upper then the lower heater elements to see which one is bad.The connectors are under the seat.

Fuse location


There is not a fuse listed for heated seats but fuse 16 is for heated mirrors and fuse 11 is power seats. i'm guessing one of those should also control the heated seats.
