My mom just informed me that their driver seat heater no longer works...and that there's a scorch mark on the seat, too. I didn't look at it, but I am pretty sure this thread will help me in the repair...if I feel inclined to offer my assistance Wink

Awesome, just fixed mine. I didn't remove the seat, and it took me about half an hour without anyone helping (though the soldering would have been easier with someone to help hold back the seat cover).

You can see the burn mark on the leather in this picture:


There was a lot of burnt foam on mine:


I had to go up a ways to get a piece of wire that wasn't burnt:

Though it's been a while since anyone posted to this thread, I just wanted to thanks the previous posters who gave me the impetus to fix my heated seat rather than pay the shop $600-700 to do it.

On my 2002 Impala it was the passenger seat. I had to take the whole seat out of the car to work on it but that really wasn't that difficult. After that it was a snap; especially with the guidance and pictures previous posters had provided.

Again, thanks guys.

Dan

Well unfortunatley for me, my problem is on the bottom side and not the back. After tearing the seat out and moving the back cover up to expose where I thought the problem was it was not there. I then unfastened the bottom cover and found that it was broken and had burned the bottom cushion. This was not an issue that I had seen posted here before. The only thing I can attribute this to is my wallet is way to fat and it put excess pressure on the bottom cushion. It is broken right where my fat wallet and rear end would be position on the cushion. New bottom and back heated covers along with a new bottom cushion are $900. My car has 302K on it now and I wonder if it is really worth that kind of money to have my heated seats back. I could just replace the bottom but then the back and bottom would not match. Anybody out there know of a used neutral (tan) heated seat cover for sale?

Check the local scrapyards and/or www.car-part.com

I'm sure you can find a single Heater leather seat for less than 900.

I think I have the same thing going on with my 04 ss. Call me stupid, but:

Quote:
1. Tip the seat as far forward as it will go, reach underneath the seat back, and unzip/unhook the seat cover closure. If you have trouble, make sure your lumbar support is at its minimum setting. Have a friend push on the front of the seat in the lumbar area to loosen the tension on the cover if necessary.


Is this the plastic strip that hooks onto a metal strip, on the back? If it is, how do you get this thing off? If not, then I'm in the completely wrong area. Sad

Yeah, this is where I'm at. I'm having a problem figuring out how to undue the seat cover for the back.

My heated seat never worked on my 01 since I got it almost 7yrs ago. finally decided to tear into it. I had checked the wiring/switch/relay out years ago, and thought it was all good. Anyway, the wiring is perfectly fine on my seat bottom. No burns, tears, or weak wires. However, I did notice mine has 4 wires, while the pic just shows 2. Or is the problem in the seat back? Couldn't quite tell from pix where the problem was but took it to be the seat, not that back.
