I got a problem with my driver side heated seat (passenger side works) It worked fine this morning but stopped working this afternoon. Is there a fuse/relay/breaker or something for it? Does it have a temp sensor? sometimes on extended trips ill have it on and it gets hot then cools down then gets hot again kinda like its regulating temperature. Are there any kind of connectors under the seat i should check for tightness? if worse comes to worse can i just swap heating elements with the passenger seat?
Check the fuse, it may have blown. If not then you need to do some more testing of the circuit to find the problem. without electrical experience thought i dont think you would get too far. All you really need is a DVOM though.
As for swapping, no you cant. The heated seat element is sewn into the seat so it cant be removed

I can't stand having a cold @$$

How many fuses are there, one per seat? any relays?
What kind of testing?
Im leaning towards an electrical issue, not blown elements. it seems pretty strange that both elements in the driver seat would go at the exact same time.....Then again my luck is awesome like that.....
and that would figure that there is only a fuse for the passenger side! LOL
See my previous post. There is a fuse for both.
any thoughts on my previous post?
You could do it, but its questionable on if the current draw by the aftermarket and OEM match. I've been looking at those for my car, but I'm not sure I trust the whole thing. Also, I have cloth... Although they say it works for cloth.
Do you have power to the fuse? Check for 12v across the terminals in the fuse box, with the fuse pulled obviously. Aside from that, check for voltage at the switch, and possibly check for 12v at the harness under the seat. It is a possibility that the harness could have come unplugged.

I think i need to get myself a service manual with a wiring diagram (or if anybody has a link to one...hint hint, nudge nudge ) so i can see how the elements are wired up and a half way decent multi meter. If its not cold out this weekend ill fool around with it.
