More Service Troubles: 1 Solved + 2 New Problems

Hello fellow enthusiasts.
You may remember my last thread about my local dealer taking 5 seperate visits to solve my problem of noise coming from the "heater core inlet valve."

Well..... less than a week goes by and now I had to make another trip to the dealer with 2 new problems. I felt my HVAC unit was making more noise than usual, as I could hear the fan spinning when it was on. I never heard this before. And to top that off, my heated seat on my drivers seat stopped working. The lights would stay on for a minute or so, then just turn off by itself.

So i brought it into the dealer for repairs. To sum up the 2-day ordeal.... they are clueless about the heated seats, and they replaced the "blower motor." But now, the HVAC "spinning" i hear is even louder than before.

Am I being too picky here? Does anyone else hear the fan spinning under their dash with the HVAC on?? I expect it to be quiet, as it was last winter.
Am I expecting too much???

sit in a new one, and yours, with the service rep, and listen. If not the same, there is and issue.

And make a quality recording of both cars from the drivers seat.

The heated seat control module is under the front of the driver's seat. Make sure the harness is firmly seated. My passenger seat did what you describe and seating the harness resolved it last winter.

Not so much a "whine", but literally hearing the fan spinning. Just like a noisy computer fan. And it gets faster as you turn up the HVAC speed. Very annoying. I can hear it through my music and even the engine noise.
