Heated Seats not working

2nd day in a row, my heated seats button won't let me turn them on and the Ipod took 3 tries before it linked
is anyone getting this problem with the heated seats?

Our passenger heated seat works intermittently. Most of the time you press the button and it lights up for about a second and then shuts off. Sometimes it works fine. We're just living with it until we have to have the car in for service for something else. It seems like a wiring issue, but jiggling the wires under the seat doesn't make any difference. Sometimes sliding the seat back and forth makes it work.

I have the same problem with my passenger seat on the SS. It comes on for about a minute then shuts off. I took it in on a weekend and the dealer said yep it's broke ...LOL... I have to take it back during the week so they can contact the GM Tech Support. My 2LT works great without any issues, good thing because that's the wife's car ...

Ok. Now I'm subscribing to this thread. Please report back on what they find and what it takes to repair.

Thanks!

About a month ago, driver side seat kicks off after about 30-45 seconds....never gets warm. Doesn't matter what setting...two lights or one. Passenger side works like a champ. Taking the beast in next week while I'm out of town to get that looked at along with my rice krispy noise making glove box...been like that since day one. I know there is a TSB for that. Plus, seaping a little oil....appears to be from the oil cooler....another TSB for that too.

Even with these little issues, this car has been pure evil pleasure.

Sounds like a warranty issue. My works every time, no complaints.

Bump to see if SlingShot or Grinder19 made it into the shop this week. I'm curious to know what the fix is for the heated seat issue.

I've heard of a few members having similar problems.. I haven't had an issue yet, thank God but you aren't the only one!

Actually, I dropped the car off Tuesday while I left town for a business trip. Can't tell you what is wrong because they refused to work on it because I modified my car. Evidently putting headers and NOWEEDS voided the warranty. Mind you, NOWEEDS does tap into the wiring harness for the drivers seat but only grabs power from the seat motor. The two wires out of the oh, 40+ in that harness are hot all the time....heated seat requires the ignition on.

So, I'll pick up my car Friday when I get back, then make some calls to other Chevy dealers in my area and conduct an interview with them to see if they'll take an honest look at it. The other dealer I'm working stated that the mechanic saw new wires under the car (NOWEEDS) and that was my problem. Being I was on a lay-over in Atlanta, I didn't have much time to explain the wiring composition of this item....and to inquire what type of troubleshooting he did to come to that conclusion. See, the fact is I installed it and I'm pretty intimate with the wiring to the seat. Don't think it wouldn't matter talking to them about it since my 20+ yrs of aircraft maintenance doesn't translate to cars. Suppose repairing aircraft wiring is much more simplistic that automotive wiring. Sorry for the rant/vent....I just can't stand incompentency.

Dude, that sucks! I hope you can find someone that will troubleshoot it before dismissing it.

No, I haven't needed to use them yet. I did accidentally turn the drivers seat heat on once while adjusting the air flow controls. Not I know what it feels like to be a fried egg - it got pretty hot and took a long time to cool down...
