Heated seats not working... Not your average heated seat peoblem

So my heated seats stopped working but it's not your average topic... Most or all topics I've seen show that the lights turn on for a minute then turn off but mine don't even turn on at all... I don't have warranty anymore so it's not like if I can take it to the dealership... Anybody had this and fixed it?

you might have to dig some more but i believe others have had the same issue and it turns out the wiring inside the seat had to be fixed/replaced. do you know any local upholstery shops nearby that could possibly remove the seat covers and look?

I've seen that solution but I think it's the solution when the lights on the heated seats button lights up... Mine doesn't do that, wonder if it's the same fix but I'd like to see if anyone has had the same problem before I take off my seats... Yea there's an upholstery shop

silly q but did you check all the fuses(s)? also make sure the plug under the seat did not get dislodged due to murphy.


Good luck!

Yea I thought about the fuses thing too but wouldn't know which one it is... I'll check it out after work...

Also, come to think bout it a while back I had a full auto detail... Maybe these guys didn't connect it right even though my seats are working

My driver's heater stopped working also. It was posted here with photos how a
wire under the seat gets pinched causing the failure. An easy fix as I remember
after the seat is removed. I have moved to Florida so not a concern for me now.

Im having the same issue. I checked the fuse and it was fine (#35 under the hood) I havent checked the connections underneath but what are the chances of that happening to both seats?!

Is there any other fuses for the heated seats? I read the manual and only found that 1

Compare the ohm reading on a good seat with a bad seat, If they're different suspect the heating element.

I checked the fuzes and connector too... They seem fine. And just like u, I thought to myself what are the chances of both sets of wires get burned out... I have yet to remove my seats, time hasn't allowed me to try and diagnose the wiring on 5he back of the seats... Might just try and unzip them from the back without removing them see if I see burnt wires... Let me know if u find a solution

It was pretty easy to remove seats. I took them out to clean carpet. As I recall: d/c battery, one bolt on each seat slider on the rear side, pickup and slide back an inch or two, unplug the wires and they come right out. I don’t know anything about the heaters though

UPDATE: So I went ahead and removed my seats, checked wiring and everything looked good... Put my seats back and now the heated seats are working... I'm thinking the connection was somehow not connected right? Don't really know but my wires weren't burned... Thought I'd update u guys
