used seat heater
Hey guys, I started work on my in-op seat heaters today and found that at least in my passenger seat, there is one of the elements that has gone bad. I found the burned looking spots in a circle around the element and the wire broken. The wires to it were ok. I am curious if anyone has tried to remove an element from an old seat and make it work in mine. I thought if I could get it out in one piece I might be able to glue it in place of the old one.
On a second note, my driver'* side lower seat cushion has good ohms through all the elements. I am assuming that the problem must be in the back rest even though you guys say that the lower seat cushion is much more likely. How do I get the cover off of the back in one piece to find the problem?
On a completely seperate note, My fuel gauge is highly erratic and most of the time ends up on full even though it is not full. Will come down to approx. where it is suppossed to be and then quickly go back up. Any common problems to look for first or is this new?
