Went out to start my car this morning......switched on the drivers heated seat and the damn thing is now working. That is pretty strange. I did nothing to it since our last conversation. Was there possibly some sort of delay that was necessary for the module to learn that the elements were now repaired??

I am not crazy, but the seat is working and it worked so far for a couple of hours this morning....looks like I am ok for now.

Default Heated drivers seat - repaired!!

I understand your frustration, but I just repaired mine (2 burned out elements towards the rear of the seat (not in the backrest). I used the pictures and information from: ROADRUNNER and 300SFLYER in this forum to track down and re-solder the disconnected element wires.

So I am writing to say thanks to them and help steer others with this dilema to seek out their advice and the pictures that clearly indicate where a "burn" spot can occur and how to spot them. It took me about 2 hours to peel back the butt cusion (without taking out the seat) track the wires down through the putty they use to keep the elements in place and find/repair the 2 very fine element wires back on. Presto, it worked. I did not need to mess around with ohms and readings as the brn spot(*) point to the area. As they said, normally in the seat not the back. Hope that helps.

Kevin
