Question Heated Seats problem..

So when I press my driver side heated seat switch, it turns on and then a second later it will cut right back. I am NO kind of rush to get the heated seats fixed just yet in the middle of July but I would like to hear some input from you guys.

You've got a short in the heating element for the seat. There is a tracer wire that run through the grid and it if sees a ground or fault, it shuts down the seat.

You'll need to pull the seat out, pull off the upholstery, find the problem and repair or replace.

Mine turned out to be a broken wire and a bad module.
