Default Drivers side seat heater.

My drivers side seat heater does not work. When i press the switch it will light up for about 2 seconds then turn off and it never warms up. If its not the switch how much will it cost at a shop to have them rebuild or replace the heated seat? the passsenger sides does work though. i have an 02 bonne.

Sounds like there might be a break in the trace wire for one or more of the heating pads. But, there'* too many variables to really make a true diagnosis on what might be happening here. As far as cost'* go, take t by a dealer and get a quote...as far as i know they don't charge for quotes...yet!

Mine did the same thing. it was a faulty heated seat element. You will have to replace it.
