Anyone? ....Anyone?.....Bueller??

I assume the seat elements are one big loop, and I should be able to test for continuity between one end and the other across a connector somewhere, right? No resistance = broken element, right? Or is there something in the middle I'm missing? Not sure how to test if the modules are bad. The FSM is helpful, but not everyone owns a tech2. Which in this case, would figure out the issue in about 30 seconds.
So, I may end up at the mercy of a dealer on tuesday. Lucky me. I'll start stretching so I can assume the usual position when I show up asking for a diagnostic test.

Ok, I give up.

I put in a Homedics massage cushion with heat. It sucks, it doesn't fit the seat right, and the straps go over the side seat airbag. Oh well. When you have mornings like yesterday in the -15 range, gotta make do. I ain't giving the dealer $100 for 30 seconds of their time just because they have a $5000 piece of equipment that I don't.
Maybe I can get around to actually figuring out whats wrong when it isn't freezing rain, dumping 6 inches of snow out, or -15 degrees out. Unless anyone has any better ideas. Being in upstate NY with leather seats, a bad back, and driving 45 minutes - an hour each way to work.. you kinda need heat.
Besides, my local dealer service writers are complete jerkoffs. Parts guys couldn't be nicer. The SWs just don't want to see me because they know I have a clue about my own car, and can't scam me into crap I don't need. I hate dealers. None of the independents around here have access to a Tech2. Said they couldn't help me out. Ugh.
