Seat heater not working.

asked by on

Driver seat heater does not work.

Having an inoperative heated seat is not out of the ordinary. Most times the heater grid in the seat goes bad. Generally this happens over time just due to the fact that getting in and out of the seat flexes the grids and they eventually break. I would recommend that you ask for help from a mechanic to confirm that it is in fact the heater grid in the seat cushion and not another part of the heated seat system.
