Q: 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 eventually causing them to break. I would recommend that you get help from a mechanic to inspect the heater grid in the seat cushion and so that you can move on to a repair.
