My drivers side heated seat works great, but my passenger seat doesn't work at all. What could be wrong with it? The switch seems to function fine.


Does anyone have any trouble shooting suggestions? I'd like to check to see if the seat heating element gets any power when I turn it on. But I don't know which connection to check at the seat. If it's got power, the heating element it's self is probably bad. I have no idea how to replace that though.

Are there individual fuses for each seat? Where are they located? I'll try checking out the switch with a meter, do they just pop put?

There is only one fuse for the switches...its very easy to switch the switches...if you have a standard trans, just remove the boot around the shifter and you can just pop out the switches and swap them...gotta be similiar for the automatics

Yes there is only one fuse for each seat. It is in the fuse box under the hood. There is a list of what each fuse is under the lid. If i remember right it was like fuse 22 or somthing.
