Talking Newbee here

Hi Group..

I just found this forum and need to ask a question or two. I purchased a 2010 Fusion SEL back in March after a deer totaled my 2008 Nissan Altima 3.5SL. The Fusion is a great car with 122K on the clock and is loaded with just about everything. I'm having a problem with the heated driver seat (always the driver side isn't it?). When I push the dash button to initiate the heating,the button lights for about three seconds then turns off. The passenger side works as it should. What should I check/look for?
Thanks for any and all replies!



Jim

I have had customers with the same problem on other cars. The first thing I do is reach under the seat with gloves on and flash light for protection...hahaha and see what is under there and also to locate the seat control harness and examine it. I may even dis connect and reconnect it just because I am there at this point anyway. Unless there car belong to a car enthusiast we all know that many things accumulate and some things even grow under the drivers seats of car.....

You have a split in the heating element, check out this thread. You should read the entire thread, but my posts start at # 16, and show how to repair it in the follow up posts.
