Heated seats not working?

I have the two buttons on the dash for heated seats but when I push them nothing happens on both sides. I don't have an owners manual yet so can someone give me the fuse location and number so I can check the fuse and also if someone has another idea while I'm checking this it would be appreciated.

There's a power distribution module in the trunk (between battery and rear trunk wall). Heated seats are a 30A pink colored fuse in cavity #5.

These are also controlled by the Body Control Module - most items run through a CanBus controller. Sends a signal to the controller, and it turns the module on.

There's also a seat heater module as well. Also, check the electrical connectors (there was a service bulleting to zip-tie wires to seat frame) to make sure something hasn't un-plugged.

Barring all that, it the fuse checks out okay and no disconnneted wires, the dealer would need to diagnose to see if there isn't a faulty module causing no heat in both sides as you describe.

Fuse is good. Thanks for the info. I'll be digging a little deeper tomorrow on the modules for loose wiring.

Most with this trouble found the plug under the seat came unplugged; thus the zip tie service bulletin (something you can do yourself).

First off myself and at least one other (who advised me on my outage post) to just not worry about it and try it the next day. Sure enough both worked for me. Two weeks or so ago I had mine off the lift for a Winter warm up and neither worked. Today I had it down again and both worked. So if you try again tomorrow and all is fine we have some kind of intermittent condition lurking.

Will do. I will check in the morning.

I just got the car off the truck yesterday evening. They didn't work then and they didn't work this morning so I wouldn't call mine intermittent yet.

I just found that my washer fluid line going to the squirters on the hood is major crimped where the hood closes on the pass side. It must've got caught in the hinge. Stupid looking design but what do I know.

thanks for the tip on the fuse box. Not used to looking in the trunk. Mine doesn't have a spare tire so I think that if I were going aftermarket on the stereo I could put an amp right there. It's like the perfect audio situation with the rear battery.

Why wouldn't you take it down to the dealer and tell them to fix it?

I'm not one to overburden the dealer with minor things that I can do myself.
