Re: heated seat not working

Unfortunately I didn't take any pics ( NOTE FOR EXT TIME)but it really is dead easy. Peel back the cover on the seat base. its a little awkward but it will peel back, start at the front of the seat. You should now see the foam seat base in all its glory. The heating eliment is the grey felt like material. Push your hand between this and the foam seat. Right at the back of the seat you should feel the small sensor with wires on it. just take hold of it and pull it up gently. . This is usually where the wire breaks. Just reconnect the wires with solder or some kind of terminals.. After this recover the seat and thats it done. Takes about 15mins to do the whole job. P.S the seat cover is held down with Velcro in the grooves. Make sure you seperate them as you peel the cover back and dont just pull it away from the foam rubber.

Re: heated seat not working

Had the same problem and tried your solution. It indeed was a broken wire. The worst part was peeling back the cover, also forgot about the Velcro, but looking OK again and working. THANK YOU so much! Living above polar circle so heated seat is quite a necessity.
