    Hey guys,

    My drivers side heated seat worked for my wife one time, and now.. nothing. Think it's just the module http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-OEM-For...ash=item3a802fcadf:g:d1MAAOSw0vBUdiH6&vxp=mtr?

    I have never had heated seats, so I don't know much about them. The module kind of spendy, and it would suck to buy it, and have that not be the problem. When I hit the button, the led lights up indicating it's on. Otherwise I have no more info.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    I would check the heating element part of the seat heater.
    Figure out which of the wires go to the inside the seat part of the heating element, put a ohm meter across the two wires leading into and out of the element.
    Should read low ohms, if it reads zero or no ohms the heating element is bad.
    Rather than spending those $123 bucks on a maybe fix just see if the heating element is good first.

    I can always count on you Roush. Thanks man! I'll check it out. Just out of curiosity, if it's the element, how much work is that to replace? Best to pull the seat, right?

    Depends on upholstery of the seat. Some easy some PITA.
    At the price you're facing an aftermarket seat heater may be cheaper.
