    Default drivers heated seat

    hi all

    yet another problem with the 3.2 elite, drivers seat this time no heater!!!
    light comes on the dash switch but no heat from pads, what i want to know is how to check for voltage at the seat, and continuity of the elements, what i dont want to do is accidently unplugging the air bag connectors or set off the pre-tensioners
    so any help please

    I had this after hitting a pot hole at speed, just check the connectors under your seat- mine had come loose.

    I had this with my 52 plate elite & it was the heater pad that was at fault .
    I stripped the seat out & tested the heater pads with a multimeter , found the bottom one was open circuit so set about tracing & repairing the fault with the help of a test light & a battery charger .
    once the faulty part was located I bypassed a 1.5 inch section of heater pad with a piece of wire & soldered it in , put the seat back together & its been fine since .
