    Default Passenger heated seat not heating

    The heated seat on my Elite has stopped getting hot.
    The switch appears to work (yellow light comes on when switch is set to 1+).

    I'm going to check the connections, but realistically, is there anything else that it could be? The drivers side one works fine.

    Thanks.

    Also check fuse to seat relay and the relay itself. You may have power going to the switch and away from the switch, but the switch will not carry the power to the element.

    is there a pressure switch on the seat? i.e. it has to be occupied for it to work?

    Im not so sure dan, my leather wont heat up unless seat occupancy sensor is activated which would suggest it does work from pressure switch.

    I am sure they are black relays in the rear fusebox. One for fronts and one for rears (if you have them).
