Without finding, replacing the bad element, whether it's botto m or seatback, it won't work anymore. To check that the seat works, turn the key on then press the heated seat button. I installed heated leather seats in my 2012 earlier this year. However, it could not be nearly as hard as installing a factory rear seat entertainment center in a 2010 Dodge Caravan yes I did it. This posting will be about the 2004 Buick LeSabre Limited System Wiring Diagrams especially for the heated seat circuit. I have this vehicle and have trouble keeping the seat heater working for more than a minute for several resets.
As for the heated seat. In this 2004 Buick LeSabre Limited System Wiring diagrams you will see some components includes: Driver heated seat switch, interior lights systems, front passenger heated seat switch, driver door module, front passenger door module, door lock system, Driver heated seat module, front passenger heated seat module, driver heated seat cushion element, passenger heated seat cushion element, rear integration module. Owners should: customers looking to find out if their vehicle is included in this Buick Regal recall should visit recalls. Again, I will update step 5, Thanks for the questions. The switch indicator light still comes on when the switch is activated but no heat follows.
The drivers side heated seat does not work. There is also a wiring diagram included with this post, and the only inputs to the seat heating control module is Data and +12 volts. Similarly, drivers seat often moves itself as far forward as possible. The control module is part of the drivers seat. In my case, the bucket seats were held in place with two bolts in the rear. I started a tear from the power inputs and worked my way across where I found the broken element sections.
Recently, my 2003 Buick Rendezvous, heated seats just stopped working. Make sure you discuss how much they plan to charge you up front, and get it in writing. It can happen twice in a two-week period of time and then not happen for a year. If you need to replace a blown fuse in your Regal, make sure you replace it with one that has the same amperage as the blown fuse. Could this be the problem, or could it be something else? General Motors is recalling the midsize luxury sedan over a condition with a wiring harness that could result in a fire. All information on this website is supplied free of charge, in good faith and without warranty.
You have to take off the knobs like you say but you also have to take off the plastic plate I think. In response to this signal, the seat heating control module applies battery positive voltage through the element supply voltage circuit to the appropriate seat heating elements. You will be greeted by an held to the seat by velcro. It has an intermittent problem with the horn. However, if I am getting the click and the switch lights up, then I assume I need to troubleshoot the element like imsittinginyourchair suggests. For more detailed body wiring diagrams showing the routing of the wires and the location of the switches, connectors and retaining clips — see Section G of the Buick Body Service Manual.
There may also need to be a computer update. See figures 10-73 and 74. The drivers heated seat does not heat even though the light on the control switch is lit. I think this got more complex after the 2013 model year. Thx for info I was able to remove bottom section of drivers seat all electrical including heated seat module checked out ok issue must be in the heating element which looks to be sewn into the leather cover which is different from others that I've worked on best option may be to find replacement junk yard I have 1998 Buick Park Avenue Ultra. Load Management The electrical power management function is designed to monitor the vehicle electrical load and determine when the battery is potentially in a high discharge condition.
Also, if it is a module, where is it? If you're getting the right voltage then the seat heating element is bad or you have a bad ground - remember there are two elements - one in the seat bottom and the other in the back. I have to wait 30 seconds or so before I can hear the click again when I turn it back on. I didn't really get a good picture of this part as i had already preformed the repair. That was the nice thing about working on my Dodge van, they have a website that displays every pin out for every plug on the car. I'm really surprised that those wires are not insulated to begin with, I guess the seat foam acts as the insulation? However, most of the terminals have a flat push-pull type connector. Good fuses, switch, but no power.
A hard steady pull on the terminal is required to detach it from the socket. Continuous flexing of the driver side more use than any causes the wires to break in the left and right thigh areas. Thanks Hello, The system is amazingly simple they have a fuse a switch and a control module. The temperature sensor is a variable resistor, it's resistance changes as the temperature of the seat changes. Both outside mirrors move themselves even when switch is centered, usually rolling as far up as possible, and to either side. The lack of information on the wiring harness is what I am worried about. With the pin-outs, I could tell what is supposed to plug in where.
