Heated Seats Won't Turn Off

I just purchased a 2004 F350 CC LB (gorgeous truck BTW) and realized the heated seats were not working. Found out the switch connectors on both seats had been unplugged. Naturally, I plugged them in and now the won't turn off; both seats. They are on all the time unless I disconnect the seat switch or fuse. I'm baffled because whatever this problem is affects both seats. Any ideas?

Is that what you had to do? It just seemed odd that both switches are bad?

ZMANN, thank you for the link. It appears that the Battery Junction Box is hot all the time and is the only link between the driver and passenger seat modules.

John038, I bought my truck from Florida which explains why the previous owner just unplugged them instead of trying to fix them. Now, its my problem. I had a 2004 Excursion and didn't have this problem. I don't know if it is the switches. I'm playing the odds that two switches are bad at the same time vs. a single wiring issue.
