Heated Seat Question

I have a new to me 06 F250 Lariat with heated leather seats. I know now is a wierd time to ask a question about this, seeing that its 106 degrees here as I type this, but I would like to see if anyone can help.

How warm are the seats supposed to get?

How long should they take to get warm?

I have tested them on a high 60 degree morning, and the light on the button comes on, but I dont really notice and warmth coming from the seat. My fiances 03 Monte Carlo seats warm up quick, and they get pretty warm, but I'm not familiar with the SD heated seats.

Are the seat bottoms and backs heated or just the bottoms?

If the light is on, and I'm not getting any heat, what problems should I look for?

Any help would be great, since when fall and winter finally get here I'm gonna want to use them.

My 04 manual shows a fuse/relay at position 109 in the fuse block. Not sure if the light would still come on. I read where older Fords had 2 fuses for the seat, but I don't see that on mine.

Here is somewhat of a thread, but it is about 2008, but gives some ideas. I know I have seen a thread with a write up on how one person's seats failed and fixed the connection at the pad, but I am having a difficult time finding it.

one heated seat not working - Diesel Forum - TheDieselStop.com

Also a good read on heated seats:

Heated seat indicators - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

(I did do the lights on the console too. I love them!)

Oh, I used these lights for indicators:


"While I was screwing around, went ahead and installed LEDs for heated seats. Right where Benchwrench placed His. I did find some orange ones though. They also had Red and Green. These were found in the second drawer at Radio Shack part#276-0272. (these were a tad bigger, took a 9/32 pilot hole)"

That was from my post:

I installed a heated mirror switch - Page 3 - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

Another question I had, turns out that neither drivers nor passenger heated seat are working in my truck.

The lights come on but no heat.

It is now cooler here with lows in the low 50s so surely if one or the other was working I should feel something now.

Is there anything else that I can check prior to tearing into the seats and looking for broken connections as described in the link posted above?

Thanks!!

Have you checked the heater control module?

I know your truck is much older, but the principle should be similar. Found this pic in another thread somewhere from an '06:



Seeing that the module is nothing more than a relay; I'd try to find the wires to each individual pad, and check continuity with a multi-meter. Since the pads are in series, checking continuity at the switch wont tell you which one is bad. Good luck with your fix.
