heated seat problem

ok so im lost now. i have a 05 ccsb kingranch and i just got the truck a couple of months ago and every now and then it feels like the heated seat would turn on. (feeling it on both front seats) i pulled the fuse and the button stopped working but i still feel the seat turning on. i pulled the relay under the driver seat and i still feel them turn on on a rare occasion (both seats) what else can i look for to fix this as im going to be wanting the heated seats when it starts getting cold out.
thanks in advance
mike

each heated seat has its own heated seat module so they are seperate from each other.if you pulled the plug to this module there is no way and i mean no way that the heaters in the seat and seat back can get any power unless someone spliced to them or they are shorting to power in another part of the seat.

i dont know of any module. i pulled the fuse and the relay under the front of the drivers seat. is that relay for the heated seat? im guessing that the modules are bad since i have the fuse pulled and they still get hot, am i right in thinking this.
thanks
mike

the heated seat use modules each seat will have one under it. if that is unhooked there is no way that they will heat unless the wire is shorted to power someplace

What does the module look like? Is it accessed from the front or rear of the seat?
Thanks

ok is the heated seat module the same that controlls the power seats? i unplugged the module on the front outside part of the seat and now the power seats stopped working. am i right in thinking that if this fixes my problem then i need a new module for the heat and power seat?
thanks for the help so far its not any fun heating my *** when its 102 out today.
i will know later if this fixed the heat from coming on.

Let us know what you find. Heated seats is about the only option my truck doesn't have so I cant help you by looking. But if that is the only module you find on your seat that has to be it. As stated; each seat should have it's own module.

Have you resolved your issue? I put heated seats in my truck but they are not working correctly. The modules and the seat adjustment controls are independent of each other. I have the heated seat modules. When I push the "on" button, the light flashes for just a second and goes out. I have switched the modules around but both do the same thing. Have traced the wires down but figure the only thing that is potentially bad is the modules. Thx
