heated seat

I have a 00 7.3l x. the driver side heated seat does not get hot. the light does turn on but nothing but cold buns. My brother in law has the exact same rig and he has the same problem...any suggestions.

Check all the wires and connections going up to the seat heater, you probably have a broken or shorted wire after almost 8 years of use.

Did you by chance find the problem with your EX's seat heater? My '01 drivers seat isn't working either.

I'll start by checking out the wires...

I'm guessing there might also be a fuse that might be shot as well. hmm, I'll have to look and see.

I didnt get mine working yet either. I did check all of my wires and all look connected and in good shape. I spoke with some one at the dealer ship and they said it could be the coil and they thought that you had to replace the whole seat. I did not persue it with them.

I found the same thing. About 380 to replace the elements in the seat and the cushion. For now I'm living with it.

Heating element

Anyone aware of an aftermarket heating element, I would thing the process could be done with some work and possibly the help of an upholstery shop?

This seems to be comon problem for the 2000-2001 models.

I have searched this topic before, but maybe this time someone with some more knowledge will come through with a cheeper option than $350?

Any ideas on where we could get ahold of a schematic of the seat or an exploded view maybe?

I will be the test dummy and do a writeup if we can find a heating element for around $100-$150 not including maybe $50 more for some minor upholstery?

Even the wiring diagram of the seat & heating element would do as we could locate a similar element (voltage & amp wise) and I could take it from there "project hot cheeks" ?

Say's the guy from a warm weather climate in Mexifornia....

I suppose you would never plug your diesel in either.....not something a MAN would do?

My wife's *** is pretty hot without the heated seat, and I like to keep it that way when it's -20 in the dead of winter!

Ha, yeah, and I don't mind the cold either, but the warm is sure nice.

And yes, my WIFE does Drive her EX all the time.

I would love to get it fixed, and to be honest, I could use some new seat cushions, but for now I'm just going to live with it. Maybe this fall we'll look into it again.
