Heated Seats Not Working

Ok finally got the opportunity to check this out. Turns out, I have power to both seats. Did a continuity test on the heating pads. Seat backs are good, seat bottoms are not. Pulled passenger seat cover off to find burnt wire in pad. Question is, is there a better, aftermarket pad that I could install that will last longer? Truck is only 5yrs old. Wifes monte Carlo is 8 yrs old and seats still work AWESOME in it. Or am I stuck with OEM heating pads? If so, anything I can do to protect them better so sliding/moving around on the seat doesnt cause the same problem in dealing with now?

Thanks for the help guys!

I fixed mine with a soldering iron a year ago and haven't had any problems since. I have a thread on here somewhere about it. If you allready have the cover off you are halfway there. Did you allready undo all the godforsaken hog rings?

Well, I did have the hog rings undone, but put it all back together since figured I wouldn't be getting around to fixing it anytime real soon. They are a HUGE pain in the arse!!

you can replace hog rings with small zip ties. Much easier to use.
