I've had this car for about a year now and it's time to finally figure out what is wrong with my heated seats. I've checked the fuses so far and they are fine. When touching the buttons on both sides the lights all flash once and that is it. Any ideas before I start blindly buying parts?

Here is what is looks like

I removed the front passenger seat without disconnecting the battery first.
Air bag light came on and only that seat wield not heat up anymore.
Bought a $15 Ebay airbag sensor reset tool. Worked and seat worked again.
I suggest disconnecting the battery. Disconnect the seats and spray them with electrical contact cleaner.
Reconnect the seats then plug the battery back in.
Might help...

I'm having the same issue with just my driver's side heated seat (passenger seat works fine).

Did the battery disconnect and contact cleaner work for you?
