can anyone help me out? when i press the button for my heated-seat option for my passenger seat it just blinks green and off right away. it wont stay on, but on my driver side its working fine. does anyone know the particular problem to this? is it the wiring? might it be loose?

i'm not using it right now, but i will be soon in the winter. i just wanted to make sure before checking it out.

anyone?

thanks

ok guys...

i found out the problem... in fact i didn't even have a problem to begin with...

the passenger seat warmer will not turn on unless someone is sitting on it...

i learned something new... this doesn't apply with the driver seat.. only the passenger...

correct me if im wrong

Today I found out that I have the same problem as you but it's on the driver's seat. I press the button and the light blinks for an instant and shuts off (and I'm sitting on it)HELP :rolleyes:

that's true, it doesn't matter whether you're sitting or not. I press the button for the driver's seat, little green lights blink for an instant and then it shuts off. Is that a fuse?:dunno: Where is the fuse box??please help:cry:

actually....its possible, i mean like technology wise(lexus uses that kind stuff for the seatbelts.....starts blinkin when someone is sitting) but i doubt the seat warmers in our cars have it...

lol.... bring it to the dealers.... i dont think the car would know if anyone is sitting down or not.
My Toyota Celica had sensors in the front seats. They were very sensitive too. If I put a book down on the passanger seat w/o the belt buckled in, the seatbelt light would blink constantly...was pretty damn annoying.

Check under the seat for the connectors -- quite possibly they're a little loose, which would explain why it can sometimes work (esp. if someone's sitting on it). Unplug the connector, check for dirt, and reconnect; see if that fixes your problem.
