Default Heated Seat Malfunction

Hey guys! It's been a while!

So, my '02 has factory heated seats, which I use from time to time, since my morning commute is so short that I rarely actually get heat on my drive when it's especially cold out. However, I never noticed that the drivers seat wasn't working right until, on a recent road trip to DC, I was in the passenger side and realized that the back and the butt are supposed to warm up together! On the driver's side, only the back part heats, not the butt part. On a possibly related note, there is a small tear in the leather on the butt part of the driver's seat. Related?

I don't suspect a fuse or relay, since the back part works ok and the switch gets power. I took a quick glance under the seat, but I didn't see anything unplugged or obviously wrong.

What are some things I can check? I don't want to accidentally set off the crash sensor while I'm down there foolin' around.

Thanks y'all!

Cool Re: Heated Seat Malfunction

There is probably a break in the heating pad. Not sure that the break can be repaired.

seat heating pads look like this: seat heater

if you can find the wire, should be some sort of plug, you can test for continuity.
