Usually when this happens it's because of the heating element inside the seat. It's really not hard to remove the seat cover to replace the element, but it's a little time consuming.

1. Disconnect negative battery cable (or be prepared to have your airbag light reset)
2. Remove the four bolts holding the seat frame to the floor of the car and remove the seat.
3. Remove the four screws holding the plastic side shield onto the side of the seat.
4. Remove the four screws holding the inboard shield on, and also the screw holding the seatbelt buckle on.
5. If you lift up on the seat cover on the sides, you'll see two front bolts and two rear bolts (on each side). Remove these four bolts to remove the seat bottom from the seat frame.
6. There's a "J" shaped hook holding the front of the seat cover onto the seat cushion. Look underneath the cushion. Release that hook, and pull the cover back.
7. You may have hog rings. You'll need to cut the hog rings to remove the seat cover. It will help if you get a hog ring tool and you'll need some new hog rings. Pull the cover off, and you'll have access to the heating element.

For the seat back, remove any side shields and tracks that are in the way, release the "J" hooks, and pull the cover off the cushion. The same principle applies with the hog rings.

Hog rings are really quite simple. Do a quick google search to become familiar with them.

Before you do that, put an ohmeter on the good and bad seat elements to be sure that's what it is.
