    Default The heated seat saga continues (04 GT2)

    Hey guys hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year with your families.

    I finally got around to unboxing and installing the replacement heater control module and to my chagrin, appears I paid $100 just to have backlights on the gauges again because the problem with the driver side heated seat persists.

    The heated seats work fine for a good 15 minutes and then the driver side stops working. The passenger side appears to work indefinitely. Granted, I inherited a lot of electrical Gremlins from the previous owner but at this point do you think the issue is inside the actual seat somewhere? Would I be better off just finding an entire seat assembly replacement from a junkyard because the previous owner was a really big guy in the driver's seat is kind of worn out anyway

    It wouldn't shock me if there is a thermal cutout causing the heater to shut off.

    stealthee thanks! Now that you mention it, the driver side heated seat does get abnormally hot as I have seen others in this forum mention. It was kind of a process of elimination. You think the next logical place to check is probably within the actual seat assembly, huh?
