    Heated seats not working

    Ever since I got my car, my heated seats haven't worked. I planned on taking the car to the dealer to have them work on it because of the recall with those heated seats, but mine wasn't applicable (2002 GLS 1.8T w/ leather). So I'm asking here, why wouldn't my seats be working? What fuse controls the seats? (actually, if anyone has an accurate fuse chart, please send it to me)

    Any info would be appreciated.

    A couple other reasons the seat heaters may not be working:
    1. Heat elements burned out.
    2. Heat seater switches bad.

    But if both seats are out (bottom seat cushions and back seat cushions), it sounds more like a fuse issue.

    They should only take a 1-2 minutes to get toasty.

    But make sure you check the fuse first. Whenever something electrical breaks down you should check the fuse first. On the fuse box it will be the very bottom right fuse 30Amp (green).
