Hello April,

My name is ***** ***** i'm an ASE Master technician. I will be assisting you with your vehicle today. I can send you all the wiring diagrams for your vehicle, but you will have to have a basic understanding of electronics. You have listed many problems that you are having with your vehicle. We will start with the first. The heated seats in your vehicle are much like the element in your oven. Basically, it is a controlled short. The element in the seat is grounded and you supply the power to the element (seat) through the switch which flows through a fuse. (In the case of short circuit or over amperage it will blow stopping the flow of voltage to the element.) The problem is most likely a blown fuse or a shorted heating element in the seat. Please let me know if you need the wiring diagram or if you like, for additional services, you can call me and I can try to talk you through it.

Thank you,

Chad
