2005 Ford: Heated seats..lights come..cushion on the driver side seat

Resolved Question:

Heated seats on 2005 Ford Five Hundred will not heat. Both switch lights come on. I replaced the seat mat/cushion on the driver side seat about a year ago.

Good morning, will either seat heater work at all?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No neither one is working, but the light comes on and stays on.

There are three fuses I'd like you to check, do you have a test light available?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

My husband can check them, where do I get a test light from?


Expert:  connor75 replied 7 years ago.
Any autoparts store will work, the fuses are fuse 23 in underwood fuse box, and fuse 19 in the inside fuse box. The fact that the lights are coming on tells me that the fuses are good and that we have again, I know you replaced a pad sometime before, but I really feel we have to pad issues here, one on passenger and one on the driver side. The pads are wired in series like the old christmas tree light, one bulb goes out none work type of circuit. Therefore if the driver side upper or lower pad is open while the other is completely fine it won't work, same on passenger side.Just to be sure though, check those two fuses.
