Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Most likely these issues are not related. This is going to take some electrical diag to figure out using the links below. Can you do electrical diag?

Hi Moose,
Thanks for the diagrams... I've purchased my Yukon new and one day I noticed that the rear hvac wasn't working. Upon further review, I noticed that the heated seats were not working either. After checking fuses, switches, and relays, I gave up. That said, the diagram, you sent me depicted fuse IGN 3. My vehicle did not have a fuse in that shot. Not sure why a fuse would go missing but I replaced it and it blew. I am pretty good with electronic trouble shooting; but getting in behind things without breaking items is a completely different story. The IGN 3 fuse feeds both control systems. She page 2 of the heated seat. See page 6 of the Hvac. I'm not sure if it needs any other. No, I want to isolate the systems by disconnecting one at at a time. Where is the auxiliary blower motor resistor relay assembly located. I assume the solid state devices are the switches on the doors. How do I remove these things without tearing up everything?
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 3 months ago.

To isolate IGN3 unplug the heated seat switch., rear HVAC control in rear center console, rear temp and mode door actuators also in the console.
