Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.

Is it both of the front seats that do it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No just the driver seat

I see, thanks. That could just be the heater element drawing too much current and the module shutting it off, however the tests would have to be done, (with a scan tool) to be sure.

If you accept my additional service request for your email address, you can give me your email in a private info box and I'll send you the tests and instructions in a PDF file, the file is rather large.

You will just have to accept the additional service offer and ENTER your email address in the “ENTER CONTACT INFO” section so that I can see it. Thanks
