Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** am a Cadillac master technician and I would be happy to assist you with this today.

So about 90% of the time this problem is a result of a failed seat heater pad, but there are a few other possibilities. If the passenger side is still working then we know our fuse/power circuits are still good. The next thing to check is the switch signal, to do this we need to measure the voltage at the seat heater pad, if there is voltage then we know the switch is still good and it is the heater pad that has failed
