Usually when the driver's seat fails it is due to a bad element, do you have heat on either the back or the bottom, or have you lost both?

Do the control lights come on for that seat when you turn it on?

Reply to Ted G.'s Post: Yes the light comes on when you push the button but nothing ever heats up. Is there something me or my husband can check without taking it to a dealer?
If you have a test light or a voltmeter you can find the plug under the seat for the heat elements (2 pins, usually a white connector) and make sure there is power there (pretty good chance there is) and if so, one or both of the elements has failed. This will require disassembling the seat to get to the elements and replace them as necessary.
