After starting vehicle seat heater cycles on drivers seat. settings are all over. After repeatedly turning it off ( 10 - 20 cycles) the heater does seem to stay off.Does not seem to happen with key off. No codes I know of.
Chevy Mechanic: Super Mechanic, Master technician replied 2 years ago

I see, thanks. That could be in the switch but it could also be in the seat or door module. A scan tool is needed to test it out.

.

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 test 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

No, this is all BS. You got the first $28 which I thought was $5 . There will be no more. I already know what is not wrong.
Chevy Mechanic: Super Mechanic, Master technician replied 2 years ago

I see, thanks. I have nothing to do with any of the site's charges, sorry.

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

.

The circuitry for the seat heater would have to be diagnosed either way to know what is wrong with it, thanks
