There are heating elements in the seat back and the seat bottom cushion. If the Heated Seat Module detects an open circuit or a short, it will shut the heated seats off.

what do the heater elements look like and is there wiring diagram so i can check for open or short> I had the seat completely out and apart yesterday I didn"t see any element or wires going to anything in the seat or back

The heating elements are located between the seat foam cushion and the seat cover.

See below for the pin point test we follow the wiring diagrams.

Okay I m under the drivers seat and there are 5 connectors 1 looks like Main then 4 going to a control box of some sort but I don't see the color wire the troubleshooting guide is calling for. Which one from the picture should I be testing
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
When I go to fordparts.com and enter my VIN then search for heating element nothing comes up. Is it possible the element is in the motors?

They are heater mats. Below are exploded pictures of the seats to help you see the parts. Below is what the connector looks like and below are the location of the wiring connectors.

Here is the bottom of the seat and all connectors I do not see the one you sent a picture of. Unless it is on module under the passenger seat. It works fine in cooling just not heat and both fans run. I am just trying to repair wo the 1200.00 cost the dealer wants thank you again for your patience with me

Can you send me a picture of your AC control panel with the heated/cooled seat switches?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question

Below is your set up. You have the dual electronic climate control with the heated/cooled seats. You do not have a heater mat.

Ford had two different systems set up in the 2008 MKZ.

if I don't have a heater mat then how is the seat heated? Is it all in the fan itself?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Thanks that does look like a connector I have
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I am a hvac guy by trade and mechanic sometimes on the easy stuff.

Thermo-electric device (TED) and blower assembly within each front seat cushion and backrest. It has a built in element that heats the air for heat.
