Good morning, will either seat heater work at all?

No neither one is working, but the light comes on and stays on.
Ford Mechanic: connor75, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 years ago
There are three fuses I'd like you to check, do you have a test light available?

My husband can check them, where do I get a test light from?

 

Ford Mechanic: connor75, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 years ago
Any autoparts store will work, the fuses are fuse 23 in underwood fuse box, and fuse 19 in the inside fuse box. The fact that the lights are coming on tells me that the fuses are good and that we have again, I know you replaced a pad sometime before, but I really feel we have to pad issues here, one on passenger and one on the driver side. The pads are wired in series like the old christmas tree light, one bulb goes out none work type of circuit. Therefore if the driver side upper or lower pad is open while the other is completely fine it won't work, same on passenger side.Just to be sure though, check those two fuses.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
