Hi. More than likely you need the bottom seat cushion heater. The bottom cushion commonly burns out. The bottom and back are wired in series which means if one pad goes out they both will not work.

You can verify this by accessing the connector under the seat and checking the resistance of the bottom pad. If you have an ohm meter I can tell you which connector to check. Let me know how you would like to proceed. Thanks.

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 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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
