Hello, when you press the heated seat switch does it light up for 1 second and then go back out on both sides?

I'm sorry for the delay. I haven't been feeling well. Since neither of the seats are working you want to check fuses 18&43 in the smart junction box. This is the interior fuse panel. When you replace the blown fuse make sure the system works and the fuse doesn't blow again. If the fuse blows a second time there is a short in the system and will require electrical work to be traced down.
