Customer Question
2011 Ford Expedition from...

2011 Ford Expedition from seats lights for heating and cooling seats come on for just a second then off. Heat and cooling are not working for front seats

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Blue lights for cooling red lights for heat you press for heating or cooling front seats only there are separate buttons to push for driver side and passenger side but all just light up for a second then go out when pushed

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Expedition yourself? What have you tried so far?

I tried the fuse but that didn't help. Im just trying to find out if its a loose wire under the seat or something needs to be replugged.

Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** am a Ford technician and would be happy to assist you with this today.

If you have already checked the fuses then that means we most likely have a wiring/module issue.

Each seat has a bulkhead connector underneath it, make sure neither of them got disconnected. If the connectors are still in place then we will need to inspect for power at the module. Usually when both seats go down like this it is due to a module issue

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.

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
