Ok : Here is my issue. I have a 2010 Ford Taurus SEL, 132K miles. The driver seat heater stopped working. The seat has a small brown spot. I would guess its a blown circuit (wire) Due to the fact when I press the seat heater button it turns on and turns off right away. The Passenger seat works! So thats why I think its a blown circuit. And if it was a fuse both seats would not work because I am guessing there is 1 fuse for both heated seats. Any thoughts? I believe I need a new Heater pad assembly for the driver.Thank you.

The common caused for this problem is in most cases due to a bad Heated Seat Element and when it shorted out it likely overheated and that caused the brown spot on your seat. The fix in most cases is to replace the element. Do you need the steps to replace it?

Yes, that does look like the correct part. See the replacement steps in the link below.

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.
