Customer Question
My passenger side heated...

My passenger side heated seat won't work. The light comes on for a second and then goes back out and no heat to the seats.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked to make sure the thermostat is working? What about the coolant level?

It has nothing to do with the thermostat or the coolant.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Honda?

2013 EX-L

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

Trying to.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of.

hello

this is normally due to a short in the seat heater itself.

you will need to have the wiring checked and potentially have the heating pad replaced

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
