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.

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

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

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

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
