Customer Question

I have a grand jeep Cherokee 1999 the both heated seats do not work???
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Jeep. The Jeep Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: the switch light turns on but no heat
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: tried checking the fuse
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Jeep Mechanic should know about your Jeep?
Customer: also fixed one broken element, checked the module is not burnt seems intact
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Jeep Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.The most common caused for the seats to not heat in most cases is failing heater elements. Start first with checking them. Check the resistance of the heating elements, they should be 3-10 ohms cold. If the elements check okay then check the power in and out of the cushions with the switch turned on. If there is no voltage at the elements then you will need to check the module. See the steps to do so in the link below. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it. There is also a service bulletin dealing with the heater elements I have enclosed as well.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Mod%20testing%20May%208.pdfhttps://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Service%20bulletin%20heated%20seat%20May%208.pdfhttps://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Mod%20testing%20May%208.pdf
