My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received 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.

Trace and inspect the wiring leading to the right tail light for any issues.If any issues are found with the wiring leading to it this can cause this fault here and would need repaired.If this is or was checked and found o.k. already let me know.

Usually with the heated seat issue the seat elements can burn out on the seats themselves and cause this fault here.If the seats failed at separate times from each other this is usually the cause and the elements will need checked/tested to see if any of them need replaced.If these both quit at the same time let me know.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
