The actual filament for the heater is the issue on the OE heated seats. Mine went out on my 2002 WJ a couple years ago. The wiring was fine but the filament inside the seat had gotten too hot and burned up. Easiest thing to do is pull the seat/cover and see if there are any burned ends. Mopar has a replacement kit available that replaces the entire assembly inside the seat and actually provides additional elements on the bolsters and updates seat/seat back elements. I think it took me maybe an hour or two for the whole swap.
