Heated seats dont work.. Please help

For the life of me I cant find an answer the the WK's having this common problem.

Everyone says check the fuse..
What fuse is this? Where is it? What number is it?

If its not the fuse what else is it?

I need some help.

I saw a thread on here the other day with the same issue. The fix was to unplug the passenger side seat and it resets the system and seems to be the fix.

Alot...

These vehicles are not designed like the "Old Days"

When you press the switch it sends a digital message to the instrument cluster.... the cluster sends a digital message to the heated seat module..

So it can be any number of things..some are relatively easy to check like a fuse others are "fuzzy" and require the use of factory tools to diagnose.

Start with a wiring diagram.. if those items don't work it's time for the dealer..

Just rolling through trying to find a fix for this, I disconnected the larger harness under the passenger seat, reconnected, and voila! my heated seats work!

Im a diesel tech for Chrysler and hooked my jeep up to the WiTech system through OBD2. I did a reset and a flash, it fixed all my problems.

This just happened to me. Unplugged the module under the passenger seat and replugged it. All working now.

just a word of warning, I had my heated seats flicker on and off for a few weeks, then had a battery drain that i couldn't find. tuned out my heated seat module was shorting out. so if you have issues... check that first.
