I've owned a 1998 and now a 1999 Eddie Bauer Expedition. Both have had drivers heated seat go out. What happens is the wire breaks due to being sat on many, many times over the years (which is why the passenger side lasts longer - it's not sat on nearly as much). It is a simple fix really. Once you're able to get the bottom seat out (which is another question to post here), take the leather cover off and you'll see the small burn right away where the wires broke. Solder them back together, wrap with electrical tape and you're good to go.

Does the light come on, when switched on? Most likely, a relay is at fault. If one seat works, and the other one doesn't, switch relays, and see if the problem moves. Next suspect would be an open circut possible. Check continuity of elements.

Chevy astro drivers side window not working?

OK, This is my first time posting a question and I thought it was like an email deal..... My 1999 Chevy astro drivers side door window works intermittently. Sometimes it works fine, and sometimes it only works a little at a time. It usually doesn't have a problem going down, but when I go to roll it up, it stalls, and I have to wait (for a minute or so) to hit the button to advance it some more before it quits again. Anyone have an idea on what is causing this? I am having the same problem with my 2000 Astro. The window rolls down fine but occasionally it will not roll up. It seems if I turn off the engine and then restart, then I can get the window to roll up. (Or this is just a coincidence.)
