Check your fuses first. Then test for power (voltage) with the switch for the seats on. Use a multimeter or test light and test both sides of the switch and where it goes into the seat as well.

I too have the same problem on a 2000 bonneville, drivers seat, I am able to turn the switch on and then it cycles off within a few seconds. I have checked the fuse and it is fine. #16 and #31 on the 2000 ssei.... let me know if you find the answer

I have the same problem. I have replaced the switch and the controller. same problem My element shows a good resistance. I think there is a thermostat in the seat pad that is the problem. I can see a return line from the elements. Ill let you know if it is that Jim

How do you troubleshoot 1999 expedition heated seats?

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.
