Electrical issues (driver heated seat, day time running lights, etc

My WK2 has in the last 2 weeks displayed some odd electrical issues. Yesterday the drivers heated seat stopped working(then worked after restart). My daytime running lights stopped working last week and have not worked since. I have read about grounding issues with electrical problems here on the forum, so I'm wondering if that might be it? Are their specific ground wires or areas I should check?

I'd start by checking the fuses. It seems oddly specific for a ground, but someone else may know where to look.

I read alternator ground in another thread. Also, when I got my 2012 Laredo, the heated driver seat didn't work. I was going to take it in, but I decided to check the wire bundle under the seat and discovered that it wasn't fully seated in the connector. After seating it, the heat worked properly for the remaining time I owned the vehicle.

The fact that you have more than one thing failing leads me to believe it's not a connector, but costs nothing to check...
