Cheers for any pointers

If you pull off the cover you will see either a smalll "Burnt" spot or just a break in them.

It's usailly around the right cheek.

Cheers for that, i shall have a look for that at the weekend!

Something as simple as a broken wire would be a great fix!

Re: Heated Seats

Just saying HI to everyone - I am new in this forum!

Re: Heated Seats

Anyone else have the recall done and feel that the seats don't heat up at all now?

I have mine at the dealer now going through them again cuz they don't heat up. They keep telling me they work because of good voltage but I don't feel anything. The only way they heat up from what I can tell is from my body heat.

Re: Heated Seats

wait a sec....you mean I can get the non functioning drivers heated seat to be repaired under recall on my 02 WJ? Well 40% less heat is better than none. How do I go about arranging this when I call the dealer? Is their a bulletin. I doubt I will get any notice, I'm not the original owner.

Re: Heated Seats

I got an 04, have had it for a year now. This recall was outstanding when I bought the WJ, I have received 2 notices since I bought it about the recall. I am very happy with the heat the seats have right now, I am gonna leave it alone.

Re: Heated Seats

The dealer had to take the elements out of the seat to see if they would heat up because they couldn't tell when they were installed. They even said if I wanted working heated seats I should install some aftermarket ones. Contacted Chrysler again about this and they said if the heat up they will not do anything. Yeah they heat up if there not installed. They even set the Jeep outside, with the heat off and windows down with the seats on and with a temp gun on High the seats heated to body temp. What is a consumer to do?

Re: Heated Seats

You should be able to "opt out" of recalls and instead get money back. Just pay me the labor you would normally charge for the hour or two your "professional tech" was going to take to screw things up even more and I'll sign a waiver. I'll be safer and happier in the long run.
