How old is your battery?

I believe the heated seats will not turn on unless the battery charge is at a sufficient level.

When my battery first started going, I noticed immediately after starting the Jeep the heated seats wouldn't work. After a few minutes of running (and presumably the battery charging), they would come on. Two weeks later, replaced the battery and they have been fine ever since.

Is it both sides? Or just driver? Chances are you have a bad element in the seat,failing module, or a burnt connector. I went aftermarker with my heaters when I did my leather. OEM stuff is CHEAP and paper thin.

i still can figur this out. its not a fuse atleast that i can find. 90% of the time they dont work. the switches dont light up nothing happens. neve ever dose one work and the dosent they always never work together. 10% of the time when they do work they work perfict. some times it feels like it way hotter than it should be tho

Yea, mine are hit or miss on startup, It may or may not turn on when I first start the vehicle, however when I drive for about 3 or so minutes they work fine. I probably have a bad voltage.

If mine don't turn on then they won't turn on ay all even on a 4000miles trip to the keys and back they worked once. once the truck was turned off they didn't work again

id start by checking your connections under the seats. See if youre getting any voltage down there for starters, connections are good. Might be worth a shot to pick up a new switch bank, could be a bad switch.

the heated seats are controls from a box under the passengers seat. disconnect the battery and remove the wire and plug it back it. reconnect and you should be good to go. i had mine go out once and it turns out the wire was loose.
