Angry Heated Seats Do Not Work

Its getting cold here in Knoxville, TN. I made a trip to the mountains this weekend and tried using the heated seats for the first time and they don't work. Not even the lights on the switch. I checked the fuses and the plugs behind the switches and nothing works. Any ideas on what the problem might be?

So, you're saying you pulled the ashtray part out and checked and/or reconnected the heater switch plugs that are connnected to it and you still have nothing, correct? If it's not that or the fuse or then I have no idea but hope someone else will come along to assist you.

Hope you find your answer soon!

(Did you have any recent aftermarket stereo work done that might have disturbed the wires?)

Thanks bruno for the reply! I bought the car new, it only has 2000 miles on it. I have never done anything to it except oil changes, TSB's and rapid response transmittals. Everything else works fine on the car.

Gosh, that's very low mileage. Since you're still under warrantry, I would take it the dealership and let them figure it out. Now, you need to get out and really race that SRT!

Had the same thing happen to me. I have a 2007 300C that I bought new last October. The front and rear heated seats worked great until recently. One cold Sunday morning, the rear seat heaters worked, but no lights and no heat from either front seat. After returning home, I checked all of the fuses and connections with out any results. I decided to disconnect the battery and let it sit a few minutes. After re-connecting the battery, the front seat heaters began to work. I have not had a problem since then. Do not know what happened, but you may want to disconnect your battery and let it sit for a minute or two. Same thing happened to my wife's 2009 Dodge Journey. Any suggestions as to what happened?

JRod loves getting a rise out people with his comments - juvenile, at least. Not sure they'd qualify for high school. DO NOT FEED THE GORILLA!

Update on seats

I finally got a chance to take my car to the dealership on new years eve, it ended up being the module for the heated seats that was bad from the factory. They are ordering a new one under warranty.

I have a friend in the bay area who says JRod's seat warmers are the hottest. All of his buddies prefer JRod's to all other they've had the pleasure to know.
