Angry Driver Heated seat problem

My 03' MDX Touring + Nav with 60K drives me nut lately.

I already removed the fuse but sometimes I feel realy HOT in my back, but not the bottom. It's on for 10 seconds and then off. It shows up more often with AC on, but sometimes with AC off also. The car's circuitry system looks fine (I guess), Navigatvion and Audio are nornal working condition. I don't have any off market installed such as Alarm, or Stereo.

Took the car to local shop but I could not repeat the problem, so they did not how to fix.

Any help is really appreciateded. I am about to give up this one to get a new lexus! which is less problem.

thanks
_Tom_

Same thing happened to me prior to a complete element failure. It was replaced under warranty.

Fixing the heating elements

Does anyone have instructions to replace the seat heating elements?

Do you need to remove the seats?

Yep, the seat must be removed for fixing. Remove the seat cover and it is pretty straight forward. If not a good diy'er, take it to the dealer, only an hour labor or so.

Thanks for the information. I have a small but growing list of minor items that need to be fixed. Drivers heated seat, light in cruise control, the light in the shift console that displays P-R-N-D etc and some loose seat trim.

KES-

Several of the nagging faults you have described (cruise control light, etc.) have already been mentioned by others on this forum. Try searching, and maybe you can find solutions from others here.

Dealer wants 3 hours to fix the seats plus $165 for parts for a grand total of $475. Is the seat removal more difficult than one would think?

Has anyone removed the drivers seats before?

No this repair is on my dime. My 02 MDX has 93K on the odometer.

I am still trying to determine how difficult it is to remove the seat......
