Problem with heated seat

Hello all, I have a 2010 Camaro with heated seats. The problem that I am having is that the drivers side heated seat will come on, but will only stay on for about a minute or so. The passenger side heater seems to be working just fine. Has anyone else had any problems like this? Would like to try and save some money before I have to take it to a dealer or any reputable garage. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That sucks. I can hear it clicking underneath the seat, then clicks off.

Hello Eric.S,

Sorry you're having an issue with your heated seat. Have you considered taking your vehicle in to see a dealer? If so, I'd be happy to help set that up for you. I would just need some information from you to do so which you can private message to me. Let me know, here to help.

I am sure it is the heating element... They are only about 100.00 for the part, and if you are mechanically inclined at all, they are not bad to install yourself. Take prolly hour and a half to put it in. I could even send you the instructions on how to install if you decide for sure you are going to do it.
