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.

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 have considered taking it to a dealer yes, I have no problem with dealers. I don't have the funds available to take it to any dealer at the moment. If I decide to I will contact you, thanks.

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.

Eric, sorry to hear about your seat. The heated seats are one of the options I love the most on my 2010. It is the first car I have owned with heated seats, when my back hurts I love to crank it up and ahhhhh, even on a hot day just turn up the A/C. I have not encountered this problem and my 2010 has just over 30k on it but I appreciate you posting your issue here so if I do have a problem I already have an idea as to what it might be. Hope you get your problem solved once and for all.

No I don't run the a/c really cold. I try not to run it, if I don't have to. I like the fresh air, and to play my music loud.

Thanks Maggie :thumbsup:

I have had INTERMITENT issues with my drivers side one. They replace a heating element. next time in they looked at the uninstall/reinstall they have and verified everything was connected solid. I still get it every now and then.

They are just little wire elements.. if you get it fixed, keep that in mind everytime you plop down in the seat.. lots of plopping in to the seat I think, in my own opinion, is the cause of the wires breaking, which causes an open in the circuit, which is why they don't work..

Was that repaired under warranty or not? If not what was the cost roughly if you remember?

kc0mj there is a lot of "plopping down" on the seat, being that is the easiest way to get in the car.
