Help My 06 400H Heated Seat Switch Not Working

Recommended Posts

I am looking for electrical circuit diagram for the heated seats system to troubleshoot this problem:

my driver switch for the heated seat kept ON to the max without turning on or off. My seat is burning hot.

I removed the connector out the switch... the seat still hot.

The only way to defeat the heated seat is to remove the fuse which I did.

Any ideas if the switch or the relay is bad!!!

Thanks in advanced.

I would suspect if the switch is disconnected and seat is still hot, then the relay is bad....However there is a thermostat on the seat heater.....

Thanks lemon.

There are 2 relays next to the fuse #43. Do you know if they're heated seats relays? If yes they are, which is for driver seat?

I will put the fuse #43 back and remove the relay one at a time. Is it OK to do??? Any safety concerned??

Thanks in advance

If there are two relays, one for each seat a quick troubleshoot would be to swap and see if the problem goes away....Same for the switches....

Flash14: Thanks so much for the diagrams. This is exactly what I've been looking for. I will post the post all troubleshooting steps later if this gets fixed.

Lenore: Thanks, I will swap the relays first. I will follow up later.

Had the same problrm, there is a small connector on the bottom of the seat with a green and grey plug in it. The black part that the plugs plugged into was melted, I replaced the black part for 158.98 and now it works normal again,

Philip, I am having the same problem with Lexus 400H. Driver seat just gets hotter and hotter. What did you ultimately do to fix your problem.
