was there a recall for heated seats?
I would call the dealer to find out if there was one for your car.
The Canadian site for recalls is: http://www.tc.gc.ca/roadsafety/recalls/search_e.asp The US site for recalls is: http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/recallsearch.cfm But I would still call the dealer, there might be a recall, for this car but might not involve your car. Best of luck, hope this helps.
