2007 Ford Expedition EB - Driver side heated & Cooling Seats not working
I have just recently purchased an '07 Ford Expedtion Eddie Bauer and so far am very impressed with the vehicle. Having said that, this morning when driving in to work, I tried to use the driver heated seat function and noticed that it didn't work. Pressed the button once to activate it, 2 indicator lights came on, but after a few minutes they turned off and would not come on again. I tried pressing the button again but the light would not stay on. The Cooled seat control did the same thing - the indicator light would come on the the button is pressd but would not stay on when finger is removed. Again, the passenger side works fine (both low and high setting works for the "heat" and "cooling") but driver's doesn't.
Any help on what I can do other taking it in to the dealer would be greatly appreciated.
To give an update as I see that there are not recommendations but a number of views, I have found a number of threads on this topic on this site. Very informative. I took the vehicle to the dealer, they ran their diagnostic and came back with a conclusion that that the entire module needs to be replaced. The item was priced at $220 plus 2 hours of labour. I questions the advisor but he didn't really seem to know much about it and the mechnica who worked on it has already left. I may need to get a second opinion as I honestly don't think they knew what they were doing, even after I've given them a print out from one of the threads of how to troubleshoot it (which I doubt they did). The plastic cover on the side of the seat wasn't even put back properly, very sloppy.
The driver A/C seat seem to work just fine, and so does the A/C and heated passenger seats. I may just forget about it as I am no longer in a cold climate and don't need it really.
