Silly me! I thought the purpose of a seat was to support the pressure of being sat on. Since this is an American car, it should even survive the heft of fat people. Indeed, I thought it was reasonable to bounce -- not that I ever did . . .

The dealer kept it about four hours, replacing the back and bottom heat elements. Now it works.

Glad to hear they had the parts in stock that's what blows having to go back once the parts come in.

Just got my 08 back from dealer. Driver seat heat element replaced. One day to get part and one to replace. No problems with dealer. Great service.

Just had my driver's side heating element replaced. Covered under CPO 3,000 mile warranty so I had to pay $100 for the deductible along with some other work that was done.

Just replaced my DS heat pad. It shorted out and burned the foam slightly. Put new one in(Ford OEM not after market) and the switch lights up for a few minutes then turns off. Every push of the button results in the lights blinking and then off. I’m guessing it has something to do with the heat control module under the pass seat not reading the temp correctly. Has anyone else had this issue and resolve it by replacing the seat heater module?

Hope this helps DIY guys. I also have other Ford Taurus video's that may help you guys out. Since my issue isn't completely resolved and I have a gut feeling it's the heated seat module that's causing all the problems. I will do a video on how to test if the module is actually the problem, so watch for that.
