Passenger Heated Seat Not Working? Advice Needed

Postby Graham_uk » Sat Nov 05, 2016 10:19 pm

Hi all, Next problem on my 2014 QQ Tekna is the Heated front passenger leather seat, I've just found out it's not working. Tried both "High" and "Low" positions and nothing. The orange light appears on the switch but there's no heat. I can't see anything obvious like a connector that's popped apart. The drivers seat is fine so what's the best plan?

Graham, I would say pay a visit to your Dealer as you have at the very least a 3 year Guarantee or if your lucky plus a extra 2 years. Let them sort it for you - -Dave ;)

Sadly I bought it knowing it had been a Cat D write off. No warranty for me :(

Just a thought does the element only come on if someone is sitting in it ?

Tiz a good thought however I jumped in mine the other day and it was freezing and since the engine takes a while to warm up (and thus put heat into the cabin) I thought it would be a good idea to switch the passenger seat onto HI (nobody sat on it). It took about 5 miles of driving but the heat did come through on it so I would say that nobody needs to be actually sat on it to activate.

Why not try and ask a dealer as the car may still be on Nissan's system as within warranty??

It does seem to take a while for the QQ seats to heat up!

If it really does not heat up then you need to start tracing the fault with wiring diagrams and a multi meter before you start swapping out parts really!

Getting power to the elements would be the first thing to check, then the resistance through the elements and compare that with the drivers side.

As for Cat D.... Nissan tend to departmentalise their warranty so yes if there was a bump that only affected say the bumper, the drivers seat should not be affected so if its still within its first 3 years, I would be chancing it and say nothing about the accident damage unless they ask! Also, a dealer would be interested in helping you (usually!) within the warranty as they get paid by Nissan manuf to do the work on their behalf

HAS ANYONE HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE HEATED SEATS. We have 2015 1.5D Tekna. We have had numerous faults with this car from air con condenser, creaking steering, key not recognised, delayed holidays due to Battery fault, blind spot detector faults and now drivers heated seat is not working. All problems have take at least three visits so far. Steering and heated seat will be on their fourth visit next time, last time it was off the road for 4 days, having had a new seat pad and lubricated steering. Heated seat Still not working. Drove 18miles on Saturday and the passenger seat came on within a mile or so, drivers never came on. Then on our return journey the driver seat came on within a a mile. Absolutely sick to death of this car. I am aware of a supposed mechanical fix for the steering which I have thrown back at Nissan themselves, also waiting to hear thoughts on the heated seat issue too. I owned one of the dreaded Austin Allegro( nicknamed Aggro in the trade) and this car is significantly worse than that. So much for a award winning car and factory.

I've had exactly the same issues as well as 2 clutches and DMF and a steering rack. Now I had my seat pad replaced and leather and heated element due to the leather splitting in October last year and i don't really drive the car as I have a van but we have just had a baby and I've been driving the car more and I noticed that the drivers heated seat intermittently works on and off on a journey or not at all! Rang the dealers and their he'd tech said it could be a connection, I'm a field service engineer for a large company and I'm mechanically and electrically trained and minded, I've already checked the connections, I suspect a faulty seat pad elements as the pad gets the correct feeds. Waiting for a reply from the dealers from a technical enquiry again as I'm not taking it in till they have a plan otherwise it sits there for a week! We will see what happens! Got to say the worst car I've ever owned and I woulda have another Nissan again!

Don't hold your breath over the faulty seat pad, ours had a new one and still not working properly, but I suppose they could all be faulty. How old is the car, mileage and how long you had it. Did the steering rack cure the creaking steering. The clutches and dual mass flywheel concern me.
