I have a 2010 Fusion Hybrid. The heated seat on the passenger side works, but the driver's side doesn't work.
When I press the Driver's heated seat button, the two red lights come on and then turn off after about 2 seconds.
I removed the leather cover off the driver's seat (bottom) and inspected the heating element. I didn't see any obvious burns anywhere. Is it possible that the heating element is bad with no visible signs? I thought of checking the continuity of the element to make sure there were no breaks, but I am not sure the pinout on the connector. Is it possible to check the continuity of the heating element?
Also, I didn't take off the back of the seat cover to inspect that heating element. It's much more difficult to get the back of the driver's seat cover off.
