Heated Seat problem

We just bought an '05 Five Hundred. We couldn't be happier with it, but the heated seat on the driver side does not work. The passenger side works fine though. Anybody have this happen? Is it a simple fix or something that will cost an arm and a leg? Thanks in advance.

TSB 06-2-11 deals with this. You have to replace the seat cushion heater pad, and re-route the harness for it.

HEATED SEATS INOPERATIVE

FORD:
2005-2006 Five Hundred, Freestyle

MERCURY:
2005-2006 Montego

ISSUE
Some 2005-2006 Freestyle, Five Hundred, and Montego vehicles built through 11/22/2005 may exhibit a non-functioning heated driver's seat. This may be due to seat cushion heater harness becoming trapped between the track torsion bar and the cushion when the seat is in the rear tilt full down position. This may cause the solder joint at the seat heating pad to separate.

ACTION
Replace seat pad with new part and reposition harness. Refer to the Service Procedure.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

1. Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 501-10 Front Seat Cushion Cover for removal and installation instructions.

2. During installation route heater harness away from torsion bar function zone and fastened to 11 way harness near finger bracket. (Figure 1)

Re: Heated Seat problem

Thanks for the reply. Do you recommend trying to do this yourself or taking it to a dealership to have done? Any idea how much they would charge?

You're better off having the dealer do it. Especially if it has seat mounted air bags. Not sure how much they'd charge, the TSB pays almost an hour and a half, so expect at least 2 hours labor cash.
