I just bought a used 2001 Volvo S60 T5 a few weeks ago. I went to use the heated seat for the first time yesterday, and it worked fine. The only thing I could complain about is it did get relly hot on the left side. Anyway, after about 20 minutes it cooled down to nothing, and has not since worked. The lights on the climate control are still on. There is no computer message on the dash, and the fuse is intact. Has anyone else had this problem? What else should I check? How much would it cost to have the dealer look at it? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Heated Seat Issues (blackTT55)

It's got 103K on it now. So I am sure anything will be out of warranty service. I was just wondering if there was anything I could check besides the fuse.

Did you ever get the seat heater to come back on after it died? If so, how? How long has this been a problem for you? Any suggestions for a fix? Oh and since you've probably owned your S60 alot longer... what other problems have you had?

Re: Heated Seat Issues (KiserRN1981)

Hey man. It still works, but I stopped using it immediately after it started to get really hot. These are the problems I have had:<p>1) driver seat leather is wrinkling, and degrading<br>2) power seat function stops working a second or so after starting the car<br>3) black side moldings/trim on the doors is fading to white (repainted)<br>4) windshield and headlights are pitting, though you can't see them from a distance, however I notice them all the time when I am driving.... kinda annoying (replaced windshield)<br>5) the Tethy wheels are showing major degrading issues (paint wise)<br>6) the plastic railing on the roof, that covers the waterway is fading/spotting white<br>7) broken front, driver's side speaker grille<br>8) sagging glove box when closed<br>9) sunroof makes an offer screaming noise when trying to open<br>10) O2 sensor (replaced)<p>I got a letter from my local dealer telling me to do the ETM upgrade, but they are awful. I am never going back there.
