Question Heated Seat (Drivers) not working

My drivers heated seat decided to stop working. The light comes on when you hit the button, but theres no heat. The pass side works just fine. It was serviced early last year for the recall on the glue used for the heated seats and worked fine. Now, it just decided to stop working. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Coil's busted? You still under 36k? You can probably sneak in for warranty depending what month you took delivery of the Cent.

I think mine's up... next July, and Centennials were around when I was shopping. So you're probably safe if the mileage isn't too high.

NO, I'm not under warranty any more. Sorry, I should have clarified that. I'm at 44K right now.

Aww crap. Well... maybe check the wiring under the seat or under the button, make sure nothing's loose.

It's kind of a giant PITA to pull the covers off the seat to get at the actual elements, so hopefully it's something outside the seats that's more easily accessible?

Check the recall letter (if you still have it), sometimes they extend the warranty on parts which are recalled.
