    2006 Base DTS Heated seat issue

    I just purchased myself a 2006 DTS for my winter beater while my 11 GT 500 is in hibernation for the season. I got to say I love this car!!! Not Quite my age demographic lol.

    My issue is with the heated seats, both switches light up, but no heat? Anyone had this issue?

    Thanks.

    Re: 2006 Base DTS Heated seat issue

    Congrats on your DTS, RBCBANKER! Have you had a chance to check out the portion of your owners manual dealing with the heated front seats (page 1-4)? According to your manual,

    "There are three temperature settings for each feature. A
    column of three lights next to the buttons will display
    which setting the feature is in: high, medium or
    low. Three lights indicate the highest setting, two lights
    for medium and one light for the lowest setting."

    Has your heat been set to the lowest setting?

    "When you press a button, the feature will turn on at the
    highest setting. Each time you press the button, the
    feature will go down one temperature setting.
    To turn the feature off, keep pressing the button until
    the display lights turn off.

    If your vehicle has remote vehicle start and is started
    using the remote keyless entry transmitter, the front
    heated seats will be turned on to the high setting if it is
    cold outside. See “Remote Vehicle Start” under
    Remote Keyless Entry System Operation on page 2-5.
    When the key is inserted into the ignition and the
    ignition is turned on, the heated seat feature will turn
    off. To turn the heated seat feature back on, press the
    desired button."

    If you're still having concerns after consulting the manual, feel free to send me an email anytime at Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com!

    Best,

    Katie

    It takes about 10 minutes before seats get warm.

    Re: 2006 Base DTS Heated seat issue

    there's a multi- connector under the passenger seat that controls BOTH heat and a/c seats (if you have that) Can't remember which one (i think it's the smaller of the two, farther back under the seat than the other) it is but raise up the passenger seat and set it all the way back and inspect the integrity of the connections. .Mine stopped working and I found one of the connectors had a slightly melted pin area most likely due to less than ideal contact. I stuffed a bent staple in there to make better contact, reconnected and a year later, still working! The seats should be pretty warm in a few minutes and really hot after 10 or so.

    I think I would have bad blisters on my backside after 10 minutes with mine on high.

    Most likely the problem is the connection

    Mine just stopped working smelt burning plastic and just like the last three times and poof no heated seats. third time ive had this repaired at GM, works for a few months and then melts the connector under the passenger seat. if i didnt have gmpp this could get crazy, i only have a 100dollar deductible.
