    Location of Heated Steering Column Fuse

    The heated steering column in my 2005 STS is no longer working. I went to check the fuse (HTD STG/CLM) and the block is supposedly located underneath the rear seat, passenger side. I am not finding any fuse box on either side. Any guidance greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Susan

    Cool Re: Location of Heated Steering Column Fuse

    This has been hashed here, over and over, mostly the heater is burned out.As mine is.
    and replacing the whole steering wheel fixes the problem.
    The fuse is accessable, by removing the bottom of the rear seat.
    and you will see two fuse boxes, behind respectively, driver and passenger.
    on the front side of the base of the seat. facing up.
    If you have ANY warranty, they "MAY" fix it, , but probably NOT.
    The extended warranties are mostly for drivetrain stuff.
    You have a 8, going on 9 year old vehicle.
    Wishing you LUCK.
    Happy Motoring.

    Have to pull up the carpet a bit

    Think if you were sitting in the seat the fuse boxes are behind your ankles.

    Sub hit the nail on the head though you have a bad element in the steering wheel and being you have an 05 they are discontinued.

    Probably the wheel and not the fuse. Good luck!

    Re: Location of Heated Steering Column Fuse

    One member recently reported a dealer replacing his wheel but requiring the old wheel as a core exchange with the total price below the 'book' price of the unavailable part. If I have the facts right, it sounds like somebody has found enough demand to start a refurbishing operation.

    I hope so. I'm spoiled by my heated wheel and Winter is coming!

    Ah, okay. I followed the diagram in the manual and it showed them as being located right underneath the top of the seats, not at ankle level. Many thanks!

    Thanks again,

    Susan
