LS400 seat heater repair

Recommended Posts

I came across the following on another forum. Has anyone been brave enough to remove their seats and have a go?

"I repaired my seat heater the other day. In my 96 LS400 the element is two wire and a ground, three pin connector. The two wires converge at the ground so you should have continuity between all three pins. I found that the wires work hardened and burned in the folded flap between pads in my seats. A little flux, solder, and wire and it was back together."

Probably from the same forum or a similar one, but I saw that someone had taken out the old seat heating bits and wired in an amazon 'modern' seat heating pad. Seemed chuffed with it in the thread and I'd imagine it would warm up quicker. I am still rectifying other interior problems first, then I am getting onto testing my seat heater. Agreed on waiting for better weather!
