Honestly cant help you but mine heats up when it wants to so dont worry ha ha.

most probably will be something to do with the wiring tho

Does anyone else's seat only heat half or heats up when it wants (obviously when its turned on)??

They all do that mate- probably a safety mechanism built in to stop burning the seat material and more importantly to stop you from burning your crown jewels :whistling:

yes they are in 2 parts and just couple together before going to the switch. not sure if you can get just a bottom but you can get the whole seat heater pad. just did my back seats and it was not that hard to do but you do need a special pliers and some seat fastenings. tale one hour to remove the seat and fix a new pad.

hope this helps

if not try finding a breakers yard that has your seat and just swap them over

On a similiar note. Are the two switches for the heated seats, for the back of seat and the arse? or is it one switch for drivers seat and one for passenger seat? Not sure ive explained that clearly!? :blush:

Lol, left switch is for passenger seat, right switch for drivers seat :)

No worries, sounds like someone swapped the switches round - easy to fix, just pop out the panel and swap the plugs over. As for the seat that isn't working, check the fuses, I think they're in the passenger footwell but check the manual to be sure.

Thanks for that mate. One other thing though....both lights on the switches light up. Would this mean the fuse is ok?

Thanks for the heads up on that! I forget the IS has so many airbags.

And thanks for the replys here. Hopefully its just wiring but if not then the seats coming out when the weathers warmer next year (working outside in the rain on a car aint no fun).

I don't think so, it still could be the fuse.

Hi,

So since it's winter I one morning discovered that my IS200 had the same problem. The back heats up just fine but the bottom part doesen't. I took your advice and checked the fuses. I found a fuse on the drivers side (left side of the car in my case) that was named SEAT HTR. Now i'm thinking this is the heated seat fuse, but is there really one fuse for two seats? :unsure: Anyway that fuse was ok so i'm out of ideas. Don't really want to go to the dealer as well with this minor problem.

P.S I recently had my sound system upgraded, and i wonder if those quys maybe messed it up.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
