Just heard back from the dealer. Apparently I have a faulty control module or something to that effect. Once I heard it would be $325-$350 to fix, I kind of stopped listening. I have just over 44,000 miles so of course its not covered. I told them to forget about it cause it works more times then not. Plus the car is a lease that is due back in just under a year. Hope you have better luck with yours.

Wow! 44,000 miles on a lease; how many miles do you get on a 3-year lease?

Oddly enough it's a 4 year lease with 12,000 miles per year. I'll be over for sure. I'm going to write to Chrysler about the issue. For something that gets so little use, it shouldn't need to be fixed on my dime.

Hoping to revive this thread for some assistance. I'm having similar problems to the OP. My driver side seat will not stay on unless it's really cold (less than 10 F) and even then it's not reliable. Is it a big deal to replace the module? I'm pretty handy but I don't know how comfortable I am with re-wiring anything if necessary...

Not likely, I use my year round even when the temperature is in the 90s F as I like the heat on this old back.

I had the same problem as OP. I was told the Fuse and Relay are the same for both seats?! So it's likely something wrong with the computer. I'm taking to dealer, but would be interested to hear how other's solved this. I'll post what dealer says next week when i hear back.

Well, this is also happening to me and I have made a dealer appt to replace shifter button (or shifter) and diag drivers seat heater. Past original warranty so hoping all can be done for only $100 hit due to MaxCare Warranty

Update with what the dealer found out. It was the lower and upper heating pads, they said they were defective. Covered under 3 year/36,000miles warranty, so it's being replaced.

Lesson learned: Take it to the dealer ASAP, don't wait until warranty is almost over.
