Forester Heated Seat Fix?

check any fuses, I would guess the light is associated to the signal voltage from the switch that would operate a relay controlling current through higher rated cable - in the same way your high beam and high current aftermarket horns work.

I would disconnect the supply lead under the seat and see if there is voltage there - If so it points towards a break in the seats heater circuit / element. If not work on fuses / relays

If you lucky, drivers side tends be seat internal assembly (pressure switch from driver in/out of seat) but you get lucky sometimes and wiring or plug knocked by stuff pushed under seat or seat movement itself. Worth checking voltage/earth to seat base before fully concluding element/thermostat or seat switch related. good luck .

Thanks Mr B..... I had a look under the seat and it all looks to be plugged in as it should be but I gave it all a bit of a waggle. Going on a run up to Daventry this evening so I'll see if they're working, I didn't have a lot of time to fiddle about today....
