Heated seats

I have a 2000 Cherokee with heated seats.

The passenger seat recently stopped heating.

I changed the on/off switch.that didn’t fix it.

What else can I check?

Often it is the connections and wires under the seat. Take a look under there to see what condition they are in.

Fuse? Relay? Wiring connections?

I hate it when things stop working. I used the passenger seat to keep pizza warm on my way home. I’m always saying “bad ground” but leave the real work to the car owner. If a bad ground is ever found, I hope somebody mentions it. I want my life to have some meaning, but don’t expect me to work at it.
