    Heated seat not working

    Anyone got any thoughts on how 3 seats don't heat up but drivers one is working perfectly..... surely one seat wouldn't operate on a separate system. Cheers Tommy

    Heated seat not working

    Yes electric movement still working,garage looked at it but they only suggested it could be the module....they had car for nearly 4 hours and never gave me any real clues as to what's wrong.....presume they didn't want to do the job because they said they would email me with a breakdown of the costs for the 3 faults I asked about....never heard back from them.
  8. Heated seats on passenger side and both back seats just suddenly stopped working.... drivers heated seat working perfectly....does anyone know why this would happen.... seems strange that one seat would still work perfectly while other 3 fail. Cheers Tommy

    Another problem

    Update- turns out the passenger seat and the back seats not heating or buttons lighting up .... only drivers seat is working .... strange It's going to garage on Friday to get new light control unit fitted so I'll ask them to have a look at it. Suppose it is a bit of a rant .... just hoped bmw would be reliable car ... but not turning out that way.

    Why did I go back to a BMW?

    Maybe I am not qualified to speak on this yet but after speaking to a few people in the car trade I think I have made up my mind to try and find an old car where I don't need to worry about things like people banging doors off it in car parks etc , and where repairs are reasonable and not cost you a fortune just to get an LED unit replaced etc. I want to spend my money on me .... not the car.
