I had my car in the shop to have the AC repaired. They had considerable trouble so they offered to do a complete detail for free for me. Well in that process, the passenger window stopped operating. When I press the window down button on the driver side I can hear a clicking noise on the switch on the passenger side but nothing happens. I'm guess I have a damaged passenger side switch. I didn't notice at the time, but now that it's cooling down, I've noticed that my seat warmers won't come on at all and there is not light appearing on the switch. I checked fuse #4 on the driver's side and even replaced it though it looked perfectly fine. I'm wondering if the heater switch is damaged as well. Anything else for me to do other than take it into a shop.

Do you have a multi meter to do some testing?You will need one to do some testing. Without testing can't tell what's wrong. Even if I was looking at it I would e testing to figure out the issue.

Yeah, I can get my neighbors tomorrow. Do you think they're at all related or just a coincidence. Let me know what to test.

It could be a condince until we get into it remove the screw from the passenger switch. Then pop the switch up turn the key in the run position. Then see if the blue wire with a yellow stripe has power with the switch in the up position. Also the blue wire with the white stripe in the down position has power to it at the switch.

I don't detect any power going into either. I believe I'm doing it right, correct me if I'm wrong. I have the "needle" of the voltmeter touching the brass fitting of the blue/white wire going into the switch and then activating the switch.

Correct. A lot of forums talk about the problem being the main drivers side switch.

Ok, I'll try that. Any ideas about the seat warmers? Neither light turns on or does it warm the seat. I checked the #4 fuse on the driver's side that supposedly controls it but it is fine.

For the seat heater with the key in the run position at the seat heater relay you should have a 2ohm or less ground to the relay and power at the yellow and black wire the white and green wire and the white and black wire?

Alright. Not technical, but I was able to pull a friend's passenger door switch off and put it on mine, worked perfectly. So solved that problem. Still need to look into the seat warmers they are harder to get to.

You can access wires to the seat warmers under the seat most of the seat heater issues I have seen are burned out seat heater elements.

Ok, just seems weird that both of them would go out at the same time. Does the seat warmer light still go on if the elements are burned out.
