Seat heater switch-indicator bulb

Tue Jan 26, 2021 6:00 pm

Greeting Electronauts,

I just noticed the indicator light in my seat heater switch (driver side only) is no longer working. Heater works, bulb does not illuminate.
Any advice how to access the bulb?

I suspect the 'bulb' in the switch is probably an LED and isn't replaceable - A new switch is probably the only solution if you need an indicator (besides a warm tushy) that the seat heater is on ;)

This exact thing has also happened to my 2016 I at 27,800 miles.
