I have an '07 EX-L V6/6spd sedan. The drivers side heated seat stopped functioning the other day. I replaced the switch with an OEM switch from the dealer. Now my seat only works on the low setting. I took the switch out and tested it and it appears to test fine in low/off/high positions. I was pointed to check the relays next but I don't know where they are located. Any help out there? I have owned Honda's for years and this is my first Gen 7 with heated seats. Winter is approaching and I'm trying to keep the mrs. tooshie warm. Any help is much appreciated

The relays are located on the hood just above the engine air box. They are in a black box, you remove the lid and you will see fuses and some larger cube shaped objects. Those cubes are relays. On the inside of the lid there will be a diagram telling you what fuse/relay does what.

When you switch the switch to HI does the light come on?

I see this guy never responded. I just picked up an 07 EX with the exact same issue. The drivers seat heats on low but not hi. The light comes on when on LO but not on HI. Would there be separate relays for high and low?

Anyone?

And BTW, I picked up an 03, not 07. No idea why I said 07.

Did you do this? You could probably answer your own question.

Not yet. It's the wife's car and I haven't been able to get my hands on it. I will this weekend though. Will there be two relays? One for high and one for low?

OK so there is only one relay for "heated seats". Checking relays would be a waste of time. Pasenger's side seat works on both high and low and the drivers seat only works on low.

Anyone ever have this problem.

See the test procedures for the seat heater connector under the seat and the seat heater switch.

Thanks for that test procedure. It's the switch. No continuity when Hi is on.

EDIT: now Hi works sometimes. Gonna put in the new switch anyway.
