Down the road, issues like THIS are exactly what will start to crop up.

If you've got INPA, read your IBS page and see what the battery management system thinks of the battery. There should also be shadow codes showing if the IBS system shut down the loads.

I'm not saying it's definitely the problem, but it's something to talk about...
I believe your theory too. Everyone that says they never did it and never had a problem are the ones looking at batteries dying or not, not looking at these weird electrical quirks. I didn't trust my Indy even though he said it was registered, after the battery went bad within 6 months, I got a new one and registered it myself thanks to the post on here to do it free. Just hope that program was legit too lol

Heated Seat Lights

Hi there, did anyone solve this issue as I have just done a heated seat retrofit including new switches, fuses and coding and I get the same. With ignition on the lights stay on but the seats do not heat up. with engine running the lights come on for a second and then go straight off again. Happens on both driver and passenger side!

Hi,

Experienced the exact problem this past winter on a cold snowy night in New Jersey.

Went home and put car on BMW battery tender for the night. I was also advised by another member of this forum to wait a couple of minutes after starting to put seat heaters on. Did all of this and tested seat heater everyday throughout the rest of the winter and no problems at all. I have now been putting car on battery tender twice a week.

There is a recall for this. Had it fixed while under warranty and never had an issue since.

By chance have a TSB # or additional information? I am out of warranty so it would need to be a recall for me to take advantage.

My mistake, it was for the heated steering wheel, same problem with it turning off. If you have the heated steering wheel and it is turning off as well, may as get the TSB as it may fix it.

Here is a link to the thread with the TSB http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=195506

I was having the same problem, dealership wanted to replace heating elements $1100!
I bought leather seats (used in perfect working order) just put them in...same problem.

Any updates? Could it be the switch?
