    heated seats not working

    I've got a 16 r1200rt. And I noticed that my heated seats are no longer working. The indicator shows up on the dash but no heat from the seats. I plugged it into the gs-911 and it said that there's a circuit open on the seat. Was wondering if anybody else had this issue. Its still under warranty till the end of the year but i'd like to save myself a trip if I could.Thanks

    Open circuit means broken wire. Unless you want to dig it out of the seat I'd just let the dealer deal with it.

    I know I'm probably stating the obvious here, but have you checked the plugs are indeed connected to the seats? I know myself that I've taken the seats off and forgotten to reconnect the cables.

    Also, can you verify that 12 volts is actually reaching the bike side of the plug, and do a continuity check on the seat side of the plug (should be a couple of ohms, I don't know the actual value).

    Thanks for all the replies. Iíll spend a couple of hours and see if I canít find a loose wire or a bad connection before I take it in.
