I guess I should thank you...so thank you...
though that's not really good news for me! I did change my transmission fluid (don't tell the lifetime fluid people) so was hoping that I'd inadvertently banged the switch while in the neighborhood...or that the fluid change somehow gunked up the switch...though I did see there's only one line coming from the switch...through the driver's side backup light to the pass side light. That's why I was hoping!
Maybe connector; ground? I'm thinking it probably isn't the wiring behind the scenes, but that might be wishful thinking.
Thanks for your reply. Will post answer when I find one, as there seems to be no answer to this prob. online anywhere.
most likely it is a connector or a faulty ground, if one lights up, like he said, then your switch should be OK,(it doesnt make sense to have 2 switches) .. actually what i did on an old, crappy previous car, well i had a short in the passenger side parking lights(the fuse kept burning out, and the rear-right tail light and front right corner light would nto be illuminated) well when i got pulled over and was ordered to fix it in order to have my ticket dismissed i tapped a wire from the passenger side to the driver side and it worked like a charm
and as for the heated seats(take it from someone who actually took their seat apart, yes the cushion) it is a tray of wires that goes between the cushion and the leather, its really a pain if it was actually the seat heater, so lets hope its the switch
