Ah, sorry I didn't realise it works from the touch screen on these, there isno mechanical switch.

So in this case basically the thing is, that the head unit sends a can message over the canbus to the gateway, that relays it to power control module or seat module (or such).

There most likely is a fault either a connector or the heating element. The system detects that power is not flowing through the system as expected and switches it off.

If the seats have individual control modules, this could also be at fault.
