Hello all,
My wife has a 2002 Subaru Outback LL Bean Edition (3.0L V6). 2 days ago I was driving her car and I had the heat on, the passenger heated seat on, and a cell phone charging in the cigarette lighter socket. All of a sudden they all shut off: the heater blower (display still lit up), the heated seat, and the cigarette lighter socket all shutdown. I immediately figured it was no big deal, just a fuse. Well...I checked all the fuses for the heater (#1/#2), and the heated seats/lighter socket (both on #21), and the fuses are not blown. I also checked all the main fuses in the main fuse box under the hood. Now, I don't know what the next step is; does anyone know what the problem could be. I do not have a wiring diagram for the car.

Unfortunately, we live in New England and winter is coming, so heat is very important right now.

Thanks in advance for all your help!

Dan

Common to the front and rear accessory outlets and the seat heater circuit is fuse #4 in the in-cabin fuse panel.

I don't see anything in the wiring diagram I have that links the heater fan motor with that fuse, but that doesn't mean it cannot be connected in some way.

But I suggest checking or replacing fuse #4, 20 Amps to begin with.

(With fuse #4 blown, it's likely the vanity mirror lights also do not work, along with the remote control mirrors.)

Might also want to have a look at http://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/110-gen-2-2000-2004/50123-relay-heated-seats-2003-h6.html, which is similar and has additional insights into the system, as well as a wiring diagram.

Let us know what you find . . .
