Heated seat stopped working, no display for it

think its the fuse?  Neither driver or passenger works.  Nothing displayed either.

It was working last night and then all of a sudden my buns were cold. :190:

Well I guess  the easiest way to find out is to take a look.

 :192:  Id prefer to know if this was an issue with the dealer before I unbolt things to get to the fuse box.  Im a busy individual and was wanting a heads up, not a smart a$$ answer. :172:

Reading earlier posts I think it has to be enabled by the dealer.   So if the ECU has reset for some reason then it might reset that part and 'lose' the settings.  Not sure if it a shared fuse?

It was not a "smart a$$" answer as you so eloquently put it.  Before you go flying off the handle maybe you should stop and consider the diagnostics.  You state it was working.  Then you state it isn't working.  At all.  You logically suggest a fuse.  I suggest you look before driving all the way to the dealer.  You talk about unbolting things to get to the fuse box.  Getting to the fuse box requires only removing the left panel.  As far as I can tell the heated grips are not a shared fuse so if that is the only thing wrong it could likely be the problem.  If it is too much trouble for you to familiarize yourself with your bike and do a simple operation like check the fuses then OK rely on the dealer to do that for you.  But if that is your approach to bike maintenance I suggest you never ride more than a few miles from the dealer.  And I suggest you try being a little less touchy when you don't get the answer you want.
