2021 GMC AT4 Ventilated Seats not working


Recommended Posts

The ventilated seats, both driver and passenger don’t blow cold air. The blue lights come on when turning them on but no cool air from the seats. The seat heaters work fine. Any suggestions?  Trying to keep from having to take the truck in to the dealership.

Do you hear any noise when you turn them on?  With my 2020 AT4 you definitely hear them.  Likely the dealer will have to fix it either way but since it is both seats, likely something "upstream" of connectors on the seats.  My .02.

Is it blowing any air at all when the button is on?? I have the same exact truck and noticed the same thing on hot days or if had windows open.....i figured out when the ac was on it blew cold air. I think it takes the ac cold air from the vent under the seat to blow cold air. Try that and post back to see if that worked 👍

Each vented seat consists of 2 blower motors; one in the seat back and one in the seat cushion. During vented seat operation, the vented seat blower motors move cabin air through channels in the foam pad and small holes in the seat covers causing a cooling effect to the occupant.

With the ignition ON, battery voltage from the ignition main relay is applied through a 15 A fuse located in the Instrument Panel Fuse Block to the seat cushion blower motors. Ground for each blower motor is provided through separate ground circuits and a common ground connection.

When the seat heating control module receives a ventilation seat command, it sends a low side drive pulse width modulation (PWM) signal through the blower motor control circuit to the seat cushion blower motor indicating the seat ventilation command. The logic in the blower motors sets the blower speed to the switch set point. The blower motors run causing a cooling effect to the occupant.

Thanks...I'll give the fuse box a look first.
