    interesting, mine are starting to act up too. except its the passenger side that'll shut off. and it only does it if both the back and bottom are on. if only the back is on, it wont shut off. also, i'll have mine on, and my passenger will turn theirs on, and mine will shut off.

    weird.

    it usually happens within the first 15 seconds. it also trips the passenger seat off. the pass seat will stay on by itself with no problem.

    I have an 03 Tahoe and have the same issue, driver side up/down control seems to have reversed and heat doesnt stay on. Now passenger window not working. Would this be a driver door module issue?

    Most likely the heating elements are open in the seat cushion.
