It was the fuse. Thank you I was not sure where the fuse boxes were, if they were a snake they would have bit me. It is amazing how much enjoyment comes out of those delicate wires. The heated seats are a must have around here.

A continuity check would be in order after the fuse check Dick suggested.

Those wires are very delicate and won't take much tuggin' on without breaking.

Now that the bike is back together the seats do not work, either one. I check voltage on with the switch on and off, I get nothing. Is there a fuse in line somewhere I may have blown while messing around with these wires? I took all the plastic off and tank and the wires go right into the box with some relays in it.

Any help would be appreciated.
There is a fuse for the heated seats. On my '99, it is the third fuse from the top in the farthest left fuse block, under the passengers seat. Just raise the driver seat and you should see 3 boxes. Left side as you sit on the bike. HTH.
