I really get sick of the holier than thou attitude of some German car 
owners.  Lots of things can break heated seats.   Putting a knee on it 
while cleaning etc is the most common thing.  Else something else pinched 
the wires.

So there ya go.  Your heated seats are damaged.  Has nothing to do with 
some great quality conspiracy or cutting corners.

To have you know, my 1989 Peugeot heated seats only worked after I fixed 
them....that's about as old as your dad's 86 Coupe.   Some work, some don't.
