Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the stock 2002-2005 section. You could test the switch with a continuity tester.

bummer on the '03 as there is a mid model change for the heated seats, no idea when the switch over was made.

They started with a Heated Seats Module (black box under seat) to control the heated seats, if you have one that would be my first guess.

Half-way through they dropped the module all together, and only use a switch, and heaters no module, switch here seems common.

I have an '04 Eddie Bauer with the same problem. If I push the button in the light on the display goes off but as soon as I release the button the heated seats indicator lights stays on. How do I test the switches and module mentioned above?

Remove the seat to get closer to the switch, disconnect switch & perform a simple continuity test. Push in & you should have cont. Let go & it should show open.

I'm in the process of wiring mine so it will start to heat when I remote start the truck. What I never liked about my heated seats is that they only heat to a point, then switch off without coming back on. Guess this is normal for explorers, but not other heated seat systems.
