The heating element in the driver's seat is known to go bad in the 2007 models and I think some 2008 Ford models vehicle also. When I push the electric heat seat button it will turn red for a minute but the heating element will not work in the back or in the seat area of the driver's side. Other people I know have had the same problem with their Ford same here different model and make and have found the solution to be a new wiring harness / connector to replace the factory one apparently one of the wires burnt out from the factory causing it to short. Are videos of this on youtube thank you for any and all help. It started by getting extremely hot and turning off really quick on its own and every time after that turning off quicker and quicker until it would not turn back on only show the red light for a brief minute.......... I have enclosed pictures information for the airbags on the passenger side that are suggested to be replaced again any help in resolving these problems would be greatly appreciate it thank you for the time.

Takata recall - at first I was told front passenger seat only should not be used; now latest recall notice says dangerous for driver and passenger because deployment of air bag could cause metal debris to spray occupants. Therefore, I cannot drive and I have not been able to get a rental car from dealer. I need assistance because of my doctor appointments.
