Default Heated Seat Stuck on High

Yesterday the heat in my driver's side seat in my 2000 9-5 got stuck on high, regardless of the switch position. It's also much warmer than it's ever been since I got the car used a few years ago. I currently suspect the switch, since it seems it's never been going to high all these years and is now stuck on high. Anyone know what would cause this? I have unplugged the heat switch and will see tomorrow if the heat is still on.

I vote switch as well. Try swapping it with the passenger side and see if the problem moves with it. I bet it will. Good luck!

yep, the switch is very easy to remove and likely to be the culprit.

Removing the switch did turn the seat off, so that must be the issue.
Does anyone know a place to order the switch online? I checked my usual ordering sites and didn't see it. The nearest dealer is over an hour away, so I'd like to avoid that trip if possible.
