I have a '93 n/a 900 that I love, but that has a seat heater that wants me broiled. Basically, the heater is on even when the switch is off. I have a friend at the local Saab dealership who told me that I needed a new switch, and he had a whole bag full of seat-heater switches from dead 900's that I could pick through. I thought that I had a good switch until about a day ago, when the seat heater seems to be back on. I have two questions:

1) could this be something other than the switch?

2) my friend and his bag of extra switches are away on vacation for a week, and until then I'd like to disconnect the seat-heater. If I took out the switch, would that do it? I looked for the fuse, and I found (in the Bentley manual) a yellow 20 fuse under the rear seat that was supposed to cover the seat heater, overhead lights and key reminder bell, but, when removed, did none of those.

Underneath the front seat is the electrical connector for the heat pad. Disconnect that and seat heating will be disabled.

There's a temperature sensor in the heat pad. When that goes wonky it can cause the seat to heat up when it shouldn't. That's true for the auto-heated seats, but yours might be different as you have a dashboard temperature control.
