be the problem!?

I would say that there's probably a problem either with the control unit for the heated seats or the heated seat switch. You could try swapping the switch for the driver's seat to the passenger seat and vice versa to see if this cures the problem - then you'll know the switch is faulty. I would get it checked by an auto electrician though as potentially it could be a fire hazard if you have a fault with something like this. Good luck in getting it repaired.
