heated seats

Electrical and Electronic

Model: C4, Year:1990, Mileage:48,000, Type of use:Street use only
My car is equipped with power seats on both driver and passenger. I purchased the car in 1999 with 15,000 miles. The heated seats have never properly worked under my ownership. The drivers side did not work at all and passenger would come on at random. When I inquired with the dealer about repairing them I was told the repair would be $500+ per seat. It seemed on the high side and living in Southern California they didn't seem necessary. The mechanic said he would disconnected them. Lately when I have passengers in the car, at random times, they start to squirm around as the seat becomes very hot. Something is going on with the seats. I would really like to have them in proper working order. Does the estimate from 12 years ago seem reasonable? I was thinking about checking with an independent. I've always used the dealer and haven't worked with anyone locally. How much could be involved with a heated seat?
