Pleeeeeeeeese Help. My driver seat is so hot you can feel satan . The heated seat switch in not pushed at all. At night I have to unhook the battery and if I hook the battery during the day I have to start it and run it for about 20 min , I called the shop and OMG they want to charge me a arm and a leg. If I can do this for free I would be so happy. Anyone out there please help

Both seats having this issue or just the drivers?
I only have the 98 wiring diagram...but I assume it's similar/same.
You're going to need to use a multi meter o find the issue. You could try just unplugging either the elements or the module in the meantime (saves disconnecting the battery).
They should be located under the seat.

#18 of 24 2000 Suburban windows electrical
Apr 29, 2010 (12:35 pm)
One day I started my 2000 suburban. Last time I drove I had left the a/c & fans on full blast when I turned it off, & when I started it back up it stalled & went dead. It never stalls. So I turned off the a/c & tried again. It restarted fine, & hasn't stalled since. However, at that moment something happened. From then on the front & back passenger windows and the sunroof stopped working. The door locks & all other electrical works, but not the 2 windows or the sunroof! HELP! The dealer says "gee we never heard of this before" & it's $115. per hour to try to figure it out.

ok one day my 99 k2500 suburban just all of sudden started losing electrical power while i was driving. i assumed alternator was going pad so replaced it. that didnt help. the voltage meter in my dashboard goes up to the normal 14 and then drops down while driving and keeps fluctuating back and forth with the battery light going off and on. i then replaced my belt and tensioner. the problem got a little better but then worse. i realized that if i put pressure on alternator one way it charges rite then put pressure the other way it dosnt. so i try to see it move while doing so but it doesnt. also while doing that my engine idles different one way and then another when i change where i out the pressure. well this has been a problem for a while now but just recently my battery has been dying while i have truk off and i make sure nothing is on. i just dont know what the prblem is or how else i could go about fixing it.

Have battery and alternator 'load' checked at auto parts chain.
I'd also check for corrosion on the battery terminals, and if you have some I'd be looking for corrosion up inside the cable. You need to check power cable connection where it connects down on the starter, and you should also check the negative wire connection to block.
If all of those are good, then have the vehicle checked for parasitic current draw from the battery. There may be something that is drawing the battery down, when it's not supposed to be.

#23 of 24 2007 Suburban Electrical Issues

Along with many other problems I have had with my 07 Suburban, now I have an electrical issue. I heard a beeping noise twice in my truck yesterday while driving and this morning I wake up to a completely dead battery. Took it in for service this morning and waiting to find out answers. They replaced the battery less than a year ago. Has anyone else had this problem. Like I said this just adds to my list of problems with it.
#24 of 24 2000 Chevy Suburban 1500 cluster gauges not working
May 06, 2013 (9:26 am)
Transmission flushed, new filter, new fuel filter, new catalytic converters, new alternator. Gauges will go to zero, message center flickers battery, low fuel ( with 1/2 tank of fuel)and security. Battery is 2 years old. What is going on? It dies will driving, but can be restarted though it sputters etc when accelerating and will die again repeating the cycle. IS it electrical or fuel pump (never replaced) 230,000 miles
