    Hi,
    Wondering what fuse would control the center console. The buttons for the heated seats (not lighting up) and rear window stopped working.
    Thanks!
    lemme clarify.
    The heated seat do not work, and the lights don't come on. Rear window also won't roll down. The fuse for the heated seats is OK (I replaced already).
    The seats do move, and can't find anything else thats not working.
    Is there a fuse specifically for the center console? If so,whats that called in fuse diagram?

    Did you have the top of the console off? It's not uncommon to forget to reconnect the wiring harness that goes to those three switches.

    Well, take it off and check the harness where it plugs in just under those three switches. It's conceivable that it wasn't snapped in all the way and just dislodged itself. The circuits are all different so it's not a fuse issue, it's a wiring issue in a spot where the wiring for all three runs together, and the most likely culprit is the harness connector.

    To take off the cover, grab the lip hard by pinching it between your fingers at the cupholder, and pull up sharply. This will release one or two of the tabs that hold the cover to the base. Then work around the perimeter and undo the other tabs in a similar fashion. From there the wiring and harness are easily visible and accessible.
