Heated steering wheel

Hi all. I have a f80 with a heated steering wheel that suddenly stopped heating. When I press the button to activate the heated steering wheel, the light on the dash turns on and says activated. But the wheel never gets hot. Any ideas what could be wrong ?

Does the light on the actual switch come on and stay on, or does it cut off on its own after a short period of time? If it cuts off on its own shortly after, I've heard that this could be a sign that the heating element has failed in the wheel (hopefully this isn't the case for you).

My first intuition would be to check the fuses.

If you need a new heating Element or controller let me know I got one for sale.
