2000 blazer drivers side seat heater stopped working

Well as the title reads the drivers side seat warmer has quit working on high and low both. My question is before I dig into it too deep, is there a fuse and or relay I can check before i do anything else? The seat warmer was left on for probably about 2 weeks straight by my wife while she was driving it and it just stopped working. So I don't doubt the heating element is burned up but before i decide to replace it or the entire cushion I want to check the "easy" things first,if they even exist to be checked. So any thoughts from anyone?

HTD fuse (20a) in the underhood fuse box...probably a problem with a element though. Disconnect the elements and measure the resistance of them, should be around 3 ohms or less. If one read "open" or is sky high, you found the problem. I think the elements are seperate from the seat coushion/pads on that one, but I may be wrong. Need to check with a parts dept to be sure.
