seat heater does not work in 2004 buick lesabre

My seat heater does not work. When you push on the switch it does not always go in and then to show it is on low the switch does not always push in correctly. So I'm thinking my problem is just with the switch not the heating element. Although the garage said the code showed it would be the seat heater.

Any ideas?

If you can get under the seat to the connector and have a voltmeter, disconnect the connector and check for voltage on the feed half with the ignition in run and the switch on. If no voltage, it is probably the switch. If you do have voltage, then switch the meter to ohms and probe the seat end of the connector for continuity or for an open circuit. if you find an open circuit, the seat heater element is bad.
