Yes have seen wires and seat heater element (mat) fail, kids spilling drinks on then ect....
There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate
Just looked at one on a Range Rover was about $500 to fix hopefully Acura is cheaper.
