If your wipers are completely failed, you are not looking at a relay issue. Check fuse #20 first - that does pertain to the system. If it is OK, then you are typically looking at a switch or motor. It will require circuit testing.
A blown relay will prevent the wipers from operating as will a fuse. Check the fuse first, then check the relay.

I want to make sure I understand your problem .

You mentioned when the heated seats are on high they don't heat at all.

Do they heat up any on low? If so it sounds like a bad switch .
If they are not heating at all. Then it sounds like the dealer did not dig very deep.

Heated seats are pretty simple set up . A couple of simple test would tell them where the problem is.

Maybe a independent shop is the way to go . A little more personal and most of us will take the time to find root of the problem.

Feel free to bring by and get a second opinion .
