Sounds like it got burned up. Typical in Jeeps. Best to pull apart the whole assembly and start digging. I would start with the control module first.

If the resistance value falls outside of this range, perform the Repair Procedure.

I called the dealer and gave them my VIN # and I suppose mine is not on the recall... which sucks because from what i read, im having the same issue has the ones recalled. But whatever, ill go to the dealer and get a quote. Maybe take on the job myself of replacing the heating element.
