I think it is a real shame too, as I think that this is one of Mercedes nicest looking sedans- only 2nd to the 1981-1991 S-Class sedans.
Hope you get all of your electrical problems worked out.
It sounds like an electrical short in some wiring. I have heard of a lot of electrical problems with the 1992-1993 S-Class sedans. I was considering one a while back and passed on it because of this. I have seen a couple of these on E-Bay that had caught fire due to electrical shorts. One caught fire at the battery and one was under the hood.

Like someone else already said- just pull the fuse to the heated rear seat.
1991 Lincoln Town Car Executive (33k miles)
1991 Cadillac Sedan DeVille (77k miles)
1992 Toyota Camry LE (177k miles)
1972 Chevrolet Caprice Kingswood Estate 9-passenger wagon (44k miles)
1973 Pontiac Grand Ville 4-dr hardtop sedan (94k miles)
1988 Mercedes 300SEL (was mine, now mothers)
