this solution worked great for a bout a two weeks, then despite having connectivity in the ribbon, it does not heat up. It sounded like you weren’t expecting your solution to work forever. Did it give out on you after a little bit because of the increased resistance and the crimp?

Mine is still working even after all this time (over 2 years ago). If your heater element is still connected (low resistance) then the fault is somewhere else. Trace the resistance of connections back through the switch to the plug to find the fault.
