If it's cloth car seat upholstery, about the only thing you can do is try to match the colour and style with an heat-adhesive patch. Look in the upholstery aisle at a chain auto parts store or call in at your dealer. Easy to apply but not terribly reliable, I usually found a car seat cover worked best once a tear or stain was impossible to repair.

If the upholstery is plastic or leather, you're in luck! There is an amazing product available at the chain auto parts store (also your dealer) that comes in a little vial with a spatula shaped applicator built into the cap. Follow the directions carefully for a near perfect fill of the burn hole.
