Pre-Wired Heated Seats

I wanted to know if the 2.5S are prewired for Heated Seats. If so, would I just have to get the heating elements for the seats and the switch for the console??

Im curious aobut this as well. When I looked under the hood and inside the fusebox next to the battery it does contain the fuse for heated seats, although mine is not included in the package. I have a 04 3.5SE

I think it is prewired if you have at least the convenience package, not possitive though.

why would you need the element? it would be safer to get the actual heated seats and then wire them using the correct relays and things.

Well I was thinking of getting the custom leather seat covers and then adding the heating elements to the seats.

Getting the actual seats cost more than the work above.

you would have to install that element in such a way that you wouldnt start a fire in either your seat or the electronics. heating elements use a lot of amperage. youd have to wire your car accordingly using relays and switches that can handle the higher amp load.

If you have cloth seats you do not need heated seats, that for leather seats.

The "elements" that he's talking about are the sealed entities that exist under the leather wrap on cars equipped with heated seats. They are not dangerous in any way, and cannot be installed improperly unless the person doing the work is a complete and total moron. They look just like heating pads (like the ones you buy at the store), and they basically just sit in between the seat foam and the leather wrap (or cloth if you wish - a lot of cars now come with heated cloth seats, so it's not just a "leather-only" option anymore).


Wiring is simple, but careful attention must be made to keep high current wires away from the heater switches on the console. High current wires will get hot and can melt the plastic in the console. Proper relays are necessary, and may even be pre-wired into the car already. Pull the console apart (since you have to do that anyway to install the heated seat switches) and see if there are harnesses already there ready to plug into the heater switches. You should also see a harness underneath the seat to power the heating elements. If you do not see any of these harnesses, then it's not pre-wired and you'll have to do a custom wiring job. I can draw up a simple diagram if necessary. Check to see if you have the pre-wiring first, and if not, PM me with your e-mail address and I'll send you one.

HeatedSeatKits.com - The Future is Warm
check it out. the clicking is very annoying though on that page.

Lots of cars come with cloth heated seats. Whoever said heated seats were for leather only. Thats like saying summer tires are only for sports cars.

^This post implies they were for leather only, which is not the case at all.

Ok this wasn't made very clear in this post, but I have a 2.5S with cloth seats, I'm about to get a set of leathers but the driver's side is a power seat, not so sure about the heated part.
But does anybody know of the car is at least prewired for the power seats?
Thanks
