my van came without...I want heated seats...is it a dealer item ?
Heated seats in Florida???I installed them in my van. The first one was a learning curve, I would recommend getting someone to assist you. The cores are $50 on amazon and take about an hour to install, plus the wiring time of about and hour or 2. From my learning experience, forgo the hogring ties and use high quality zip ties to rebind the seat cover to the frame.
Buy an add a fuse and wire it to your fuse panel in a fuse that shuts off when the key is in the off position. For me, I have a second battery and have them wired to a switch panel so I can run them even when my van is off. Provides handy for colds days out surfing or kiteboarding and need to warm up.
I was nervous to do it myself but extremely happy I figured it out. I now know how to replace anything on my seat necessary. Watch a couple of youtube videos and you should be set.
This is the kit U purchased: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008D2LIRG/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&th=1
They now sell it with the hog ring pliers and rings if you dont want to use zip ties. Dont buy the pliers or rings from Home Depot or Lowes, those are for fencing and way too tough to use.
It gets cold in North Florida and you know it! We had flurries last winter! Just one of those things all my cars have had and really missed having them. It's hard to get the cabin warm so the bum heaters help expedite that process.Heated seats in Florida???
LOL, j/k, we had them in our cars when we lived there. :laugh:
I thought we weren't supposed to use covers on the upper part of the seats due to air bags. Isn't there a bag in the seat back or is it just the sensor that's in the seat to trigger the passenger bag if someone is seated in it?If I already have seat covers....
Thoughts on installing between the seat and seat covers?
The covers have a cutout to allow for bag deployment.I thought we weren't supposed to use covers on the upper part of the seats due to air bags. Isn't there a bag in the seat back or is it just the sensor that's in the seat to trigger the passenger bag if someone is seated in it?
They are available from RAM, IDK if dealers will retrofit, but i would be surprised if they wouldn't (they would just send it out). The OEM switch is mounted on the seat bottom at the side. I think it is just an on.off switch with no heat adjust-ability, I am used to being able to adjust the temperature.my van came without...I want heated seats...is it a dealer item ?
