Did this video help you?

SuperDagod1: Can I just unplug my old heated seat from underneath and plug in this new pad right into the old plug so I can use the same switch? Instead of drilling a new switch?

DormanProducts: Dear APDTY, My name is Mark, and I develop installation videos for Dorman Products. Additionally, I manage Dorman’s YouTube channel ( www.youtube.com/user/DormanProducts). Recently, I came across your video and was impressed at how you detailed this repair and highlighted our part. As Dorman is always interested in posting user-generated content on its YouTube channel, would you be open to sharing your video and allowing us to post it to our YouTube channel? I would see to it that your video is properly attributed to you, and include a link to your YouTube page as well. Please PM or e-mail me (mventresca@dormanproducts.com) to discuss further details. Best regards, Mark

Habib Bakar: Hello mate. I really need advice on how I could fit them in on my half leather car seats. It doesn't have the fabrics to take off. I'm stuck. And also. Could you send me a link to the dorman heated seat kit so I could purchase. THANKS!!

Chris Thomann: what size fuse was used for the power window and/or will the heaters draw too much and pop it?

hoooboy: Man it's freaking cold outside... sounds like I will need to put that on my To Do List! thanks for the video!

BAMA GRAD: Why did you not vacuum up all that dirt when you had the seat out?????

jchasp: Installed this kit in the driver's seat of my 2014 Ford Focus (w/leather) today. Not so difficult, except for extracting and replacing the seat (it's powered, so I couldn't adjust it after I'd disconnected the battery.) The pads are a bit wide for the seat back in my car, but managed to fit. Very good video that gave me great tips! Thank you! BTW: Hog Clips are evil to reinstall!

DwDrums2000: Thanks! This video was helpful!

Menghan Xu: Hi, can I just put the heat pad on top of my cloth seat and put leather seat cover over my seat? do I still need to drill a hole on my seat? In my case what should I do? do I still need to take off my seat?

Jose Duran: If those are cloth seats are they susceptible to water shorting them out should coffee or water spill on them?

0125Bart: Watch out with disconecting the negative pole on modern cars. If you disconect the battery you possibly reset some computers. So your head unit may ask for a code wich is hard to find.

victor111262: wa about for cold is there any kit for that

Auto Parts Direct To You: @Vindeeni Yes the leather should use the same procedure. Thanks

zebfullmer: Did you find any chicken nuggets under that seat?

Tragic Hero: all cars should have a rubber floor option.

R.QUINTERO624 1000 % OAXAQUEÑO DE ♥: Gracias,thank you I was looking for a video just how to remove the seat cover from the crown vic and I think they could be washed now I have an idea thanks APDTY

Kyle J.: Great video! Just a question: When tapping the seat into a fuse port, will that one tap send power to both seats, or just one? If not, can you power two seats from the same fuse or will that create a power overload?

vallesrun: can you put this in a 04 single cab sierra but put 2 and hook up all too one switch/power source?

RedDogGonnit2000: Very well done. Good production and nicely narrated. I'm getting a set of heaters in the mail in a couple of days and can't wait to start my project. Thanks for taking the time to put this together.

turbobuick33: What is the part number for that kit?

Curtis J: Can I put my pads over the factory cloth

hpolo777: great video very informative

Knight31684: If you noticed the kit came with a fuse tap, he was just following instructions..call Dorman if you have a problem with that.

hp11208: @APDTY Cool.how much they go for.

Knight31684: Before I go taking out my seat real quick do you know how BMW upholstery is attatched? I have a 98 323is base model and heated seats were a option. Also, could I use factory BMW heated seat switches if the electrical is done correctly?

Julzilla: 1 person prefers freezing there ass of in the morning, literately.

InvisibleYetVisible: How long did this take to complete? Roughly?

SineWaveTV: "if i could move my hand that fast, id never leave the house" lol

Auto Parts Direct To You: The seat heater only draws about an amp of current, which is not enough to pop the circuit breaker, even when run in parallel with the window motors. The seat heater has worked great since installing it in this video and I have not had a single issue.

Auto Parts Direct To You: Correct, this car was a pretty basic vehicle, no fancy airbags on this one. :)

Auto Parts Direct To You: @turbobuick33 The Dorman part number is 628-040,, I added a link in our description to bring you directly to the part

Knight31684: Cant wait to do this in my older BMW

DrJayReaper1: Grt8 video it helped out a lot I can't wait to install heated seats in my car

Knight31684: I am as well, you should learn to spell your profession, Mechanic! If you respect yourself you are a Automotive Technician!...Dont take it to offense but come on man you are a doctor of cars! :)

hp11208: Nice,im thinking of getting one for the winter but some dont really work.

joey goode: try cleaning under the seat

Auto Parts Direct To You: @premomh It's definitely doable, but you would lose your high and low settings. The way the circuit is set up, when the heater is in low position, the current runs through both heater pads in a series-style circuit, when it's in high position, it runs them in parallel. So the only way you could wire a single heater pad per seat would be straight to the 12V source (through a switch of course), which would in turn put the heater pad on High whenever it is on.

ndchevy: Im kind of interested in what the options were lol

Auto Parts Direct To You: @LonelyWolf2494 Glad you found our information useful :) Good luck in your studies!

Auto Parts Direct To You: I think you mean just sitting them on top of the seat and then you sitting directly on the pads? They aren't really designed to work that way, they would likely become too hot without that layer of fabric between you and the heating element. But I could be wrong, If you give it a shot, please let us know the outcome of how it works. Thanks!

4bying: Do all or the majority of seats come apart like this? Or are some seats impossible to get inside of?

Curtis J: If I'm wraping my seats in tight leather covers c

Jesse Foulk: oh, before you seal up the back side of the seat I'd like you to install this 12 inch subwoofer this there. just kidding.

Michael Premo: Thanks for the video! One question I'm thinking about getting the kit but I was wondering how hard (in your opinion) it would be to splice it out so that each pad is on 2 separate seat bottoms (driver's and passenger's - just on the seat part not lumbar - then wire it up with 2 separate switches that I would purchase separately).. I was trying to get a closer look at the wiring but it was a little tough to see exactly. I own a 99 Jeep Wrangler.I have above average mechanical/electrical skills.

ndchevy: Also could you do a vid of hardwiring it into the fuse box??

Auto Parts Direct To You: This particular kit is designed to only work for 1 seat at a time. Each seat requires a separate switch to be hooked up. I am sure something custom can be made with the wiring, but the kit wasn't technically designed to operate like that.

Auto Parts Direct To You: @ndchevy Unfortunately we probably can't do a video on it at this time, but it is fairly simple to hardwire it in. You just need to find a thick power wire going to the fuse box that only has power when the key is turned on, you would then splice the main power wire into that wire. If hardwiring, I would recommend soldering the connection.

Paul Short: Nicely done. Well illustrated and narrated. Great instructional video. Thanks

Auto Parts Direct To You: Including the additional time it takes to video it, probably about 2 hours if I remember correctly.

Vindeeni: I have power leather seats on my 2003 Crown Vic. Are the seat and upholstery removed the same way in the video?
