Jen Rossey: Could I install these on an electric wheelchair? The wheelchair has 12V batteries.

Kim Fazil: heated seat

snnnoopy: I have a 2011 Dodge Ram and the dealership sub contracted the heated seats when I bought the truck. I'm having a problem where the fuse is smoldering, blue fuse, and it drains my battery. The wire for the seats go through the fire wall, attach to a relay in 4 plugs and then an inline fuse and then to the battery. 4 of the 5 prongs on the relay, one goes to the fuse and battery, one goes to the seats, one is ground and I can't figure out what the 4th connection is for. Can you shed any light on this?

Auto Parts Direct To You: This kit is available at amazon.com

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?

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.

Best regards,

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

DwDrums2000: Thanks! This video was helpful!

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

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?

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

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.

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!

InvisibleYetVisible: I'm very tempted by this mod. I'm in the UK, but there's companies selling this kit (the one you used) as low as £38. That is so cheap for heated seats. An OEM set of heated seats is what £200 second hand and they're unlikely to be colour matched (an added option on my car). Yep, very tempted. I might try whip the passenger seat out and see how hard it is to get the fabric off. If it's easy, I'll buy the kit. I don't want to buy the kit and find the fabric needs un-stitching.

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

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

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!
