    Are you using the original seat pads? If so which wires did you tap into?

    nope.............original wiring had 4 wires.
    they have a constant switched supply then a control line to vary the amount of heat and also a signal feedback line to acknowledge its been turned on.... So I don't believe that aftermarket on/off switches would work the OEM ones.

    Yeah i saw fronts there are 4 wires, and rear has 2 wires, just wondering if supplying voltage to them will heat them up and turning the heat dial up will increase their heat.

    As said yesterday, I stripped the front seats and fitted the aftermarket pads.

    It was easy as had my old driver's seat to strip first, so I could experiment with that.

    I've done it before on my vectra but was the rear seat.
