and negative to produce heat.
I would like to install your seat heaters on my vehicle, but
I plan to purchase the OEM seat heater switches, can I use
the OEM switches with your kits?
A7. The answer to this question really depends on your electrical
knowledge, of course it is possible if you are electrically
inclined. We have installed many seat heaters on vehicles
using the manufacturers OEM seat heater switches.
Does your seat heater have off/low/high option?
A8. Yes, our seat heaters all have off/low/high options, just
like the OEM ones found in your friends luxury vehicle. The
seat heaters have a built in thermostat that will automatically
lower the temperature if it has reached the maximum.
Does your seat heaters have automatically shutoff if installed
directly to the battery?
A9. Of course not, the seat heater can considerably drain
your battery if left on. Unfortunately even factory seat heaters
that come in today's vehicles do not have this function. You
may install our seat heaters behind the accessory (like the
factory vehicles), meaning the seat heaters can only be turned
on if the ignition key is on.

or leather seat covers, they are paper thin, so you won't

covers down to the chair frame. They can be easily removed
with regular household pliers, and it is necessary to remove
all hog rings to make the job alot more easier.

Does your seat heater switch have led light?
A17. Due to overwelming requests from our customers, HeatedSeatKits.com
has developed the Innovative Seat Heaters
with dual temperature lighted switch. Low = green light and
High = red light. For more information, please click HERE.
Our Innovative Seat Heaters also includes an all new wiring
harness with better adhesive tapes.
If I purchase a dual unit today, are they wired together?
A18. A dual unit actually contains two single seat heater
kits, the reason why, is because each individual heater kit
must be operated by a individual switch. It would be silly
to turn on the seat heaters for both driver and passenger
seats when only one seat is occupied. Troubleshooting is also
alot easier because you can exchange parts to locate the source
of the problem.

A19. Yes, we have installed many seat heater switches on vehicle
doors panels, the most common place to install the seat heater

What is carbon fiber and the benefits?
Carbon Fiber is the latest standard of choice for OEM Seat
Heaters used by many new car manufacturers. The benefit of
carbon fiber that it is thread like and requires very little
voltage to produce a lot of heat. No one uses copper based
elements anymore (used ten years ago), they are outdated and
have high chance of breaking down, burn your seat covers,
and catch on fire. Our carbon fiber elements can be cut and
holes can be made in the middle to allow you to keep the shape
of your channels. This is something our competitors don't
have, which makes a good reason why you should try out our
