WOOHOOOO! Finally have mine 100% installed and working! In a funny twist I installed heated seat kits in 98 degree weather! Bwwuuhahahahahaha!

P.S. Thanks to Scott for an awesome DIY and the assistance provided.

Scott,

I'm about to install a remote starter and heated seats. In your DIYs you recommend to wire the power to an unused fuse location. How can I wire the remote and 2 heated seats to that location ? What wire gauge should I use ? Some pics would be great !

Thanks for the awesome DIYs.

Page 13 of the DIY shows a picture of both the seat heaters and my remote starter wired to the female spade terminal that connects to that unused fuse position. The female spade needs to be rated for the size/number of wires that it will hold. In my case, the remote starter power wire and the relay socket wire were both 16 AWG, so the 12 AWG female spade terminal was the correct size for two 16 AWG wires.

Good bladder control.

Actually, just price. At $20 less for a pair, I didn't see the need for the waterproof ones. On Crashy (my snow plowing Yaris) I did use one of the waterproof ones, as without doors or windows, the seats get a bit wet while I am plowing.

sorry to bring this back from the dead, but I just followed the instructions and got my seat heaters installed without any issues! Thanks so much for the wiring diagrams Scott!
