Default Its begun..heated seats with pics

So I had the chance to start to install the heated seats today. I have tested the wiring, all four of the heating pads, and the switches, and all looks good. I have all the power and grounds run, and ended the day with power, and ground at the console. I have not decided where to mount the switches as of yet, but check out the pics to see the progress. Much thanks must go out to 3 members- Geoff, BIll and the RandMAN. I would not have been able to do this without their help.

(The duct tape is good for labeling the wires)

PM sent BIll.

OK so I have the drivers seat back in the car- (but stupid me- I didn't take another pic once the seat was re-assembled and re-installed )
But here are some more pics. I've had some things that came up over the last few days, so unfortunatly, I have not installed the pads in the passenger side as of yet. Car is in pieces, can't wait for full re-assembly on tues. More pics to come!

Seat with lower pad, leather back on, for pic purposes, leather missing from seat back


Center console Junction box, passenger seat feed can be seen, but not yet fished under the carpet.

The addition of yet even more wiring under the seat, check out the blue connectors (should it ever have to be serviced)


Temporary switch, hangin' out the side of the seat. Im actually going to mount the seat heat switches on the side, I have to modify the bracket and the plate before I do that though.


A wonderful MOD indeed...toasty. What goober at Pontiac never thought to make this an option before 2000?
