no, they were for the WSS disable, and the Fan Override at the Track. I have chosen to go with a different direction, and the switches will be in a different configuration for the respective functions

the Rear Heated Seat switches will reside in the rear flip down center console of the seat. So that they are in a convinient spot and also can be hidden away if needed

Nice work Pat. Next you can do the front seats in my 99.
Heck, I already have the heated seat switch for the drivers seat... I'll contact you in 20 years when I get all the components together. LOL
