I'd be interested if anyone in the northern NJ are has done this and wouldn't mind doing mine, I'd of course pay for it...Its really cold and the quicker it could be done from experience, the better!

Not as pretty but the heated seat pad I've been pretty happy with is in my Leaf store below. $20 ish.

Sorry to bump up such an old thread but I'm wondering if anyone has the factory diagram for the connection of the passenger side heated seat. I went through this discussion (and some of the related wiki items) but didn't find that info. I had to swap my original non-heated seat out because of a broken occupancy sensor. The replacement is heated and I'd like to hack the wiring to get it working but I've had no luck going through various PDFs found here including PG (power supply, ground, circuits), SE (seats), HAC (heater and AC control), HA (heater and AC).

If anyone has a lead on where I can find the breakout of that seat heater connection I would be very grateful.

Thanks!
Mike

This is the way we'd like people to post! Instead of having 10 topics on the same thing, use an existing one so the info can be found again easily. Thanks. Sorry I can't help with this.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Thanks, I saw that but I was assuming that was a factory switch in the console, which I'm hoping to skip installing. There is a single connection at the bottom of my replacement seat and at first I couldn't figure out why it had so many wires, but then I realized it was dealing with the routing of the rear seat heater switch in addition to power for the front seat. If I can figure out that one connection, I think I can use that seat side switch to control the front seat instead of the rears.

Be a little careful about which place you decide to pull power from. There is a position in the fuse box (even in the 2011 model) designated for seat heaters. IIRC, that position allows power to be pulled even if the car is off. It's easy to leave the heater in an on position and totally run down the battery (I think the 12V only--in my case the car was plugged in, so the 12V won't charge from the traction battery). The solution is a relay that connects to a circuit that is only live if the car is on.

This is what I recall from my install of 2012 seats in my 2011 Leaf.
