    Question heated rear seats - help needed

    I know there are many threads about these but I used the search button and couldn't find the answer on some questions.

    I plugged in the rear switches above ashtray and they do light up whith the dashboard lightning.
    But, there is a green and a brown plug: does someone know which plug is for which seat?

    As the switches light up, I suppose that is a good sign, but still not certain if this means all the needed wiring is present. Had a quick look under the seat and I saw under each seat a sort of a double plug: one side has orange/ pink parts; other side has orange/yellow/pink parts... could see black and brown wires coming from under the carpet en 2 small red ones; one black cable is going to the end of the seat (I think seatbelt and/or active headrest ?). Does this ring a bell with someone? is this what is needed for the heater mats or should there be another plug?
    I know some on here installed them already and others tried, so someone must know

    (by the way it is a Signum with leather seats and heated front seats; heated rear seats are an option at Opel if leather seats are present)

    From looking at doing this myself in the past, here's a couple of piccies of plugs under my rear seats....

    This is the one plug that is connected, and I can only assume is the seat belt pre-tensioner connection/active headrest.



    This plug is coming out of the floor and not connected to anything and I'm sure is the heated seat connection.



    As for which wire is for which switch on the rear console,I thought the wires had little labels on them?

    To see if it will all work for you, I think you need to take the plunge and buy one heated pad and switch. Connect it all up and you will quickly see if the wiring is all in place to make it work.

    Big thanks for the pictures. Guess you have pictures of any detail of the car
    These are the plugs I have but couldn't see so clearly as on the pics. The second one must be it.
    Switches are already installed and as the kids saw them and pushed them in, there is no way back I'm afraid

    They are similar to the connector plugs found on the front seat with heater mats.
