    Default illuminating heated seat switches in facelift Sri?

    Hello all

    I bought some heated seat switches a while back. I dont have heated seats but wanted to put more items in the dashboard.

    I want them to light up (will change to blue) but i have no idea where to start.

    Bigmac did explain it to me when we were at trax but that was sometime ago and i can't remember most of what he said. Must be getting old.

    Can someone enlighten me please (pun intended) as to the best way to achieve this.

    Many thanks

    Chris

    easy way to do it is to remove the radio, you need to connect the thin brown wire from the heated seat switch to another thin brown brown one from the switch below.

    Thanks very much lads for the info. I missed that how to of Ian's.

    Seems to be quite simple from what i can see which is a bonus.

    I can hear the misses groaning already lol.

    Right just have to get hold of some tools to get the radio out.

    Cheers

    You only need to follow my howto if you dont have the plugs already in situ behind the switches Chris. If the plugs are in situ then Dean's spot on (as always of course ), you just need to connect the earth wire on the switches to earth as normally the heated seat completes the circuit.
