    Default Heated Seats... Does it Just Require a Button/Knob??

    I have the elements and the box underneath the front driver and passenger seats it was there when i bought the car but don't have the button/knob, is it a case of just getting a button and wiring it up??

    Any help at all would be appreciated, Thanks

    I have a late 2007 Design 1.9cdti 150..

    if you get heated seat switches and pop off the blanks............have a look and see if you have the plugs/wiring in the dash.

    its possible at the age of car you have the wiring already in place.

    mines is a 2008 sri and its got all the wiring mate

    AFAIK the blanks are Vectra/Signum standard, but there are at least two types of VX switch that I am aware of, although they will probably both fit the same socket part number.

    There is a style for heated seat only, and another style which is for heated and ventilated (electric fans under the seat) seats.

    There may be other types, but I don't think so fella.

    make sure its vectra c switches you get.............as some people will sell you switches that are from an omega and they look the same, but the rear connections are totally different.
