Can heated seats be added? And is it even worth the hassel ?
I added seat heaters to the back seats of my '02 King Ranch SCrew. It was actually fairly easy. In this truck the leather seat covers are held on by a couple of plastic clips, and some velcro where the leather is seamed together. The wiring is dead easy.
To make the job easier, I completely removed the back seats and unbolted the front seats so I could run the wiring.
The only problem I have with the units is that the switches provided don't have an auto shut off timer. If the kids turn them on and then get out for school, the seat heaters are on for the whole commute.
My driver's seat heat has given out on me. I may take the cover off that seat and see if I can figure out whether there's a short in the wiring, or whether the heater element is dead.
