Q6. My stock oem seat heater element died, can you help me?
A6. We have a great solution for you, we sell the 12 volt seat heater replacement element for situations like this, all you need to do is remove the old seat heater element and replace it with our seat heater element. A significantly lower cost to repair this problem than your local dealership. We understand how difficult it is to find a single heater element, as we are the first to sell them in this market. The elements work the same way as a stove top element, you add positive and negative to produce heat.

Q7. I would like to install your seat heaters on my vehicle, but I plan to purchase the OEM seat heater switches, can I use the OEM switches with your kits?
A7. The answer to this question really depends on your electrical knowledge, of course it is possible if you are electrically inclined. We have installed many seat heaters on vehicles using the manufacturers OEM seat heater switches.

Q8. Does your seat heater have off/low/high option?
A8. Yes, our seat heaters all have off/low/high options, just like the OEM ones found in your friends luxury vehicle. The seat heaters have a built in thermostat that will automatically lower the temperature if it has reached the maximum.

Q9. Does your seat heaters have automatically shutoff if installed directly to the battery?
A9. Of course not, the seat heater can considerably drain your battery if left on. Unfortunately even factory seat heaters that come in today's vehicles do not have this function. You may install our seat heaters behind the accessory (like the factory vehicles), meaning the seat heaters can only be turned on if the ignition key is on.

Q10. I found a website that sells the same product for less, can you match it?
A10. Because we at HeatedSeatKits.com are the national distributors for seat heaters, if you find a price lower than ours for the same product, we will gladly match that price and discount the item to 15% off the competitors price.

Q11. Why are your prices so low?
A11. Because we buy in large quantities passing the savings down to you. We are distributors to over 3,500 suppliers in North America.

Q12. Can I become a installer or supplier for your products?
A12. Yes, for more information please contact 1-800-717-0106 for access to the reseller page.

Q13. Does your seat heaters work on cloth seats?
A13. Yes, our seat heaters will work well under cloth, vinyl, or leather seat covers, they are paper thin, so you won't even notice that they are installed!

Q14. What are hog rings?
A14. Hog rings are simply round clips that hold your seat covers down to the chair frame. They can be easily removed with regular household pliers, and it is necessary to remove all hog rings to make the job alot more easier.

Q15. How many kits do I buy? I would like to have seat heaters for the driver and passenger front row seats.
A15. You would require to purchase two kits (dual unit) as each kit is designed for only one seating area.

Q16. Will your seat heaters fit my vehicle?
A16. Our universal seat heaters are very customizable as we have not come across a vehicle that would not fit. We have installed seat heaters on anything from a motorcycle to a ferrari.

Q17. Does your seat heater switch have led light?
A17. Due to overwelming requests from our customers, HeatedSeatKits.com has developed the Innovative Seat Heaters with dual temperature lighted switch. Low = green light and High = red light. For more information, please click HERE. Our Innovative Seat Heaters also includes an all new wiring harness with better adhesive tapes.

Q18. If I purchase a dual unit today, are they wired together?
A18. A dual unit actually contains two single seat heater kits, the reason why, is because each individual heater kit must be operated by a individual switch. It would be silly to turn on the seat heaters for both driver and passenger seats when only one seat is occupied. Troubleshooting is also alot easier because you can exchange parts to locate the source of the problem.

Q19. Can I install the seat heater switches on the door panels?
A19. Yes, we have installed many seat heater switches on vehicle doors panels, the most common place to install the seat heater switches are the front dash below the CD Radio, vehicle seat panels, or near the gear box cover.

Q35: What is carbon fiber and the benefits?
Carbon Fiber is the latest standard of choice for OEM Seat Heaters used by many new car manufacturers. The benefit of carbon fiber that it is thread like and requires very little voltage to produce a lot of heat. No one uses copper based elements anymore (used ten years ago), they are outdated and have high chance of breaking down, burn your seat covers, and catch on fire. Our carbon fiber elements can be cut and holes can be made in the middle to allow you to keep the shape of your channels. This is something our competitors don't have, which makes a good reason why you should try out our product.
