    No heated seats!!!

    Why in the world, a Cadillac, would not have heated seats if it has leather ones? Mine doesn't, and it sucks during winter.

    Re: No heated seats!!!

    Why aren't they air conditioned? They suck during summer too.

    BTW it's 100+ daily here. Last thing on my mind is adding factory heat to seats.

    Re: No heated seats!!!

    I have an 06 that did not come with heated seats. Checked the web and found a good German-made OEM-style kit from Canada for $90. The heat pads were easily installed in the driver's seat, but the two-temperature switch was a little more work. I ended up drilling a hole in the plastic trim near the seat adjuster switches, and for power tapped into a switched circuit in the driver's side fuse box under the rear seat.

    With all the futzing around, it took about 3.5 hours. If I do the passenger side, it should take maybe two hours. If you're interested, I can send pictures and measurements of exactly where to drill the switch mounting hole.

    The end result is well worth the effort, and you CAN do this yourself (you do need one of those "stepped" drill bits from Harbor Freight).

    I am definitely interested in doing this! If you wouldn't mind, I would appreciate any info you can share on the install.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the info, but I don't wanna bother adding and drilling holes in it. Firewalker's interested though

    Good luck firewalker.

    I was actually looking at a STS with 40k miles on it. My wife said no! She likes the CTS.
