Ok so i think im going to order this kit for Cooling the seats it also has the heat seat option in it also
so what would i need to do will this work with the seville wich already has heated seats
so anyone done this before put cooled seats in ?
how did it work out for you

i guess i just have to take the heat pad out of the seat and heat components out and replace it with this unit and parts
but is the heat option built into anything els ? will i loose anything els when removing the factory heat option ?

hmm.. well if your heated seats are operational still I would just get the cooled kit and install that because the OEM heated seats are built into the leather stitching so you could just use this as a add on, but if your heated seats dont work anymore then i would go with the kit seems ok although im a bit skeptical about the fans they look like computer fans.. otherwise go for it I cant imagine you would hurt a whole lot doing this..

I reread your post no you wont loose anything else from your car except your heated seat buttons will be inoperable, but as i said the heated seats are built in from the factory at least 00 and before that are.

well the kit said you buy the heated as an add on 75 bucks, i would just get the cooled kit and install it under your seats and leave the factory heated alone because thats not realy a pad its more of just wires running through the leather

I might look into this as well since when I got my car neither of the seat heaters worked. I have been reading that the $$ and effort to replace them is not worth the lack of reliabilty... Don't know how true it is, but when I had to fix the lumbar in my '94 sts, it was such a pain to do, but when I was able to finally drive without a phonebook behind my lower back, it was all worth it. Winter without heated seats is a pain, but I have lived with it before. I guess I'll check out how much work it is to do the OEM replacement or this. I do know that I am sick of seeing those two heated seat buttons mocking me when it's cold, just sitting there, all lit up and ready to be pushed, just to do nothing but say "hi" & "lo".

$$$ to fix a heated seat? Yeah, if you bring it to the stealership. By the elements from GMPD for like $40/each and then proceed to find a local upholstery shop. Willing to bet you could fix both seats for less than $350 including parts and labor. Local shop around here charged me $80/seat to put in elements I provided.

alot of ppl don't realize you can take your seat problems to the Body shop at the dealerships
they only charge like around 46-48 dollars and hour for work atleast at the ones near me
alot of time i take my car in to the dealer i go right to the body shop for my estimate the body shop is run by someone els usualy diferent then the one who runs the service department and for some things the body shop can take care of for you i have found this out int he past i had the body shop change the airbag in my old lincoln ones when it needed to be services also had a body shop change the break pads for me ones at the dealership the only part of the dealer that is a stealership besides sales is service but body and collision can do some things also and they are not rip offs
