Adding OEM Heated Seats to MY14

Does anyone know if it possible to have the 8.4 programed to run OEM heated leather seats in a MY14 that did not come with heated seats?

Doing DD on purchasing OEM leather front / rear seats to replace the cloth seats that are showing wear

Seems as if the seat harness is the same throughout the model line up

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. #68227511AA: WIRING. Power Seat. Tag # D4CW59163N1.

and a harness would be needed to make the rear heated seats to work...

Addtional info:

Nope dont want to get Katzkin after market & Yes thinking of trading in on LTD that comes standard with leather

Thanks!

Re: Adding OEM Heated Seats to MY14

that's funny you posted this, I just picked up some SRT rear seats last weekend and was wanting to hook up the heated seats as well. I was contemplating on where I would mount the switches, if they really need to be in the back of the center console or if I could mount some switches say down near the adjustment handle is. Figured I wouldn't shoot for factory switches and all that just because of the unnecessary costs involved. Was thinking something like these: https://www.amazon.com/Sports-Import.../dp/B00F3DW354

some of the salvage sellers sell the center console with the seat sets that has the switches...thats the route i'm looking into.

so did you just get rears or fronts as well? MY14?

my thoughts are the harness connects to the center console and then runs under the carpet to the rear seats. need to get into a LTD, Overland or Summit to see what i can see.

still need to know where that heated seat module is??

i think that link above is the harness that plugs into the rear seats and runs to the center console...or the harness on that piece you have plugs into the rear seats???

theoretically thinking out loud here...

it looks as if this is not a plug and play EZ add - unfortunate. it seems the dealer needs to update/add a sales code to the jeep for the 8.4 system to run the heat module. they "should" be able to add the heated seat option of an Altitude to the jeep as it is based off a Laredo. they shouldnt have to use the SRT option code as im sure the heat modules are the same across all models. Im sure you will have to provide them with direction on what to do as this is "outside the box"

others are having the dealer do this when adding turn signal mirrors to Laredos from LTD's.

if you dont have a 8.4 system i dont think programing alone will work

next time you visit the dealer ask them if they are wiling to look into doing this and update us!
