Well I am an EE so the wiring isn't really that complicated, the problem is the OEM setup is designed to use a control unit in between the ATC and the seat heater module which neither the Katzkin or Mopar products provide directly. However, my plan, having disassembled the ATC once, is to rather solder new leads onto the conductors attached to the heated seat switches and bring those leads all the way back to the katzin control module. My struggle right now is the OEM heat seaters use a 3 position rotary style switch and the Katzkin heater us a 2 position toggle switch. I suspect I will need some kind of relay in between to convert from one style to the other.
I will say these Katzkin heaters get INCREDIBLY hot, by far the "hottest" seat heaters I have ever used. My wife is a heated seat junky and even she has to turn these off after just a few minutes. For the time being I also had the switch located on the side of the seat, but I find it like to pop out of it's mounting hole, I have to keep pressing it back in. Does your lock down properly?
