Have a Dealer do it.

1. it will done right
2. It will be tied into your factory warranty and added to your sales code.
3. Dealer is responsible for making sure it works properly.

If you do it.
Not tied to the warranty not added to sales code.

Your Parts your warranty. Example you bought the parts YES mopar has a warranty on the part not your labor.

Just Have the dealer do it.

I think your right, i talked to the service department and they are going to install it and give me a discount on labor since i already have the kit. I made the appt for next Wednesday.

Re: Mopar heated seat kit install easy or not?

Perhaps an irrelevant question, but...

If you had also installed the climate controls that included heated-seat control, could they have integrated your seat heaters with it (not install the additional control panel by the shifter)?

The climate control is an easy do-it-yourself installation (see a couple of threads around here).

The kit Mopar sells is not the factory kit where it ties into the whole system.

as you can see it has 3 settings when factory only has 2.

Re: Mopar heated seat kit install easy or not?

Ah well....

Wonder if the factory heat pads were ordered (IE: replacements for existing factory-installed pads), if the harness is already there... Then, add the factory climate control with heater switch....

Just thinking about possible mods as these vehicles get older and parts are available from salvage yards.
