Thanks. I tried to make it not look too much like an aftermarket add-on. Bottom line cost is around $70 and about 3h of work.

alpac Yesterday I finally installed a seat heater kit similar to this one https://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-M...FUnDgh&vxp=mtr
Today I tested it in 29℉ and it worked really good. Here are pics of the two switches front and rear and a pic of the front heating element being installed under the front seat cover.

Thanks but I was not asking about where to power the seat heater from but where to get the +12v ignition to trigger the relay and Techdude2000 gave me the answer. For powering the seat heater element I will go straight to the battery since the seat heater kit comes with its own fuse.
Thanks again folks.

Thanks

Before I do my own research and start testing wires with a voltmeter do you have any suggestion/idea where to get the ignition +12v somewhere under the seat?
