2014 Heated Seat OEM factory component list

At the risk of getting hammered on this, I have not been able to find a list that spells out ALL the necessary components to install factory heated seats in a 2014 (not the mopar kit). I would imagine it would include a completely new lower switch panel (along with it's PC board). The power module (that also provides 115V I think), wiring, and seat heater elements(or the assembly they come in). Lastly, a flash at the dealer for the CAN bus to see it.

Does this exist somewhere? I'd like to understand what it takes to put heated seats (that are factory) in a Sport model with cloth seats.

Thanks for any insight!

It does not have to be that involved. There is a Mopar kit to add it. I had the kit negotiated into the price of my leftover 2013. I am picking it up tomorrow and will let you know how it went.

I think the OP might be seeking the "factory look" switches up on the dash, rather than the Mopar kit's console mounted switches.

FYI here is what the Mopar install from the dealership looks like. Sorry for the shadows, will try more later if interested.

New Mopar heated seat kit for 2013/2014 JKUL?

So I have read that the Mopar kit did not work on 2013/14's due to the airbag sensor in the passenger seat and the element was integrated into the cushion. I'd be interested in this newer kit if it really does work in a 2014. Is there a new one (and part no.)? for 2013s' and 2014's. This one only goes up to 2012's for applicability. http://www.mopar.com/part/82212697

My OP was based on this being the only option to add a heated seat (after the fact) that was recognized by Jeep to 2013/2014 MY.

Thanks,

Dale

PS. I do prefer the factory switches in the console but could live with the ones shown.

I just bought my 2013 last Thursday and the dealer just finished the install this am, so all I can say is it worked for me. Wish I could give more details, but I just paid for it, the dealer did everything else.

I was also told at the dealer that they couldn't install them due to airbag sensor in my 2013, unless I wanted just a drivers heated seat

BUMP... Sort of surprised this hasn't been accomplished by someone.

I didn't know they would not fit a 2013 when I negotiated it with the dealer.

Somehow, the dealer got them installed and they are working. As far as I can tell, it IS the regular MOPAR heated seats and they both heat up.

I guess I just got lucky, but it may be worth a call to your dealer.

Can you confirm there are two pads in the passenger seat? I believe that's where the issue was with the mopar kit.

Quick, ram into a tree and let us know if the airbags still work.

I was also told by the dealer that they couldn't install after factory. Of course that really means that THEY couldn't, not that it can't be done. I went ahead and waited until I could find one with factory heated seats instead.

Glad yours worked out for you. Sounds like you found a good service department that's willing to find a way to get something done.

I don't think that is the Mopar kit, those switches are from an aftermarket kit of which I have installed quite a few of them. They are only low and high as the mopar switches have 3 heat settings as advertised in that link.

I may have to talk to my dealer then. T hey said they would do the Mopar ones, I specifically asked. They are only 2 settings, plus off. They do stay in the previous setting when the car is off. Would have been nice if I had remote start.

Oh well. They do work well, both on the bottom and the back

Like the location, what does it look like inside your console? Are wires visible/exposed?

TIA

I have a 2014 Rubicon with cloth seats and the factory heaters. I wouldn't bother installing them. They take forever to get warm, never do get hot, and shut off automatically after 30 minutes.

Waste of money, IMHO.

There is a thread on here somewhere about how lame they are.

My wife's Mazda's seats will fry an egg on them on high and get hot within a minute or two. That's the way they should be, otherwise, what's the point?

I have a 2013 sport that did not have factory heated seats but I purchased factory 2013 10th anniversary Rubicon red leather seats that have the factory heating. I also purchased the factory gang of switch's that have the heated buttons if I purchase the heated seats module that goes under the seats and add the fuse in the fuse box can the dealer turn on the option in the can bus to make it work?

I think you need to ask your dealer, if they would be willing to do such.

My 2015 Sahara has factory leather with heated seats and I've been really happy with how warm they get and they seem to heat up pretty quick.

I think I can get the dealer to do it just not sure if its possible. Anyone know where the heated seat module would be located in a jeep that has heated seats?

Maybe check the fuse box instead?

When I bought my 2014 JKU in February I was told that there is no 'kit' for the 2014s from Mopar and that I'd have to go with their aftermarket kit...I said OK and they installed it before pickup.

They put the (same) switches in a different place, on the flanks of the console sorta opposite your knee. I prefer that as I know I'll invariably drop some coffee on the position shown in the pic above. The seats work fine but it's absurd that they don't offer a kit that makes use of the factory switch locations...

So, is the consensus that the passenger seat airbag sensor and cover fasteners are not an issue? I just ordered a 2015 Wrangler Sport S and would like to add seat heaters. I recently added the Dorman's to my wife's Liberty with relative ease. But it sure looks like the fasteners for the passenger side seat cover are problematic. ...Just looking for clarification prior to buying a kit.

I ordered a kit and it comes with heating pads for the driver seat and back cushion. For the passenger seat, there's only one for the back cushion. Have yet to install but at least there's something you can get.
