|baddandy||No, I put a cheap $50 kit from e-bay in it after Thanksgiving and have had hot buns everyday this whole winter.|
|02-02-2014 07:10 PM|
|TheDirtyFresh||So just to be clear you put the mopar kit in a 2013 without issues?|
|01-09-2014 11:17 PM|
|baddandy||2011-2012 have an AB sensor in the exact same place and they have kits in them without issue.|
|01-09-2014 07:33 PM|
|dgallois||Yes Chrimbler and thank you baddandy. I didn't open up the seat yet to see what this sensor looks like to see if it can be accommodated. I spoke with Checkcorp and they will not install passenger seat base on the passenger lumbar for "liability" reasons. I got the same storey from 3 Chrysler dealers and the after-market guys that they use.... Groan!|

If it was, mine is a 2012, all 4 pads working, no problem. Warm bum/back and a happy g/friend!
How Big and where is the sensor? I know with the pads I got you can cut some out (for a 'valley' in certain seats)
|01-08-2014 11:20 PM|
|baddandy||Put them in my 2013, no issues.|

Thanks for the photo, nice job - that's exactly how i'd like it to look. What year is your Jeep and did you get all (4) pads working? My dealer says that on the 2013's Jeep changed the seat construction and that they will not approve putting the heating element in the bum (seat) part of the passenger seat as it will impact the new SRS airbag sensor. What the hell it the point of only heating the back or lumbar on the passenger seat. What would be so hard about releasing a heating pad with a cut out for the SRS sensor??
thanks again for your post

Why do you need the mopar kit?...while you're all worrying about spending a fortune, I spent $80 on eBay, 2 hours of my time and I now have warm toasty buns!!
|01-07-2014 10:14 PM|
|dgallois||I agree... I'm really upset about that and on hold with doing the upgrade. I can't believe there isn't a work around.|

|DASFREAK||How did it turn out? Pics?|
|05-17-2013 09:23 AM|
Www.sure-fit.com is the website for the company that did my install.
I will post pics today. Its raining out there now.

Just googled this:
2007-2013 Jeep Wrangler Heated Seat Kit
Website states: Available for 2007-2013 Jeep Wrangler: Each kit contains separate heating elements for Front Driver and Passenger seat cushions and seat backs, Plug and Play wiring, 3 Temperature Control High/Med/Low and Detailed instructions for easy installation with a "sale" price of $262.20 (Part# 82212697).
Jeep Wrangler 4-Door Heated Seats (Part No: 82212697): MoparOnlineParts.com
Jeep » Wrangler » 2007-2013 4-Door Jeep Wrangler Mopar Accessories » Interior
Model(s): Jeep Wrangler 4-Door
Model Year(s): 2011 2012
Part Number(s): 82212697
Same $262.20 price.
Now notice the disappearance of the "2013" from the Model Years(s) below, which conflicts with the line above 2007-2013... Damn it!
There is detailed 23 page installation manual on this website (PDF) if you have a look.
I'm still not sure if it's a typo on the "MOPAR" site that it doesn't include the 2013's because the same part number on the "LeePart" website does...
|05-17-2013 06:27 AM|
YOU GOT a "4" pad kit for your 2013???
Way to go!!
|05-16-2013 07:41 AM|
|TNwoodsman||Update: The dealership I bought from installed aftermarket heated seats in my 2013 JKSU (May 14th 2013). They used the high quality rocker switches, and I am very happy with the install. The passenger seat got lumbar and seat portion heaters. I am assuming they used the Mopar kit.|
|05-10-2013 09:37 PM|
|TNwoodsman||Any updates for the 2013 heated seats problem?|
|01-28-2013 03:02 PM|
Will do "M."... I'll gladly post the part number once/if it gets released.
|01-28-2013 12:24 AM|
Would you pass on to your friends at Chrysler that I'm waiting for the kit too. So they'll sell at least two .
I have a generic carbon wire seat heater that I was going to install. I pulled the drivers seat apart to see what's going on and after some more research and contacts with Check opted to throw in the towel for the time being. I may open this can of worms up again in the spring when I've got some more time. I didn't pull apart the passenger seat to look at the sensor yet.

2013 Heated Seats
I say a 3 pad solution is no solution and so I'm waiting for MOPAR to develop and release their 2013 kit. I won't be holding my breath, but I will check in every now and then.
Best of luck

|en480c4||Yup. The PN was noted earlier in the thread. It has the correct plugs for the Mopar controller. If you're ordering it, just note that you're ordering the premium switches for the Mopar kit.|
|11-09-2012 10:49 AM|
want to make sure I got this right. Used the Mopar part #82212697 with the Check corp premium switches and there were no issues in using them? Can't seem to get Check corp to answer my question since I don't want to use there 3 pad system.
|11-09-2012 08:08 AM|
|en480c4||I'm pretty sure that's where I got my kit. It arrived quickly.|
|11-09-2012 07:54 AM|
|Vette man||I have been searching the net and here I believe is the best price on MOPAR part 82212697.http://stevewhiteparts.com/$259.92|
|11-08-2012 01:41 PM|
|Vette man||This makes no sense to me. I got a hold of Check Corp. they actually make the seat heaters for the Mopar Jeep Wrangler. I asked about just getting them from Check corp and was told that the 2013 wrangler and I believe 2012 have sensors in the passenger seat for air bag. There fore they only sell the heaters for seats with 3 pads, NO pad for passenger seat bottom because of this sensor. Now you can still get the 4 pads from MOPAR made by Check Corp. What is wrong with this picture?|
|11-08-2012 07:59 AM|
|Vette man||Thanks for the info en480c4. If anyone is interested in the mopar heaters there is a vendor on this site Mopar owner parts that has as good a price as ebay.|

It took me around 4 hours to do both front seats. I'd read that some people had been able to do the install inside the Jeep, but removing the seats wasn't a big deal at all. It was nice having them on a bench to work on. And I used the trick to replace the cut hog rings with small zip ties on the seat bottom... Pull them tight, cut the tail and rotate them around so the bulky part tucks into the cushion.
The premium switch set was $80 shipped. Like I said, not cheap for what you get, but I have no complaints. You can find the contact info for Check Corp. on their website... Say you're looking for the premium switches for your Jeep/Mopar kit (PN SWP-EC4-2RNDM) and they can take care of it right over the phone. I had a contact name I found in thread elsewhere, but I cleaned out my wallet, so I can't seem to find the post-it note with the info.

|warbird24||How many of you installed them yourselves? I know some interiors are easier to do than others. Just wondered how well this went.|

|Nobozos84||anyone ever hear of or think of making their driver seat " cooled " like in a Benz or BMW ?|
|11-07-2012 05:43 PM|
