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...

|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 10:37 PM|
|TNwoodsman||Any updates for the 2013 heated seats problem?|
|01-28-2013 04:02 PM|
Will do "M."... I'll gladly post the part number once/if it gets released.
|01-28-2013 01:24 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 11:49 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 09:08 AM|
|en480c4||I'm pretty sure that's where I got my kit. It arrived quickly.|
|11-09-2012 08:54 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 02:41 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 08:59 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 06:43 PM|
|Nomadarmy||great looking install...makes me re-think it now|
|11-07-2012 02:39 PM|
|topless2012||The 82212697 Kit retails for $305. however dealer's are selling them on ebay for $273. do a seach with the part number on ebay. hope this helps|

But the Highest setting is just about scalding hot. I use it only to start it from cold, then switch down. Even the lowest setting can get a bit warm.
I would say I use Low 75-80% of the time, medium maybe 15% on really cold days, and like I said I only basically use High to heat it up quicker when first starting the engine
|11-07-2012 02:02 PM|
|Vette man||Can you tell me the costs of the items and the switches to complete the job?|
|11-07-2012 01:39 PM|
|11-07-2012 01:21 PM|
Theres and after sale complete add on kit part# 82212697.
On Wranglers from the factory (option code "JPM") the Heated seat module is part# 68138715AA.

After doing quite a bit of research, it appeared that the factory seats can't be added because it runs through the CAN BUS, and wouldn't be something easily programmed or added. I even bought the factory switch panel to determine if I could integrate the factory switches with an aftermarket kit, but they essentially act on contacts on a circuit board, with no real allowance for the addition of a secondary switch or wiring.
I was concerned about the membrane momentary switches that come with the Mopar kit, so I ended up adding the permium rocker momentary switch from Check Corp., who provide the Mopar kit. They weren't cheap, but are fairly robust and look and feel much better than the membrane switches. I also went with a fairly non-standard switch location, and am very pleased with it. There was plenty of harness length with the switches, and plenty of space in this area of the dash. And they're very easily accessible for both the driver and pasenger.
The driver's side is the exact mirror of the passenger side.
And just so people know, the Check Corp./Mopar kit has 3 heat levels. No complaints, very fast heating times and decent variability between the levels... I've had them before where it was like "Why bother?" because they were all similar, or low was barely there and hot was too hot. These don't have those issues.

How many temp settings does your kit have? On the OEM buttons have High/Low. Is it the same on yours? The lights make it look like there maybe more options.
|11-07-2012 09:55 AM|
|Vette man||has anyone tried using the Mopar aftermarket heated seats with the Mopar factory dash switch? Are you able to wire it to those switches instead of the switches that aftermarket comes with|
|11-07-2012 07:56 AM|
|Jdpatt12||I'm having the dealer install heated seats on my jku and nerf bars. The pic of yours is okay with me if that's how they install the switch. Wife's Compass has the heated seats and it was a must have for the jku. Just waiting on parts to come in.|
