wet switch

I installed the mopar heated seats in my 09 jk. Love them.... or loved them. Spilled a cup of water on the switch. I think I ruined the switch. Does anybody know if I can order just a new switch to plug in or do I have to order the entire heated seat package just to get it? Thanks for the help

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!

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
Was that ^^ for me?
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)

baddandy Put them in my 2013, no issues.

Wait... You got lumbar support????
01-07-2014 10:46 PM
Chrimbler 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!!

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?

dgallois 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).

AND:

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...

Hi there!! WOW!!! Please would you have a look at the invoice or ask the dealer what the part numbers are for the kit they used???? Any chance of a photo of where your rocker switches were installed also please??

Way to go!!

TNwoodsman Any updates for the 2013 heated seats problem?
01-28-2013 03:02 PM
dgallois Will do "M."... I'll gladly post the part number once/if it gets released.

789msg 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.

I concur, there was a screw up with my JK order and heated seats were not installed. I've tried a lot of avenues to get it added by the dealer and run into a wall. I have an inside connection with Chrysler Engineering and was told that the 2012 MOPAR kit will NOT fit the 2013's. Currently there is no MOPAR kit for the 2013's (though it is on the list develop/release - it isn't available yet) so SOL. The reasons the kit will not work is based on passenger weight sensors in the base cushion and the padding shape is different. You can't use the OEM switches for the very reasons already described well in this thread (can't program the CAN BUS etc). I also concur with what you discovered about Check Corp's 3 pad solution. They will not sell you a pad for the passenger seat because of the legal ramifications of impacting the weight sensor. I too called them and got that response, though I respect them for taking that stance.

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.

Vette man
heated seats

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

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.
11-08-2012 06:31 AM
en480c4 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.

Had that on my 2011 hemi Ram Sport model. Loved it in the summer but much tougher to do as it blows the air conditioning up thru the seat. It only worked well because seats were leather but only the center was perforated so the air naturally got channeled that way.
