Heated Seat Wiring/SPOD

Just installed a warmseats kit under new trek armor covers in my 13 JKU, currently running the driver seat off of a 10A fuse tap in the M9 slot.

I didn't want to run both seats off of a single 10A fuse tap after seeing that each set of 2 pads comes with its own 10A fuse and the OEM fuses are 20A for front heated seats. I was thinking of trying to run another fuse tap in M7 for the passenger seat and moving the driver seat to M8 (I think its only place that both taps could physically fit into the fuse box) .... has anyone done this?

I also got to thinking that I should just drop the $$$ and get a spod, if I can run the seats off of that. I already have the switches mounted in the console, so could I use a single slot/switch in the spod as an on/off to provide power to the seats and then use the seat switches once the spod switch is on?

Thanks for any help/advice.

shouldn't be too hard to do. use the spod wiring to supply power to the relay that drives the seat heaters. i can look up exactly how you can do it when i'm not on my phone.

bringing this thread back to life... I'm thinking of doing the same thing, using an sPod to wire up aftermarket seat heat and use the rockers to control the heat. Any insight?

As was stated above, it should work without much of a problem, though dependent upon how your sPOD is wired, you might need to be conscious of leaving the seats on when you exit your Jeep. This could probably corrected by adding a relay that is triggered by an ignition on circuit.... just a thought
