Heated Seat Kits for 03Tiburon ? *Updated*

I currently have leather bucket seats in my 03' GS-R that do not have the heated seats function
installed...or so I think. These cars are advertised with heated seats. I see we can buy the dash button for them, I was wondering what it would take to make the whole thing work?

Any ideas, thanks in advance.

(I started this thread yesterday and accidently hit the tab-enter which posted this message early and of course since this forum is not real time, I had to wait for it to show up).

if it has heat seats installed you will see an unused plug underneath the seats

if thats the case, then you need to get a relay, harness and switches

I moved this thread to the appearance forum (basically reserved for any modifications that don't relate to performance or audio) since this doesn't exactly relate to technical problems.

Here is the do-it-yourself for the Heated Seats modification...it should answer any questions or concerns you may have. If not, keep asking in this thread that you made.

During my search to find the DIY thread, I saw threads that linked to ebay auctions for heated seat kits. So, try there, if nowhere else.

Nobody adressed the question: how to use the OEM installed heated seats?? Everyone talks about how to put the pads in etc. But what if your seats have the plug under them? Does this mean they have the pads in the seats too, and if so why the hell didn'y hyundai put the switches for them!?? How do you connect the plug under the seat, so they actually work and where do you put the OEM switches anyway??

i guess i cant do this on my 05 since i have the red inserts? if anyone has let me know, thanks
You should be able to put them in. There is a company online that sells them and makes them for many auto manufacturers and they claim you can use them on cloth seats. Here is the link to their site:

There are others out there too, but thought this may answer your question. I purchased my kit from dreamka4u and will be installing them after Christmas.
