Hi folks. I was wondering if anyone with xantia heated seats could take a photo of the heated seat switch connector for me?

Cheers, Dom.

Shame. I've definately got one connector like that under there, but not two. I'll have to have a better root around under there.

At least I know what I'm looking for.

Thanks!

One of the connectors is often well tucked away Dom and often totally wrapped up in grey foam.

Sorry for dragging up an old post. I found a wire that looks suspiciously like that one, with another one closely attached that's tucked right forward out of the way for some reason. However the one that's accessible doesn't reach very far towards the gear stick, so I was wondering where exactly do the heated seat SWITCH connectors attach? Towards the front/dashboard or towards the back/gear stick end of the little cubby hole?

It's looking like the wiring is there for them, which is nice!

Cheers.

edited a typo!

Those connectors (in the photo above) plug straight on to the back of the switches, which replace the coin holders (which are normally) just forward of the gear lever.

Thanks for that - are the switches on the gear stick or the dashboard end of the coin holder? I'm useless at explaining myself!

Cheers, Dom.

The switches are rotary 3 position switches just forward from the gear lever before the coin tray. At least they are on auto.

If that is the case it doesn't look like the plugs I've found will reach, so they may not be the right ones? Who knows.. Anyway I'm on the look out for some black heated leather for a hatchback if anyone knows of any?

Cheers, Dom :D
