Recaro Leather Heated Seat Not Working.
Posted 19 February 2013 - 11:29 AM
I need some help with heated seats. I put the recaro leather seats in which are heated and put the switchs in and the switches turn on and red when u turn dim on but seats don't heat?.
Is there a fuse or a relay that ford haven't put in that I have to put in for it to work?

ok, i think i found out how to install the reacro leather seats.
You need the heated seats, the switches, the switch panel and a 2007 fuse box.
The heated seats for me are the Recaro leathers install them as you would normally, and reattach the seat loom to the seat. (remeber to disconnect the battery and wait about 10 mins and that remove and install your new seats)
Once you have done that buy the switch panel which has spaces for the heated seat switches. I got it from a st-3 carbon effect.
Install the panel with the switches, the wires to the switches are behind the panel, easy to find. They are black with red clip. ( Do not connect the cables which are one solid colour to the switches like blue and grey, they are forairbag and esp. )
Once you have the seats in and the switches plug in and in place. with the car still disconnected from the battery. You have to reinstall the new fuse box.
The fuse box has to have a fuse 86 . If there is no fuse at 86 then you need to replace your fuse box like me.
If you do have a fuse 86 20amp fuse then easy your seats should be working. If you have pins there but no fuse just put a 20 amp fuse in.
But for me it was harder. I had to remove glove box, to get better access to the old fuse box.
Once you swap over the fuse box for one which has fuse 86.
And remeber if you do change the fuse box the whole layout changes as a service bullet for from called 43 2009.
After all this the heated seats worked.
