Firstly, I am very thank you for your DIY Heated Seat Posts. You have done a great write up to share with other buddies that you have got in your brilliant brain.Secondly, I would like to ask a few confusing question that I have at the moment. I have a headache with them during this week, coz I can not figure it out which wires are ground, hot, temperature, heating on. I have purchased aftermaket heating element on this website: http://www.sportsimportsltd.com/heatelcarsea.html . I thought that the wirring harness would be match to OEM BMW Wires in order, however the wiring I have received are a bit complicated. I will take some photoes to show you and please take your time to check them out which wire I should connect to OEM BMW Wirre. If it is possible please send me your drawing diagram wirring harness reply on my stuffs. I understand how to run wires from fuse box to console centre and from console centre to Plug X279 and Plug X275 so far.
On the other hand, I do not know how and where I connect the wire from heating elemet to, moreover which wire should be connected to the seat or Plug X***, because I can not buy any secondhand heated seats anywhere even I have tried to buy second hand OEM heating elements. could you please please please draw a picture or some arrows to run those wires. I will be very very appreciated.
