So I'm a new is300 owner only had the car for a few months. Well today I installed an aftermarket radio and noticed I have 2 connections not being used next to my traction control button. Ik that where those connections are is for heated seats but I dont have the buttons. Does this mean my car has the heated seat option and I just need the heated seat buttons or what?

What seats do you have? I think if you have the full leather seats/interior (doesn't have suede insert) then you can pop them in & they'll work.

I have the all leather powered seats.
I think they may work... But I reccomend removing a friend's switches and trying them before you buy switches. Make sure you put the 15a fuse in before freaking out like i did because they didn't work lol

Yes that鈥檚 correct.

That was not the case in my car. I have leather/power seats. The wiring is there from the switch to under the seats, but the actual electrical heating element is not in the seat itself. I鈥檇 pop a seat out, look for the heater harness, then go from there. Be careful, the yellow wire is the airbag. Should probably disconnect battery before doing this. You can add heaters if you don鈥檛 have them, but it鈥檚 quite a bit of work.

Your seats must have heated seat option installed originally. The cars are prewired.
