"Electronically-heated seats: The front seats are electrically heated and thermostatically controlled. Automatic engagement begins at 50F (+10C) and ends at 95F (+35C). Use the console-mounted switches to deactivate the heating, if desired." Not sure if it gets cold enough where you are for them to ever activate!
Thanks and good luck on your project!

I dug into the seats and the elements are broken in multiple places from age and mileage. I was tempted to replace them but then my priorities changed.

Watch this space for a rebuilt 13c swap and trans service as soon as my ipd shipment arrives
