Cool Heated/Cooled seat upgrade
I'm also in the process of adding heated/cooled seats to my 2013 2500 6.7 CC LB 4x4 ST. I've already upgraded the radio to the 8.4NAV (was 5.0), added the sales code for the backup camera. I have the heated leather steering wheel but still need to add the sales code (and clock spring) for that, I'll try for the heated/cooled seat sale code as well. Hoping somebody else out there has already done this upgrade by now and has all the answers ;-)

Your main problem will probably be having the codes added if your truck is an ST. I bought a scan tool from Auto Enginuity and have been able to add some of my own sales codes. I am in the process of getting my heated wheel and clockspring and I am going to try to get my seats work. I'm going to try to duplicate what 00/RT has done. I am hoping with some guidence from him I can get it done. Look for his thread in the 4th Gen DIY about enabling sales codes without the dealer. It's very informative but you will need to buy the scan tool to try to duplicate what he has done.

I'm not sure if this will help or not, I recently completed a leather swap from a long horn to an SLT, everything was simply plug and play. Both the heated and cooled seats work, just the LED lights don't show up in the factory panel switches. The memory buttons don't work at all.

I tried adding the sales codes to my truck, the dealership I had dealt with needed the vin of the donor truck, even with that they said after that they couldn't change or update because of the TIPM in my truck. It didn't have everything necessary to activate the sales codes in my BCM.

Good luck with your attempt to get the seats working fully.

I wish the 2013 and up trucks were the same but they are not. They require a sales code to work plus our trucks are the ST so unless you have the regular cab you won't have most of the required wiring.

Cool
Right now I'm just trying to find out what I need to get 12V to the power seats so they can function. Tough for my wife to reach the pedals if I can't move the seat The seat cool & heat can come later.

SLT might only have the wiring for them, but they work through seat swaps.

You say they are working, how do you activate the heated/cooled function?

Yes, they function. I received the factory heat/cooled switches for the dash bezel when I picked up the seats. The seats turn on as designed but the LED light in the switch doesn't. Once I install the heated steering wheel, that will also function but without the LED.

I'm still looking for the wiring harness for the rear heated seats but it's already -20C average and I don't have a garage to park in and keep warm while I'm taking the rear corners off to look behind the plastic, or in the storage space under the seats.
