    FWIW its possible that the floor harness in the non-heated seat US configs might have all the wiring for factory heated seats. The controls seem integrated with dual-zone climate that all the 2021 V6 have. Someone with better Toyota part diagram fu could probably figure this out. Heating elements + climate control panel with seat heater controls and done?

    I want to do this,but hook it up to a raspberry pi for monitoring temp. If it's cold out, kick them on automatically.

    How about an Arduino relay, might be simpler than a Pi? I thought about doing that but it seemed overkill, although getting a delay and temp conditional activation might be a worthy quick project.

    That is a good question above, maybe with the 2021 dual climate there is something in the wire harness to tap into.

    Did I miss it in the thread or did you have a link to where you found the seat heater switches? Looks really clean and something I hope to tackle in the future.

    Ok, thanks! I failed to see they were part of the larger kit.

    Looks Great! I just picked up this kit and will be installing it very soon. Did you wire your switches in a specific way to dim illumination with the other switches with the lights on? I've seen other after market switches are way brighter than the stock switches, but it appears to be uniform in your night picture. Thanks!

    Wired the seat heater switch so that it dims with factory switches. Tied into the dash light wiring for the cargo switch

    Thanks! So the illumination wire from the heated seat switch tapped to the illumination wire of cargo switch (or another OEM switch). Did you do anything special with the ground wire? or just grounded to the body?

    How are the kits from wukexue2010 seller holding up? Switches still good? Wires not burning? Trying to find OEM looking kit that I won't have to redo in short order, which would suck.

    Also to confirm - the LO/HI settings activate both heaters (butt & back) and adjust heat power, correct? Apparently there are kits where the switch basically controls two modes: back only, or butt+back.
