    fitted heated seats and switches but still heating off the ingition ?

    ive fitted vectra heated seats and astra heated seat swtiches and cinnect them all up.


    But there still working off the ingiton ? I.E when u turn the ingition on the seats will heat up iwhtout the switches off ?


    would this be a missing fuse ? ive check the handbook and it says numbers

    2. which is for the fan and heated front seats

    36. heated front seats and cigrette lighter ?


    so would it be a missing fuse or broken fuse ?

    i know number 36 works as it still charges my phone charger and 2. works as the fan kicks in ?



    so what would it be ???


    thanks ?
    Back in an astra and loving it

    Exactly how have you connected the vectra seats to the Astra wiring?
    What colour wire on the seat to what colour Astra wiring?

    You need to wire it as follows

    Don't just plug in the connectors, as the Astra is wired for temperature adjustable seats. The vectra seats don't have any controllers, they are just a basic heated seat

    The wiring in the plugs may not be in the same positions.
    Check if the wiring colours match as per the diagram provided.
    The Astra has extra wiring for the controllers.

    It's only two wires per seat that need connected, & as it's already heating up i'd guess the earths are matched up. The seat elements are probably connected to an ignition feed rather than the switches in the car.
    Just connect the Black/Red wires up on the passengers seat & the Black/Yellow wires on the drivers seat.
    The Brown earth wires should already be connected.
