I'm In the process of fitting heated seats In my mk4 wav. I can get the blowers to work with my new panel. Did you have trouble with this also?

Thanks

I did !!!

There is a Live feed needed extra to those as provided before.
Had to splice in an Ign switched feed, if I remember rightly ?
I discussed it somewhere ...

I'll try to find it 🤔

Here it is (at least in part)

Caddy Mk4 2018

- 3C8 907 336AE - Heated seats and 4 Buttons inc. Heated Rear Screen and Aux. Heater.
- 3C8 907 336AB - Basic Climatic

Both work, but in my case only after some extra wiring.
My Caddy has an extra Black wire that feeds a relay to switch on power to the fan control.
I added an IGN-Switched Live and spliced to the black wire.
I also added a diode in the black wire, and another in the extra feed, to prevent any back feeds if an original panel were ever to be refitted !

Seems to be working a treat.
Thanks for all the help and info from this thread and elsewhere.

Thank you very much. Still waiting to be approved for forum rights. I tried this the weekend. I spliced into the feed for my pioneer head unit which is powered via am ign live but still had no joy.

I used a strand of 1.5mm twin & earth. So that could have had something to do with it. The black cable your splicing into is in 20 pin plug in slot 2 isn't it?

Thanks

I'll have to try again at some point, getting really frustrated with it now.

Do you happen to remeber what amp/size cable you used? Did you use a scotchlok connector or?

I soldered the new wire to the Black wire.
I also added a diode in the Black wire to prevent back feeding into the panel (should not be needed unless reverting to original panel) and have a similar diode to prevent flow from the panel to the fuse box, also probably not necessary !

Don't need much of a guage as only to throw the relay. I overdid it and used about 10A if I remember (which I don't really).
