sounds like a big job for a diy project

I had a driver side heated seat installed in my wife's '99 Accord by a local outfit that specializes in car upholstery. Can't recall exactly, but I think it was about $250. Worked fine last winter, she loves it, but recently the forward and back power seat switch (but not the tilt and up-down switches) became inoperative. The Honda dealer who did the repair said it was due to a problem with the seat track, which makes no sense to me. Can't say if the after-market heated seat had any bearing on the problem, but thought I mention it FYI.

A journalist from a wire service is looking for comments about heated seats - do you really love them, or really hate them, or really hate having to pay for them in an option package? Please send your thoughts and daytime contact info to jfallonedmunds.com by Tuesday, November 12 at 2pm Eastern.
#11 of 44 heated seats and side airbags

Now I don't know this for certain and I don't know if this is only for Toyota's, but I was told that aftermarket heated seats can not be added to cars with Side airbags. They told me this is because the seat heaters would interfere with the sensors in the seat for the side airbags.
Just an FYI.

I found this link for a heated car seat cushion, with a lumbar back support:
Just plug it into the cigarette lighter, and stay warm during cold winter months. Built-in climate control maintains a comfortable temperature. Only $39.99 ($34.99 web price) + shipping.
#13 of 44 car seat for back support in a Civic?

Has anyone found a sturdy car seat with decent back support? I drive wayyy too many miles in a Civic, and it's becoming harder every day to force myself into the driver's seat! I don't care about heat - just a prop...
