does the Scion tC come with standard seat heaters, too? Or are they optional? If they're standard then that will about seal the deal for me! No kidding! There'll be no arguing with the wife over whether we buy the 2005 Kia Sportage or the 2005 Scion tC. The Scion tC will win hands down. No, seriously, does the tC come with seat heaters for both front seats? Ya gotta be kiddin' me!

Heated seats are not standard and they aren't an option. They are, however, available aftermarket if you have leather installed. I installed the leather only. I believe Genee had the bun warmers installed.
I had an aftermarket remote starter installed on my last vehicle and the electrical was never the same since. I'm avoiding having anyone monkey with the wiring in my Tc.

Sephia lover - I had the bun warmers installed when I had the leather done. While they have the seats apart it was not much to have the pads installed. If you do them as a solo item, they are kinda spendy. They are QUITE addictive. Since the first set, they have become a must with rear seat heaters rapidly catching up. I can't get as excited about the heated wheel in my daughter's Bimmer. I think they just tapped into the wrong circuit on the fuse block rather than a separate ACC tap. I don't think they messed with any of the wiring but I will be finding out tomorrow (Monday 8Nov) when they get it back to turn off the high beam indicator.
#216 of 599 Turning off warning lights

My daughters tC had the Maintenance required light come on at 5,000 miles. Does anyone know how to reset this? Also, the low air pressure in the tires warning light works great.

Press the tripometer button down and hold while turning the ignition switch to the on position. After about 2 seconds, the maintainance light will clear

Or you can get the oil changed. It's probably due to get the original oil out by now.
#219 of 599 How big can we go?

I've heard the largest wheels we can put on our TC's are 19x8. Is this true?
#220 of 599 RE: Side airbags and auto-dimming mirror
Nov 08, 2004 (5:12 pm)
Just received word from Scion about this combination. Once it was OK ... now it is NOT .. it appears that it will be fine sometime in the future. Here is their response:
If you have already had both accessories installed the dealer should be able to implement the new wiring harness so that the options do work. Contact them ASAP.
So, it would appear that the bags MIGHT NOT work just now but there is a wiring modification AVAILABLE that will make things function correctly. My next question is, "Why don't they just put the new wiring harness on any rig that orders the combination of side airbags and auto-dimming mirror?"
#221 of 599 Clearing Maint light
Nov 09, 2004 (7:58 am)
I changed the oil at 1,000 and again at 4,000. Just didn't know how to clear the light.

I just hit 3K, and will be going in for the first oil change soon. Wonder if the dealer will reset it (that is, restart the counter), even though it isn't on?
