I'd like the members here with real experience of installing some heated seat covers in a Pilot.
I have an 08SE, and a 15LX. Neither have heated seats.

Anyone have a link to a good brand of heated seat cover they'd recommend?

TIA

I bought a heated seat kit similar to the one you have pictured and installed it in my 2017 Tacoma. I approached it a bit differently however. Since this was a truck and was going to see some dirt and my German Shepherd I wanted to install some seat covers. I put the kit under the aftermarket covers and that works quite well.

Which idiots are those? I was looking at this and was going to ask my wife tonight.

It says plug and play. I can do some simple programming with instructions if needed.
What else?

Do to some iffy reviews,
I went ahead and ordered some seat covers with heaters in them- requires no taking the seat apart.
These were low $$ enough, that I won't mind if they don;t work well. It was an Ebay thing, - no reviews.


I figure for this price, for 2 seats, if it doesn't work, at least I didn't take my seats apart, etc. I can live with that. Possibly even send it back.

it was the manufacture they claimed it was their mistake so they overnighted another brain with the correct firmware. Easy install no wire cutting it all plugs into the existing system in the pilot. nothing really just follow the instructions you will have a harder time removing panels than actually installing this thing.

Thanks,
I hope if and when I get one it's just plug and play only. No hassle.

* Update:

I bought and installed these ones in the Ebay ad.

They work Well! They get warm/hot too! Even on Low, they have a low/high switch- even on low, they are very warm! For ~$35 shipped- well work it.

I've also got an OEM- uses the same key FOB remote starter ordered and on the way!
