The adjustable and switchcontrolled seat heating was introduced on earlier models (my 88B had it). Converting thermostat controlled to adjutable is rather difficult, you need a switch, a sensor to put in the seat and some wiring. The thermostat is located in the seat, if you feel over the seat you should be able to sense it. The easiest thing for you to do is to put an extra switch in one of the spare holes in the panel, and cut the wires under the seat and route them through the switch, use rater thick wire, the current is about 5 Ampere. If you donĄt want the switch in the panel i think there is an opening for an extra switch in the centre console too, it should be vacant if you donĄt have an electric sunroof. /Mats On Tue, 24 Jul 2001 02:05:52 GMT, Warren Pattinson <yalandanopsamond.com> wrote: >My '92 900i has what appears to be thermostatically controlled seat heating - with no visible means >of switching it off.
