Anyone have a link to the instructions for coding the VO for enabling heated seats? I did have it but cannot find it anywhere now. I have added $494 to the VO but still cannot get the seats to work (all hardware in place) I am missing a step somewhere

Probs something along the lines of add $494 to VO, fa_write to cas/frm/speg (think its speg instead of frm on minis), then sg_codierien cas/frm/speg/ihka.

What did you need to do to fix that - was a simple nip up to tighten?

So problem child is leaking water somewhere, I think I am just going to get a genuine stat housing and crossover pipe and swap them out as I cannot trace it. Track day booked in at Aintree in a month so best get this sorted! Oh and original wheels have gone off for a refurb, hopefully back next week

Also just been faffing about with NCS Expert to sort the seats. Could code the VO fine, but when writing the IHK module the controls wouldn't activate. Long story short i found doing an ECU reset on the KOMBI ecu from Bimmercode has enabled the heated seats, result! on the hottest day of the year I can have an extra hot arse!! furious

I like those. Makes a change from the standard black or silver.

Think dechrome will definitely help the look. All the bits are readily available. I did mine and very happy.

I found this in someone's notes for adding heated seats: edit actually iis the same as already written on page 14

Add all the hardware, then afterwards add $494 to the VO (CAS and FRM), and then default FRM, CAS, SPEG and IHKA

thanks, will give it a go. Still need to sort the slight water loss, its not been getting much use of late so on a back burner. Also looks like the vacuum pump to head oil seal is weeping a bit....gotta love these leaky engines!!

So full external dechrome kit just ordered from Killallchrome....that wasn't cheap! BUT man maths mean it saved me money on a new set of wheels as I thing the bronze allys will be okay with no chrome on the car!

I have a masters degree in man maths....and an empty wallet

Are you doing the belt line too? It's a little fiddly, but juding by your skillset it will not be a problem smile

Gratuitous I know, but all chrome must go :-


Hope you get the heated seats going before the colder weather.
