Seat heater switches
#1

Anyone know how the seat heaters are wired? I can't see the lights on the switch to know the setting unless it is dark. I haven't used the heaters a great deal but suspect the only real setting is on and off. Was thinking of replacing the switch with a simple lighted toggle and just implementing one of the settings if that worked with the system. Would like to know how the switch is wired before I go to the trouble of taking off the windshield and dash cowling. TIA! (2019 Venice).

I have the same problem seeing the lights on the switch.   I have my 2018 VV apart right now, so took a picture of the backside of the switch.  A lot of wires come out of the switch, but I would only need 1, or 2 positions, since even on low I find mine gets too hot.  If you figure it out, please post your method of wiring.
 I found what appears to be the manufacturer: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33009236...88ae2a78ac

J PatrickI can't get the picture of the switch to post.  It is very accessible once the cowling and windshield are removed.  There is a plug on the switch with 6 wires to it.

I could see the picture you posted. With 6 wires, probably would have to apply the multimeter and see which wires have voltage as the switch is cycled. I would hope I could isolate a single pair to hook to a toggle switch. Not sure changing the switch is enough motivation by itself to do the disassembly!
