An Easy-To-Install Solution To Connect Seat Heaters To A GM Power Source

By Ellen Mckoy

Nobody likes getting into a car on a chilly day and sitting down on a seat that feels more like an icicle than a cushion. Which is undoubtedly why seat heaters have become popular as factory-installed equipment and an aftermarket upgrade. Several suppliers offer seat heater systems. For this installation in a 2011 Chevy Suburban, we worked with Check to highlight its easy-to install Expert Accessory for current-model General Motors trucks.

The GM Factory-Style Power Connector provides a fast and clean power source for 12-volt products and connects easily to Check’s seat heater systems. It requires only one tool, involves no additional fuses or soldering, and eliminates searching for a keyed ignition source. Simply crimp, plug in and go!
