miragesmack Yeah, the pad seller is saying that it won't work. How many connectors to the SVT heater switches? The aftermarket switches have 2, I thought SVT had 3.

This. It's just a simple plug. I'm 95% sure you could reuse the switches for aftermarket pads.

1) Do they wire into a connector/plug I assume? I see the switches for sale at dealers, but never the plug they connect into.

2) Can they be wired without the factory plug, using normal wire connectors and plugs? I can't tell from the pics.

The pad maker says to only use their switches, not sure why yet, it may just be a liability issue. But if I do that, I'll need a new console bezel, plus I am converting the traction control to an OD switch for a future shifter handle mod.
