OEM heated seat switch MOD?

Alright. I have a SVT and I have some self installed switches in my console.
The red is my amp on/off and the CF one is. To turn on my ambient lighting.


I like the switches how they are. But for a future change that I may do someday I would like to know if I could use the heated seat switches to accomplish the same task?

Yes, the seat switches would do the same as those, all they do is turn on/off something. Why do you need to turn your amp off?

I think it was a safety thing. For whatever reason I you needed to cut the power to it you could. I didn't install the system I just put switches in a different location. If the car is gonna sit for a couple days I usually just cut the power to the amp as a "just in case" it decides to drain the battery. And the ambient lighting on/off is so that you don't have to go to the 12V power point.

I dunno, it's just more of a OEM look that I might go to sown the road.

So could the little LED still work? How would I go about wiring this up?

Here is the seat heater button wiring diagram:



You would need seat heater buttons and pigtails
