I have an '04 ES330. Like Lexusk8 mentioned, I have a high/low switch. The reason I'm chimming in is because I wish high was hotter than it is. I was wondering whether it was adjustable as well.

speaking of heated seets

has any one ever converted non heated seets to heated seets. i was pondering doing it but i have never done apulstry work and am kind of afraid to take apart my seets

they sell elements on ebay that could be used

You can adapt a unit but it will need a lot of the OEM parts to get the factory installed look. You can also pull a heating element out of a wrecked car that has simular dimensions and "shade-tree engineer" a working unit. It would be better if you could find the same model as yous to become a donor.

I pulled a heating unit out of a 760 Volvo and installed it in a F150. The Volvo was an On/off unit that had a 3 wire connection: ground, power, and overheat sensor. I only used the ground and hot leads and had them wired to a toggle switch. The unit lasted about 3 years before the element burnt out. It was fun while it lasted...

My heated seats in my 97 are not hot at all. I can just notice them getting warm but that's it. 2 years ago before the factory warranty went up, I had the heating elements replaced but the seats don't get hot enough to notice I have Heated Seats. Is this common with all 97-99 models or does my car just have issues.

comon with all older lexus

changing the battery wires can help it did for me

but i also ran new wires to the heaters with a new relay to the oem switches

now it works better than ever but i also have hid's which keep my power consumption down leaving ample amounts left over for the seats

Under driver seat there is lot's of wiring for Power seat,heated seat etc.
