    Its not hard to wire them up yourself. I've added heated seats to cars before with aftermarket kits. Its just two wires for power and the switch to control them.


    Custom Mirage products: Cruise control kit, Glove box light, MAF sensor housing, Rear sway bar, Upper grill block

    Current project: DIY Nitrous oxide setup for ~$100

    Looked under the seat of a 2019 SE hatchback. Heated seat wiring chilling there waiting for something to plug in. So I guess the ES model has a different body harness...
    -Karl B. Had a 2019 Mirage ES 5 speed, swapped it for a 2019 Outlander Sport ES 5 speed. Now have a 2019 Mirage SE CVT as well.

    So I popped the console thing off today to see if maybe the connector was there and no dice on that either. Would have to 100% custom wire it to use the factory stuff. Oddly enough the fuse box has the spot for the relay ready to go and the fuse already installed.

    The fuse box would be the same one on all trim levels, hence the space for the relay. But for Mits to have different wiring harnesses in the trim levels NOW as evidenced by Dodge not having the wiring VS. all trim levels of older Mirages having all the wiring for options (as far as we know) smacks of EXTREME cheapness, stupidity, or both. I did cost performance at one time and I'd really be surprised Mits is saving anything what with having 2 harnesses to source and stock, have the assembly line rigged for two harnesses, require service manuals to reflect 2 harnesses and this is only for heated seats for crying out loud! Multiply that by all the changes among the trim levels and it can total some serious coin.
    Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
    Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!
    Shelby AKA "Cute", 2017 ES 5MT, A/C.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
    We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

    They probably cut out the unused wiring because some forum figured out they could take advantage of it without paying Mitsubishi haha. Who's stupid then?
