WHY they are just temp sensitive resistors to keep seats from over heating ive had 4 chevs with heated seats and they'll scald your ass off if theres no resistance won't the system run at 1 2 3 4 5 should just tell HCU Fire it up?

Why? Because the system will not work without them. You can add resistance in series with them and raise the operating temperature if that's what you are looking for. Probably about 25K ohms on each circuit would do it. Make it think it is colder than it actually is.

If the seat is at Ultimate in Toronto right now, why don't you ask them if you can remove the items they put in the seat in order for the heat to work? Was the seat made for your bike, or bikes that had heated seats and grips (2006 to 2010 in your case) or was it made for aftermarket heat? They might be able to modify the wiring for that if you wish. Talk to them.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
