My original plan was to ground to a bolt inside the steering wheel to prevent having to run another wire through the clockspring. But after testing the bolts for a good ground, none was giving me continuity. So I had to find another blank slot in the connector and the corresponding pin on the other side. the very top right pin in the steering wheel corresponds to the very top left pin on the backside as per the pic.

Have a 2023 ORP with the heated steering wheel. It is the most overrated pos feature Iíve seen yet. The car spends most of its time in Montana and I doubt it will be used at all.

Speak for yourself. I freaking love my heated seats and steering wheel. It gets below 50F and they go on.

You go on being a real man!

Heated seats are a different story. Did the heated seat mod on the 2014 SR5 and the 2023 ORP came with them. Both work great.

The heated steering wheel really has no effect. The heat is a big ho hum and it’s not located where one would typically hold the steering wheel. Both my wife and I share this view, so I am speaking for myself and my wife. Hope you get that wheel back together and everything works.

I'm not the OP. My 2023 ORP came with heated steering, and I love it. It heats up quickly and puts out a perfect amount of heat on the perforated pleather portion of the steering wheel (roughly 2-5 and 7-10 o'clock on the wheel - right where my hands go). Super glad to have the feature, and will seek it out on all future purchases.

Cut out a groove so there is no bump under the wrap. Wire sits in there perfectly flush with the steering wheel.

Bought some high temp cloth tape to hold down the heating pad. I don't think it's necessary but I thought it would be better and safer than just regular tape.

And here it is all wrapped up nice and tight. Still waiting for the aftermarket wrap...

Just another angle of how I ran the wires. They are tucked in the normal grooves and a couple grooves I had to carve out. I wanted a flush finish so there would be no bumps under the wrap.

Bought this switch which is from a BMW but for some reason it does not seem to work. Power goes through but not enough. It doesn't seem to heat up the pads. On top of that it is momentary. I thought it was a maintained switch. Too bad as it would've looked somewhat OEM.

So I ended up using the switch it came with. Worked in the location I wanted but not quite the look I was hoping for. Did a mock wiring setup with an extra battery and everything worked. I put the switch to the side of the steering wheel as shown. It is in perfect reach of my fingers. I don't even need to take my hand off the steering wheel to turn it on and off.

Subbed. I saw that heating kit on Amazon/eBay and started the thought process on how to install. This is a huge help.
Looking forward to the finished product.

Could you have used the BMW switch with a relay instead?
