They would probably need to flash the ECU in your truck also to enable it.
I'm just guessing that it might possibly work this way because this was basically the same procedure done when I installed the factory remote starter kit.
Let us know if you find anything out. I'm looking into it as well.
I was thinking about scrapping the idea of the kit and buying the heater elements, control module and switch bank. I'm getting my first oil change on Friday. Will have some time to kill so I will get them to look up all parts needed. But I think this route may be more expensive then the kit and switch bank.
The upper and lower heater elements are already $190 per seat (probably $220 CDN) according to dodgeparts.com. Need to find out price of the control module, switch bank. I also want to check price on heated steering wheel.
Will post more info when I have it.
