Default Wiring loom potential add on help

I took off my dash panel to see if there were any more looms. I currently only have 1 button in the middle and that's for cruise. When the facia was off there were 2 looms to the left of the cruise button and one to the right all with some wrapping on. Does anyone know what these looms are?? My car already has electric memory seats but not heated thanks

The options were iirc for cruise, one for each seat heater and the rear blind.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but it's been a while since I played.

What do you mean by colour loom? I have cruise already. If they are heated seats, is it just a case of buying the switch and plugging in?

If you unwrap the foam, the plug on the end will be coloured, either green blue or black.

That denotes what switch will fit on the end

I will check. The cruise is a dark grey, what will the other colours represent?

OK one on far left is black and it looks the same as the one on the far right. The other one is smaller and is green. ??

Looks like you've got heated seat looms and also electric rear blind loom

Great, thanks. I'm no mechanic, can I just buy the heated seat buttons and plug them in? That sounds too easy? My car seats are electric and full leather so are they just needing a couple of switches?

Would depend on if you have the heated elements, I have seen a car recently that had heated seats fitted but not the switches, I only tried them myself as they were electric memory seats.
