I just buy my heated seat switches for my project (Big thanks to Lexus2000)
The project is to put these switches on my Toyota Matrix XRS 2005
Winter Mode picture
These switches will give me the OEM look I was looking for!
The switches will comes with connectors and some wires...I cant ask better!
Now, when I will receive my switches and my universal heater seat kit, I will have alot of fun installing all that together! (Heaters, Swtiches, OEM Swtiches, Wiring ...)
I plan of keeping the Low-OFF-High switches that comes with the universal kit and add it to the Lexus switches.
The Lexus switch looks like a ON/OFF switch only,so it would be great to have the universal switches installed and hidden under the seats. (If the HIGH setting is too hot, at least it's not too difficult to set it to the LOW setting) HIGH in the winter, LOW the rest of the year.
I need to figure all the wiring things.
I'm not pretty good with the wiring stuff but I will take my time and do it right the first time!
I think if I could have the heated seat switch wiring of the Lexus ES300 1996-2002, it would probably help me for the installation!
This forum is awesome by the way. Alot of quick views and people trying to help me to find stuff!

Any chance you know the specific year of those switch? You've just listed the generation but the switch as far as I can tell changed a few times. Or maybe list the wire colors, I see possibly two blue, one white/black, one black, and one green? Does one of the blue happen to have a stripped color?
Disregard last post. I was thrown off by the amount of prongs on the back of the switch.
The switches are extremely simple, as you said it only has a high setting. Solid blue wire going to both switches is power, white/black wire is always ground, then for the switch with a black connector to the switch the blue and yellow wire is power leading to the seat heater, the switch with the blue connector has black as power to the seat heater.
While your project doesn't exactly fit on this forum, i'd like to see how it turns out.
There is a back light bulb in the switches for sure I was looking at them before I shipped them off. I can't remember what year of ES I got them from though, they were for a heated seat project on a Celica but it turned out the switches would not fit into the panel knock-outs.
We used rocker type switches from a different Lexus. The back light is easy just tap into any bulb that illuminates the instrument panel or shifter or whatever, 1 wire.
