Did you torque the steering wheel bolt to a certain setting or just make it tight? Did you use any sort of Loctite on the bolt?Well, upon further experimenting, the most heat is centered around the grips at 10 and 2, but the outermost circumference of the entire wheel is heated also, in a strip about an inch or so wide. I suspect there is a couple of wider wrap around areas in the 10 and 2 that increases the heat there.
If I remember, the original bolt had some blue loctite still on it. I didn't torque to a spec, just as tight as it came off, which was pretty damn tight.Did you torque the steering wheel bolt to a certain setting or just make it tight? Did you use any sort of Loctite on the bolt?
The button is circled here.So I’ve read through this whole post and I’m wondering 2 things... how do you turn the heated wheel on? I don’t see a separate button etc so does it come on with the seats? Also i have a 2018 Chev Z71 with black interior (wheel). What parts would i need? Seeing all the different options and part numbers everyone listed is quit confusing. Thanks.
yeah from what i've seen there is a mid-year switch where they went to a 3 post airbag from a 2 post. Mine is a 2 post since it's a 2016(May build) and the 2017 GMC Denali wheel has a model that works for mine. Then i just need the clock spring for it as well. From what i've read elsewhere and also on here, i need to get the correct wheel and clockspring and once i do all i need to do is retrofit the existing clock spring plug for the heat option and run wires to the fuse block and hook it up. I am looking into possibly getting the plug and pins from the newer truck harness so that it looks stock and then getting the correct wire colors and even try and plug it into the correct open position on the fuse block. It'll look stock once i'm done with it.
