I noticed the telluride has a feature where it turns on the heated seats when it’s below a certain temperature outside. Any idea if this is on the Optimas? From what I can find, I don’t think so. But it would be nice for when you remote start the heated seats come on as well.

Don't believe any option yfor temp dependant heated seats, but they can be wired into the remote start.
Only problem I see is that the heated seats would turn on all the time unless a thermostat was installed in line.

The real trick is if you can wire the (front) seats with a thermostat so that it can smart-enable heat or cooled.

Is it possible to wire this with the canbus control module from the K5 store?

Can you provide more info on this?

Say I have a remote starter already installed, but it has an aux button on it, can't I program it so that the start button does not start the heated seats, but the aux button does?

I'm assuming I'd need to find a wiring diagram somewhere, can you point me in the right direction?
