Seat heater electrical install question

I just bought a heated seat kit from RN and have a question. The install manual states to connect one red wire directly to the positive battery terminal and the other (Orange) wire behind the battery. Both wires have a fuse to it before it reaches the wire harness. A third wire (black) is ground which I get, but not sure about the term behind. So what do I attach the Orange wire To?

Red wire has #10 fuse and is to be connected directly to positive battery terminal
Orange wire has #5 fuse behind???
Seats each have a switch that is off/low/high

Switched 12volt, so that the heaters are not switched on with the ign off, switched voltage will be white wires on the loom.

Does the kit have a wiring harness? Is there a relay? I'm assuming there is a relay:



Battery Power to 87
Lead to Heating element 30
IGN (behind wire??) to 86
Ground on 85

if that doesn't help, snap a pic of the harness and post it up.

So any white wire in the fuse panel splice it to that?

Pretty much any wire that gets power when you switch the ignition on. It will only draw enough current to trigger the relay. It would be no different than finding the white wire bundle behind the dash.

This is how I did it, I used a volt meter and found that two of the four terminals in my relay panel in one relay plug that was left unused, were 12v with the ignition on. So I put spade connectors on the ends and plugged my seat heaters in there. Not sure if all D90s have this unused relay spot.

Finally installed the heated seats...
But the red LED light stays on whether both of the switches are in off, on 1, and on 2 positions
the light does go out when the ignition is off and the seats heat up nicely.
should the LED always stay on?
