cadillac heat-cool seats in '33 chevy

I am installing '06 cadillac dts heat-cool seats in '33 chevy. I got the seat motions wired and they work fine. I need advice on wiring the door heat-cool switches to the individual seat. On my family '03 cadillac deville, each seat heat coil has a 10a fuse, each door module is fused with 10a. The door module has power windows, door latch and heat-cool switch. I am only using the heat-cool switch. Can I wire direct to seat without door module or what do I have to do?

Its not likely that the seats can function without the control module given the adjustable levels of heat output.
I would check out the possibility that a switch could be wired to select between the seat pad and the seat back elements connected in series for the low heat setting and for the high heat setting connecting them in parallel.
Make sure the pad and the back elements are 12 volt and the switch has the capacity for the load.
Experiment with that.
