Ok all you helpful people so I have scoured the internets and have not seen anything about adding a heated steering wheel to the 'nox. I was able to add one to my 2018 Silverado and there are many videos out there for other GM models but not for the Equinox. Is it as simple as buying a steering wheel with the heat option, a clock spring and plugging it all in; is there a connector under the dash already to plug into? Has anyone done the mod yet? Please help!! Thanks

Having the proper harness in the column, fuse and relay wiring in the fuse box and the BCM being programmed for a heated wheel are biggest and hardest concerns.

Check out this thread from the Buick forum on installing a heated steering wheel.
It might help.

Have you done that? I am thinking about adding it onto my 2013 Equinox. No heated steering wheel option that year yet and I think it would be much more difficult, close to impossible.

No factory heated steering wheel in the 2014 LTZ either.
I live in southern AZ so heated anything is low on the must do list.

Did you read the link in post #3 for the Buick Eccore?
The is also a Youtube video for an install on a Chev Silverado, do a search.
If you want it bad enough there is some info out there.

I did. The problem though is that Encore or Silverado have heated steering wheel as option that year. So they just added an available option themselves. Equinox didn't even offer it as an option that year. It will require a lot more work probably. May be able to get their wheel and clock spring or may not...

I know this threat is pretty dead, but since OP never got an answer on if this will work for a 2020, and I'm ordering the parts to do it to my wife's 2020 I'll throw out what I've found.

BCM doesn't control the Steering Wheel Heating Module, it's in the steering wheel and is using a switch to ground to energize the circuit.

From the fuse block under the hood, fuse F50 10A, a Purple/Black wire comes out of pin 3 in the X1 connector → X101 Body Harness to Forward lamp harness connector pin 12 (behind front bumper cover below passenger headlight) → X202 Instrument Panel Harness to Body Harness pin 66 (passenger side kick panel) → X85 Steering wheel air bag coil X1 connector pin 21 (on the steering column) → X85 Steering wheel air bag coil X2 connector pin 9 (on the steering wheel) this wire could be Purple/Black or change to Orange at this point, manual shows both for some reason? → K32 Steering Wheel Heating Control Module pin 3.

I'm going to order a heated wheel and when it comes I'll dissemble and see if this wire exists in the harness, if not I'll just run my own and pin out the connectors.
