Here's what I'd buy and swap both ends... You can lightly crimp the pins with a pair of pliers and solder them.

I had meant that you cut off the mating connector (coming out of the seat) and then solder splice the wires together w/heatshrink etc. I would leave enough wire on the connector you cut off, coming out of the seat, to be able to splice it back on if a mating connector was found at a later date. It's not the best option but.......

Maybe someone out here has customized their seat and opted to not keep the heating option and may have the short cable for sale at a reasonable cost.

Hope you can find a good way of putting yourself back on the hot seat.

Edit: I was typing and missed Duane's posting an excellent way of fixing the problem.

I just took a look at my seat there's enough access to get to the wires for soldering. Or, like Steve suggests, an easier option would be to just eliminate the connector and solder/heat shrink the wires. You can connect/disconnect from either end of the cable.
