If your seats are dried out, heating them won't do anything but make them crack in time.
Still believe it's temperature, not moisture, that softens the leather. Steam is better, because it slightly penetrates as opposed to hot air, which touches just the surface. If it was moisture that did the trick, it'd be enough just to spray the leather (steam iron jets really small amount) & wait.

As to dried & cracked leather - agreed.

I'm searching 'colourlock' manufacturer's page for some help on that case.
