Wired The Seats Today
This whole process has been slow because I wanted to use the original connectors. My son helped me find the pigtail sets from fordtech. I got the seats in last month and then got the pigtail sets last week. No problem at the seat, but the big test was figuring out which 30 amp receptacle at the back of the fuse box came from the two 30 amp fuses at the front of the fuse box.
According to the owners manual, #112 is for the driver side, and #114 is for the passenger side. Since I was unable to get the pigtail set for the connector going into this position on the plug at the back of the fusebox ( this six cavity connector was not shown on the ford tech site ), I just used insulated female slide connectors at the end of the 12 vdc wires I led to the seats to plug directly in to the blades in the receptacle at the back of the fusebox. Trial and error with a meter at each end determines which blade leads to each fuse, and what each wire does at the seats. I also had to make two small jumpers from this plug to the existing connector to provide power to the windows, since their wires were on this plug originally. I put a ground wire on each side at the frame under the sill near the seats. All the wiring is out of sight under the carpet. Now I can unplug and remove the seats anytime if necessary.
The leather is great, the power seats work fine, but no seat heat. I know power is there, because I get a momentary flash from the indicator on the seat heat switches, but no heat. Everything else in the truck works fine, too. My primary motivation was for the leather, secondary for the power adjustments, and maybe heat would be nice. I 'll keep trying.
