07 seats in my 01 F350 XL

Long story short, my 2001 F350 crew cab is a BARE BONES model that came with washout floorboards and bench seats. I got a set of leather lariat seats but they are powered and looking under my seats, I don't see any power hookups. Any ideas or help? I did some basic searching, but didn't see a relevant thread, so pointing me to one could help too.

Thanks

Have you thought of maybe running a new power lead for it? I can't imagine it'd be too hard. At least I hope not...I'm about to be in the same boat this week when I get my king ranch seats.

I had an old Grand Cherokee with power seats and the leather was all cracked and nasty so I pulled some out of a different Jeep the problem ended up being two different connectors. Started looking at it and it was two wires, power and ground, cut the wires and soldered then together worked great. SOOO maybe on the new power seats you just need to ad a power and a ground wire and "ta da" you have power seats.

Dont know if it'll work just an idea.

Yep. That's now the plan. Luckily, the new seats were cut with the connector, so I will still be able to remove them later. That said, here's the connector. Anyone know which is the hot? I assume the black is the ground.

Try hard wiring it directly to a battery, outside of the cab, and see if the seat starts moving

Yes, I could do that with each wire 1 by 1, but I was hoping that someone knew the wiring pattern...

Bump. Anyone have a guide also? Or just unbolt - rebolt?

I have the 2002 wiring diagrams, but can't post attachments yet. Shoot me a PM with your email address, and I'll send you the PDF's.
