2004 King Ranch Seats in a 2000 F350 - Wiring Help Needed

Does anyone know how to wire 2004 King Ranch seats into a 2000 F350 Lariat? Is there anything I need to worry about to do a bench test and figure out the firing myself?

Do you have any wires under your seat now? Were your previous seats powered?

The driver's side has a powered seat stock. The passenger seat is manual.

You should be able to replace the seat with the newer one and connect. If the plugs are different its just a three wire (power/ ground/ and a smaller gauge wire which I believe is to sense wether you have your seat belt plugged in or not). Since you don't have a passenger seat hook ups, you might be able to just run some jumper wires from the driver side connection power and ground since it is already fused from the battery.

Thanks for the quick help 350factor! The part I can't wrap my head around is where to plug the jumper wires from my factory plug into the new seat harness. This thing has a bunch of wires.

Take a picture of the underside of the newer seats. Are the connectors still there? Have the connectors been clipped off? Take a picture, we can find out what wire controls what motor and then ultimately figure out what wires connects to the truck itself. Also does your newer powered seat have anything extra besides tilt, forward/back, up/down. Like heated seats?

Ive done this to my 2000 f250. Its cake. 350factor is right it is only 3 wires that you need to worry about. I am not by my truck right now but when I am I will look for you. It is SOOOOO easy so don't stress it little buddy. Just tap into your drivers wires, run it under the carpet and you'll be good to go. Ill look at the wires on my truck and tell you the exact color. I don't get on the forum that often though so If you want a fast reply text me. 801-682-0201
