I'm wanting 2 in my 03 xlt lariat but havent figured that one out yet. I may be wrong so dont quote me but i think there is a control module that may have 2 be mounted in under the seat or somewhere. I honestly dont think it is as simple as pos and neg, ya know? Just my thoughts. Hope this helps.

hey 4ds4me. not tryin to offend u or anything so plz dont take offense on this but i looked at the link u sent and it just says power seats. does this include heated seats also? cuz im no genius but i would think that power and heated seats would take more than pos and neg per side. not sure but im thinkin i may look in my wiring diagram and check this out further. thanks for the link though

Yea an FYI on 2008 seats theres around 60 wires under the driver seat with 2 plugs coming off it.
Under the passenger theres only 1 plug with like 30 wires. A white one was postive and a black one was negative. These 2 wires pwered the whole seat. However the driver side is a diffrent story

Sounds like good old over engineering to me, hard to believe there is that much stuff a seat can do to need that many wires.

The only way to make the seat heaters work is by haveing the control module, they are so finiky you cant even change the grid because of differnt resistance values . As far as the power adjust option just run good heavy wiring with a circuit breaker.
