05 expedition seats into OBS

Can anyone point me in the direction of a wiring diagram for 05 expedition king ranch seats? Would like to get started with the install into my 96 F250. I understand I'll need to run new switches for the heated portion as they originally were in the dash, and that I'll have to bypass the memory function somehow, but there are some pretty big bundles of wire on the driver's seat which I'm unsure of. I attached a pic of the driver's seat harnesses (3 in total).

Thanks!

Glad you got it sorted out

3 wires for each position sensor, and 2 wires for each motor

since you don't have the memory module the position sensors are not in the equation, only the connections to the switches

seat heat would have been controlled from the heater control panel -- EATC
but a push button or toggle would work fine -- just be sure the power cuts off when the key is off

Actually a relay and two position momentary switch would be uber cool -- and would turn off when the power was interrupted
use a loop feedback to keep the relay engaged

In my defense, I was unsupervised

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

Yeah I was surprise that out of 45 wires in the driver's seat I only needed 5 to make it work. These seats aren't heated, which was news to me- I just assumed all king ranch seats were heated- but I'll be adding an aftermarket seat heat kit instead. I've done it a few times now on other cars with good success.

I thought all King Ranch and Lariat seats were heated?

Should see the wires heading up into the seat pad for the heater strips

I did too, but these I'm pretty confident that these aren't. The passenger side only has 4 wires going to it- both for seat belt/restraint stuff. They came out of an expedition vs a truck, not sure if that had something to do with it

Driver seat may be the only one with heat
look for the wires that go up into the seat pad for the heater strips

Pretty handy on those cold mornings

I find it very hard to believe they would only heat one seat....

Regardless- I've got a set of aftermarket seat heaters I'll be installing. You're right they are very nice to have (I live in NH).

Wrapping it up this weekend. Fabbed up new mounts and welded them into the truck for the seats and center console. Installed aftermarket seat heaters as well. I need to think more on how to get the passenger seat to slide forward as it makes the back seat impossible to get into now (I have an extended cab).
