    Were you able to hook up the airbag sensors or did you modify that?

    I might have the diagrams where I put them in my 05. Let me look and I'll send them to you. I have a shit load of papers laying around for the 15-16 harness and an 05 harness where I had to tie the doors in and a few more things.

    I finally figured it out for power to gets seats to move I striped the harness back for the seat and elimated the black box and wired power to the switch and figured out what wire did what. Haven't messed with the heat/cooling yet but the move.

    yes i would love to have the diagram. no i didn't hook the air bag up i just installed a resistor. I stripped all the harness down to the wires and figured that I needed to remove the black box and bypass that all together. So I hooked the power to a 9v battery on the seat side switch and started moving the levers and with using my volt meter i figured out what wire does what. I havent messed with the heating and cooling but I will soon I just wanted poower to move the seats front to back and up and down. As of now the seats move back and forth and up and down.

    Here is a pic I snapped showing what I did. I took a 9v battery and hooked it to the pos and neg. power goes directly to the side seat switch and then run the corresponding wires. I have front and back and seat up and down didn't mess with air for lumbar or for the heating and cooling I ordered a couple hot cold switches so when the come I will install it doesn't seem to hard after taking the seat completely apart to see how it works.

    Your definition of hard is very different from mine apparently.

    Ok to get the seats power to work I had to remove the seat black box and wire the seat movement sections to neg. and pos on the harness that goes to the switch and they work perfect the heating and cooling need to go to relays with switches I am still working on them but got power to them and they fit awesome
