    so i recently bought a set of seats from a 2015 gt premium to put in my 05. i’ve wondered if anyone knows a good way to make the climate control seats work? i have the wiring diagram and it’s just basic power and ground type thing but what gets me is the FCIM. does anyone know if i absolutely need this to make them function? i was sort of thinking i could just run power with a switch into it into the right wires and make it work but this computer module throws a wrench in there a bit. thank you

    If it wasn’t needed Ford wouldn’t have used it in the first place. I’d use the seats as is without heating/cooling.

    well i get that it does something i’m more trying to figure out if i can bypass it without issue. like seeing if i can run an inline switch to both the functions and power them like that or if not having the computer would cause major issue

    I got a set of Lincoln LS seats with heating and cooling working on my 1982 fox body so it shouldn't be that hard. I had the wiring diagram, used simple switches and things worked. These seats were from a 2003 and everything going to them was simple 12v systems. There was a small module that all the wiring went to but it didn't seem to be capable of anything extraordinary. It was a long time ago (2004) so I don't remember much about it but it wasn't rocket science.

    You'll need to get the wiring diagrams and work your way through it. I am surprised that this swap hasn't been done yet.

    well what i’m thinking i may do is run straight power to both the functions and just put a switch in there. i just worry the module controls like the overheat circuit so it may cause the heated function to overheat

    Some older cars use to run a timer for rear window defroster grid. Maybe you can work something like that into your wiring.
