switch to power seats

I have come across a set of vaders that are power. I am wondering what sort of mods I may have to make to the wiring to make them work as I am currently running manual seats.

My manual seats are heated so there are some lines that plug into the seats now, are the harnesses any different?

there is a separate harness for the seat motors. But if you can find them off someone's part-out; then you really only need a 12v constant source and a ground source. There is a ground distribution under the carpet under each seat. And I've seen some people splice off the 12v wire on the ciggy lighter for the power to the seat motors.

Easy mod. Just take my advice; DON'T try to run the wires to the factory locations. It's a ton of unnecessary work; and you'll end up bleeding alot. Ask me how I know...

Good luck!
