GM 2007 electrical seats in streetrod

My friend and I are in the process of installing electric power seats from a 2007 buick lucerne in a street rod. We can get the motors to move by directly wiring to the motors but need a wiring diagram or assistance to understand how to wire through the existing switches on the side(s) of the seats. Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes you do!

Yep! Maybe a dealer or ask at an auto parts store or do a search on e-bay?

I bought some seats out of a Lexus and found the electrical wiring diagram for the entire car on E-bay. These seats require 3 different circuits with 3 different sized fuses supplying current to the various motors and the seat heater.

So if yours are loaded with electrical options like mine, you WILL need the electric diagrams to do this right.

Thanks for the info. We were able to find a wiring overview from a buick dealership. Very high level and not exactly what we were hoping for. We may just bypass the computer in each seat and use a power window switch to alternate the voltage going to each motor.

See attached diagram.
Each motor will require a pair of single pole double throw relays in order to change polarity for reverse and forward.
The seat mounted switches are probably single pole double throw center off.
Test them with an ohmmeter.
