All the replies are very much appreciated.

I think I am going to abandon my original plan to use the matching controls and just ditch the computers as suggested. I'll look into the Z3 controls, that sounds promising.

I'll update with some pictures of my final setup once I get that far.


Thanks everyone!

Hello,

Did you ever have any luck getting the factory controller to work ?
I have the same seat set up I wanted to use in another project. I was wondering if this was possible.

Good thinking, but usually that means the guy never did what he wanted to do.

Rob, it's next to impossible to hook up factory BMW modules to anything but BMW and even then most modules have to be coded into the central controller in order for them to work in a different, same model and year, BMW. My advice is to graft the seats on to easier to wire in motorized bases or find the two wires for each function motor (up, dwn, fwd etc....) save those and scrap everything else. Most motors are like this..... pos 12v on wire "A" and Neg on wire "B" motor spins clockwise and seat moves fwd. Switch the pos 12v to wire "B" and neg to wire "A" and the motor spins counter clockwise and the seat moves rearward etc....
