03-02-2004 07:49 AM It should work by attaching orange and black main leads from the seat to "+" & "-" respectively. You have either a bad switch or all the motors are fried! I vote for the former. Find the problem the old fashioned way. Hook up the power and get out your trusty multi-meter and start chasing voltage downstream - main leads at the switch, flick a switch one direction and test the voltage in that lead, and continue this until you zero in on the cause.

Ronhel Update

I tore apart the plug. There are 6 pins not 8 ( sorry for mistake)

3 pins have smaller wire ( I traced 1 to the seat belt switch)

3 Larger diameter wire 2 orange 1 black

Using black as ground & 1 orange as positive I got movement in the motors 2 of the 3 motors moved but only in one direction

Trying the other orange wire, nothing happend

Any other help or suggestions

GM Power Seat Wiring

Trying to wire up a power bucket seat.

It it from a pontiac grand am with the switches on the side of the seat.

It has a plug under the seat that originally powered the seat, it has 8 prongs, I have tried powering the prongs, & grounding the seat belt bolt , with no luck at all, I can not even make 1 motor growl.

Any help or suggestions would be apreciated
