Seat Wiring

I picked up a set of bucket seats from a Jeep Cherokee. Does anyone know about wiring these things up? I found the wires for the drive motors ( up-down etc.). All the motors work. The drivers side front-back motor says MEMORY on the motor itself and has 3 more wires than the passenger side. The drivers side front-back motor only moves in 1 direction.

There should be (2) wires in each motor for the power. Reversing the power at these wires will change the direction of motor rotation.

The (3) additional wires are for memory feedback. These wires will not be
required.

If the motor won't run by reversing the power wires it is likely jammed at the limit of travel.

So I may have a problem with the switch. I have the tracks off as I'm working on getting them fit into my truck , so its deviantly not from binding up.
Also, the "MEMORY" motor should work OK with just the seat switches?
Anything I should know about the heater wiring? How do I check these?

Each seat has a red and black which operate the motors.
I have a Red/Black and a Lt Bl/Wh left over.I take it these would be for the heaters?

The drivers side has 2 extra wires at the harness. Must be for the memory. Sound about right?

Thanks, Pugsy

The memory motor should work OK without the (3) feedback wires connected.

As shown on the attached diagrams.

The seat heaters probably will need a control box as these heaters are thermostatically controlled and have at least (2) heat settings.
I suggest you get the shop manual for the donor car for more detail on the controller. Or subscribe the www.alldatadiy.com.

The red and black wires would be for power and ground to feed the seat control switch.

The remaining wires are likely for the heaters. Power and temp. control.

Thanks alot.I'll see what I can figure out with all these drawings.
The donor vehicle is not available for parts. The guy I got the seats from had only the seats.
