wiring Gm power seats

HI I'm fitting a pair of power leather seats from an 89 Eldorado to my 38 chevy 2 door hump back - i should have stayed simple but the price was right - and the leather was super sweet - the passenger side is cake - hook up red and to power and black to ground - everything works great - -- The drivers seat (the one the means something) has a "brain box" in the harness - The schematic in the factory service manual doesn't spell it out - I'm assuming its the memory seat controls . does anyone have any EXP with this type of transplant - Thanks Matt

Hi: I'm going to move your post to Electrical. I think you'll get more and better answers there.

The GM seats I'm installing in a customer car only have 2 wires one is ground and one is hot key on. There is some kind of "box" but I think it is just a selector for the switches as the switch wires all run to it. 30 amp fuse.

Thanks -

thanks - These seats had the "memory option . its actualy a computer with serial comunications with the memory selector -- all of the flexible shafts have position sensors on them and they feed back to the computer box (about 6 x 8 inches clipped to the springs of the seat - . i cliped out all the sensors and the cumputer box - using the the passenger seat as a guid i used clip leads from the switch to the motors and i can make everything to work so im just goign to wire up a new harness that mirrors the passenger sid set up . that way i just need the hot and ground in - the eldo scemat has them fed by a 30 amp breaker ----Id be interested in anything anyone else has done with this sort of thing - Next up i need to do the seat heaters -
