    Does anybody have a wiring diagram to share for2008/2009 SRT seats in an-body?

    The driver seat is electronic adjustable 3 ways, has heating and a seatbelt wiring. The passenger seat has heating and a seatbelt wiring.

    I have found this but can’t seem to figure it out. And because the 2008/2009 Challenger uses can bus and my old Satellite doesn’t I don’t know how to connect it.

    Did you get both sides of the bus? Seems to me that the power side only shows one fuse that you power the seats with for movement. Possibly another circuit for the heated seats. But one is a 30 amp and the other is a 20 amp fuse. Thats a hell of a load for an old harness unless you have some upgraded wiring.

    I've only got the seat and the connector. I'm going to upgrade the harness.

    Pardon my novice question (I am considering a similar swap) but I assumed you only needed 12v power, ground and switch (with appropriate breakers, wiring, etc) to use factory seats via the factory connector. Stated another way, find seats with both sides of plug, and supply power via wiring diagram to options you are using (is heat, cool, lumbar, recline....). Are you saying that you need the communication part of it too?
    I don't want to use any computer modules.

    Also....@dickdale what car are you putting them in? Do you you have any pics? I am concerned about the seat height in our older cars.I

    Thanks

    I was saying 2 12v circuits to power these seats, 1 20 amp and 1 30 amp. Thats if you want the heated portion of the seats to function. When I said both sides of the bus. I meant the plug from the car side of the harness that connects to the seat.

      I only have the connector of the seat. The other one is no problem. They can be bought through: http://connectors.dcctools.com/home.htm

      I don't want to use a computer either. Haven't installed them yet. There from a 2008/2009 Challenger and going into a 1970's Satellite.

        I have seats from a 2011-2012 challenger in my 68 coronet, not sure if there the same. Only needed a pos and a negative to get the power seats working. Haven't figured out the heat and cooling yet.

        R/T 68

        How is the seat height? Do they look too tall for the car? Got a pic?

        Seat height is close, I am more comfortable leaned back a little so that frees up some headspace. If it is straight up, my head hits the headliner and I'm 5'11", But they look great and match the car perfectly. Dont mind the mess, I'm in the process of putting the rear challenger seats in.

              The seat will be pretty tall depending on the model and floorpan. I have mocked up 2012 SRT seats in the 71-74 charger and the headrest is very near headliner with the stock mounting rails. The Sebring sears in my wagon fit better but aren’t quite as cool. Side note, all of the power seat functions are powered through one positive wire so through the process of elimination, I was able to find the wire I needed. The seat belt and the heat connectors are separate on the Sebring seats.
