    driver side will fit, dont know about passenger side as that is manual in the XLT i think. drive side should plug in to the harness as they are all the same to keep manufacture costs down. but you are missing the buttons in your middle dash area that would control heated seats. the wiring is there behind it - i replaced my radio and saw the wiring there. im not sure if your SJB/GEM will need a flash or need fuses in the fuse box. could be plug and play.

    Really appreciate your reply. I was hoping that the harness already had everything and was planning on getting the buttons for heated seat from the vehicle I am getting seats from.

    So the plug for the heated seat on the passenger side should be under my current seat also?

    These may help in figuring out the wiring. For the passenger seat, both heated seat element connectors are under the seat, one gray, one green. Both are 2 wire connectors. The seat heaters are wired in series, so any break in the circuit means both seat bottom and seat back will not work.

    Did any Sport Trac ever have passenger power seat, like the adrenalin? Also is it made in the same plant as the Explorer?

    P/u seats today, installed easy rear driver and started taking out rear psg. Front driver on power seat has 2 plugs and 1 on psg. Will probably install front psg and see what happens. Probably nothing but at least I had them cut harness to floor so I can splice. Seats are out of 2008 explorer. Any advice t/u

    Paul,

    Donyou have this diagram for the driver seat and possibly for a 2008 explorer with 10 way power seat? Went to dealer and they couldn't even get close to what you have. T/u

    Working off of these trying to see what to match up with new wires. Tried putting power to seats power and ground but nothing. Wondering if needs to be connected to door module?
