Wiring up heated seats, so I found a hot wire that is only hot when running and connected to gr/red wire on console switch and ran wires to the seats from yel/blu & gry/blu but nothing happens when I push button on console. Tried wiring hot straight to each seat wire and still nothing. I did run a ground for the blk/wh wire off of console switch also. Any ideas on what I need to do? t/u

you may need to do some software stuff in the SJB
the bits are not mapped out for the sport trac, but it probably needs to be enabled there.
some of the electronics or features can be enabled/disabled there
FORSCAN...

sorry, I guess my English must not be very good - the quoted statement actually means everything works from your last post.

I misunderstood the quoted statement as: there were some issues and can anyone offer some ideas, so I offered a suggestion:
There is software "Forscan" that can be used to communicate through the OBD port with the SJB(Smart Junction Box) to enable and disable features on the truck.

This is the restraint system on 2007, the power seat diagram only shows the control side of things, no SRS stuff
