E39 Electric Memory Seat Install Guide 'How to' PIC HEAVY

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm sorry to interrupt you, but I need your help I believe.

I'm planing to replace manual seats with comfort power seats without memory, by the way my car is 2001 model e39 520i.

I have bought seats but have no Idea where or how should I get power for them! Thought is so easy but it's not :-)

Can you help me out? I need to know where do I have to get power for seats and heating, which type of connectors do I need, etc.

Your help would be much appreciated :-)

Best Regards,

Khosro.

The power for the passenger side is the same as in this guide. For the driver side you'll have to check the motors on the seat. If they have little black boxes on each motor then it is a memory seat and it will draw power constantly and will drain your battery over about two weeks.

Ray any chance you know what pin on the facelift seat that the p bus goes to?

No idea Chi. Never wired it up with the yellow connector.

Have a look on WDS. It'll tell you on there. Find the connector number and look in the connector list.
