Yes you could do all that, but it would be cheaper just to buy a explorer that has leather, that car isnt worth $1500 and leather seats will be $500 each, unless you find one in a salvage yard that you can get parts out of?

1997 Ford Explorer Power Seat Wiring


There are several options. It all depends on how bad you want the leather seats. You could disassemble the seats and transfer the upholstery from one seat to the other, or you could transfer the motor mechanisms from one seat to the other. The leather seats are most likely equipped with seat heater elements...there is no way you are going to get them to work without redesigning half of the vehicle, so you can either leave the heating elements out when you transfer the upholstery or just leave their respective connectors disconnected.

I have a 2010 Honda accord v6 leather beige interior. It gets dirty, so if I buy seat covers for my car, can I will feel my seat warmer through my seat covers?


you can fit covers BUT any dust that gets between the cloth and the leather will act like a scourer and take the shine/laquer off,making it even harder to clean in the future.use "simple"(unperfumed)soap to clean the leather,and wipe with a damp cloth after.

What Is a SUV


Hi,
SUV is the widely used and known acronym, for Sport Utility Vehicle. At first conception, an SUV was a vehicle that combined the towing capacity of a full-size truck with the passenger and storage capacity of a minivan. However, as consumer demands have changed, so has the SUV. Many manufacturers now focus on fuel-efficiency and driving and riding comfort, rather than towing capacity.

The typical features of an SUV include;
1. seating for five to seven,

2. high seating and road positioning, roomy interior,

3.Non-dedicated trunk space,

4. High engine capacity and 4 wheel drive capability.


Though the SUV was originally designed to be an off-road vehicle for sporting purposes, their popularity has spawned several different breeds, including the luxury SUV.
Like cars, the SUV has different classes and sizes. The mid-sized SUV, which typically seats five, is the best-selling variety in the United States. During the SUV’s height of popularity, the Ford Explorer remained the top-selling model. The compact and full-size SUV appeals to many consumers equally, but for different reasons. The luxury SUV has the same features as standard class models, but contains upgraded interiors and trim packages typically associated with luxury model vehicles, such as leather interior.


When next you hear the name "SUV",i believe you now know what they are talking about.

Where can i purchase front leather seats to replace old ones for 1998 ford explorer


Try a wrecking yard. We just got a rear leather split bench seat from a '98 Explorer for $75 (no rips) and two front buckets for $150. They are in very good condition. They'll be much higher anywhere else. They have the same bolt pattern as a 1993, as that's what we're putting them in.

Heated leather seats will not heat up. Switch lights up and all fuses are okay. Is there a hiddedn relay I am not finding? Is there a quick way to determine if the problem is in the heating element under...


are you saying neither the heated seat cushion nor heated seated back on either seat works? But the light or lights does work?

Please rate as solved if this helps you. It took some time to dig all this stuff up. Please report progress.

Here's some info to start you off:

  • The heated seat is inoperative — seat does not heat but the heated seat switch illuminates when pressed
  • Circuitry.
  • Heated seat module.
  • Seat heater and temperature sensor.
  • Seat back heater.
  • Heated seat switch.
