Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
The seats fit fine, but the electrical seat plugs for the two years are different i would like to make sure of the polarity of the plug coming out of the floor on the '98. i can measure the voltage on my '93, but all the junkyard '98's are dead in the wrecking yard. what i need are the color codes for the two wires coming out of the floor on the '98 exp. one will carry +12v (wire color = ????) and the other wire will go to ground ( wire color=???) if i could see a wiring dia. i could see it in a second. any chance for a bit of help so i don't have a meltdown when i push a seat adjustment button? thanks a lot. ggp
A ford agency has, in the parts dept., the wiring diagrams of cars of previous vintages. in one such book, i discovered that the black-with-white-trim wire beneath the front seats of the '98 is the +12v wire, labelled b/w on the diagram. on the '93 it is the blue wire, with a different plug configuration. got both plugs from wrecked cars, wired up a spliced transition harness so that one would adapt to the other, and it all worked fine. hope this info will save some other wrecking yard artist from having to do the same task. ggp
