Power seats

I picked up an awesome set of leather seats last fall out of a 300M, and want to install them in my Intrepid. I have manual seats now, and I'm really only concerned with making the power function work, not worried about heat or memory options. I have everything (wiring and connectors) from the seats to the BCM and including the BCM, with all connectors. Can I just strip out the seat wiring from the full harness I picked up and run splices from that set of wires that runs up along the floor to the BCM connectors? Will my 01 BCM run the power seats? I shouldn't have to swap in the 300 BCM I'm thinking that will cause issues.

you may want to poke around under the carpet,, the power wire may be there, if not if memory is right,, to make seat work,, without heat and memory,, just run a power and ground to it

Yeah, i just realized what a dumbass I can be sometimes, without looking at the wiring diagrams first I dive in and go ripping the whole harness out of the 300. Well, it can go back for store credit, and the BCM, I went out and found the connector under the driver seat so I'm good to go, couldn't fine the one under the passenger side so may have to splice and run a set of wires over the hump to that connector.

Its cut at the B pillars on both sides, and where it goes up over the steering column. Otherwise pretty much complete, here's a quick pic I snapped, I can email you some more if you want to see close ups or more of it. I'll take $25 plus shipping. That's not including the BCM.

What I did for mine I installed a Bussman AUX ATC style fuse panel on the right side dash kick panel then ran a power cable to the battery. Used a 15 amp fuse and ran some 14 gauge wire to the seats. I tried using 10amp fuses but they kept popping. 15amp hold up just nice.

My 01 ES had power on the pass side. You might try digging around some more

Yeah I found the connector under the driver's seat, but I gotta dig a little more and see if there's one under the passenger side. I kinda doubt it being it was an SE, but you never know.

Once I got the old interior out yesterday, what I thought was the drivers seat power connector was the side impact air bag module connector, and there was no connector for the power seats. However, since that is unused in mine, I used the switched power side of that connector to splice into for power to the seat connectors, and grounded them to the floor ground pins. Here's another question, the duct for rear seat air that runs through the console, that means I can eliminate the flat floor runs that are there now right? Or actually I would need to so the console fits correctly, right?

If the air duct doesn't provide any structural support to the console then i don't see any reason why you would need to have it there.

Well, I think I am going to blend the back half of the console, with the armrest and cupholder, with the shifter console and eliminate the front section altogether. I want something custom and unique, and I don't want to tear out the whole center section of the dash as well as the carpeting to get the other console pieces in place. The B&M shifter I got has a cool base, so I think it will work well with the rest of the console. We'll see come Monday when UPS brings it. I got the old interiror all out of the car over the last two days, and shop vacced and steam cleaned the carpet. It looks fantastic, and seriously brand new and smells great. Found there was some sort of a spill like coffee or hot chocolate behind the drivers seat, had to do that twice. Its drying, then tomorrow I plan to slide the new leather pieces in place. Got lots of mother's leather conditioner cleaner to get them looking good, and then I think we can call the inside doen, for now at least. Stay tuned for some pics when its together.
