: Seat question on 93-96 Fleetwoods

I just swapped seats between my 93 & 96 Fleetwoods. Everything matches up perfectly but for some reason the recline on all the front seats doesn't work. I'm assuming GM just changed up the order of the wires on the harness under the seat. Anybody else had this problem?

Yeah, that's weird. There really shouldn't be a difference aside from the fact that each has a different lumbar control setup, but maybe that also causes a wiring change. It really shouldn't, and I think others have done this kind of swap before, so it may just be a little malfunction of sorts caused by something in the removal/installation. I've had a seat go wacko before, out of the blue, and there's lots of power controls so it's hard to tell.

It's gotta be a change in the wiring of the harness because both front seats in both vehicles will not recline.

Did you jump a power from the harness under the seat?

Did you jump a power from the harness under the seat?Yes, I jumped power from my heated seat switch.
