What are you refering to here? Is there some connector behind the windshield garnish that has something to do with the seat?Any chance that car has the a pillar trim pieces?
That is what I thought, as that is what I was trying to accomplish yesterday. I brought in the battery from my car to connect under the hood, but that part of the harness was trashed.What year?
On my 2018 it looks like you could get to the seat wiring harness unless the seat is almost all the way forward. Might be a little easier to apply power to the seat connector directly if you can get to it and find the pinouts.
I am guessing I would need to remove the fuse block to find these two wires. I will probably go back on Monday to see if I can accomplish this. I'll have to bring a small assortment of wire, clips and pins to give it a try. On another note, do you remember how the seat rest well/clip is removed?
Negative, I was asking about the a pillar trim piece because I've been looking for some to put some tweeters in and rather not use my stock ones in case I mess up hah
I have a 2014. You cannot see anything to do with the seats under the vehicle. I had the same thought. If they had allowed it, I considered torching the seat out, but my luck, I would have burned it anyway.Hmmm that is a pickle indeed. Still not sure what year yours is and how that would impact wiring. I was about to suggest one of those jump pack boxes for temporary power (I bought the little lithium ion almost pocket sized one from harbor freight and I love it, amazing how easily it can start a car) but sounds like you've already tried power in the traditional sense and hit a dead end.
I know on most cars I've been in the seats are a constantly powered up item so you probably don't have much to risk by trying to jump 12v power to the fuse panel on that particular circuit.
Of course I'm also thinking of ways you could get that seat out without needing power. For example is the bottom of the bolt visible from under the car? If so you might be able to back them out with a big pair of vice grips from underneath (and probably count on using your original bolts to install afterwards)
I have also been looking for some time.BTW I was just looking through my ford factory wiring diagram book for my escape and it is incredible; shows every single pin and connector imaginable. I just wish I could find a wiring manual this comprehensive for the Cruze....
Most of the underhood wiring is either gone or damaged. The fuse block is missing just about everything.I'm not an electrician, so don't try this on your car, and I'm not responsible for any damage. With that said, assuming we're working at a U-Pull yard where nearly anything goes this is what I'd try.
On the top of the battery there is an electrical assembly snapped to the top. snap open the plastic on the top of this assembly. The main red battery positive enters the assembly and there are four circuit breakers on the top. These are the breakers shown in the drawing attached above. With a jump pack I would put 12V positive on each of the 100 Amp fuses. For safety I would fuse your jumper leads as to not cause a fire. You don't know how many wires are cut by previous people, and there could be shorts to ground somewhere.
The negative from the jump pack would go to chassis ground. I think you could ground it out to ground stud near the driver side strut tower.
In theory this would provide power to the interior fuse box. The interior fuse box is powered normally with engine off key removed. This powering circuits 5040 and 5140 mentioned above.
Where are you located. I could probably get a set for next to nothing. At the moment, I am planning on returning to the yard in the morning barring any unforseen circumstances. If your willing to pay whatever it costs me and shipping, let me know today sometime.Negative, I was asking about the a pillar trim piece because I've been looking for some to put some tweeters in and rather not use my stock ones in case I mess up hah
Several years ago I put some pictures up at the following website. Due to restrictions on my computer I can't e-mail pictures or even use USB jump drives.
I believe I sent these pictures to Blasirl a year or so ago. The way I have it set up is that you should be able to see view and download photo's in this directory without having to create a shutterfly account.
Shutterfly accounts are free, and I'm sure everyone has a junk e-mail account that they can use for this kind of stuff.
I want to help, but I don't have the time to reformat pictures for posting directly on this site, and unfortunately use of google to send files as attachment's isn't an option either.
Give it a try and see if you can see these files
