2014 LT program car, Pull Me Over Red, 1.4T Auto
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 then tried to reach under the seat to see if I could find the connector. I have to back track here a moment, I removed the passenger seat the week before and ran out of time to continue, so luckily when I returned, the rest of the seats were still there. The only changes were someone broke the drivers window to get the drivers mirror shell cover off - go figure (the door would not open), the front door panels were removed and someone trashed the engine to remove the valve cover.
So this brings me back to yesterday, with the seat covering the bolts, I thought I could powerup via the connector, but I could not feel it, from the front or the back. I removed the center console and everything else to get better access. After giving up and starting to strip the seat back of its cover, a gentleman stopped by and ask for information on removing the sail panel garnishes (the fake rear windows) and after I explained what I do and loaning him a tool to do it, he asked why I did'nt open the door?
I told him I couldn't budge the door the previous week, it was smashed a bit, so I did't even try. He reached in through the smashed window and pulled on the cable normally connected to the release mechanism and walla, the door opened. I still could'nt reach anything though.
I asked Carbon02 for some insight and in his response he mention the trap door and I hit an aha moment. I had completely forgotten about how I had disconnected the passenger seat the week before.
I see one more trek north to the junkyard.
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?I believe powering circuits 5040 and 5140 may "wake up" the interior fuse box, allowing the drivers power seat to move..
Good Luck View attachment 270149
Does anyone have pictures of the back of the interior fuse block? Or maybe a trick to power this up?
Thanks all for the information
