    You can get in touch with Mike of M2Mods on this forum. Get him some information and pictures and he can probably figure out what's needed.


    Known issues regarding Heated/Ventilated seats or other integration issues?

    Other issues. The module did fix the heated/vented seats and heated wheel soft key issues.

    I will be replacing my front driver manual seat with a powered seat (no heat, no cooling, no memory). The connector under the seat on my SLT apparently does NOT have the 12v power that is needed. What is the recommended gauge wire if I want to run the power from the battery to the connector under the seat? Do I also need to run ground wire? Any ideas on good location/method for getting through the firewall?

    Thanks

    It should work without a separate ground wire in most cases because the seat is grounded to the floor of the truck. Make sure you run an in line fuse for the power wire. I usually use a 20 Amp fuse. Run it through the clutch pedal delete plate as Mpgrimm2 stated.

    Thank you... Before I start pulling new wires and tearing out the old seat - I am comparing the connectors under the powered seat with the connectors under the original seat. I notice that the powered seat has an extra gray plug with one black wire, that my original seat does not have. What is this one wire, gray plug for? Can I just ignore it?

    EDIT: Install complete, working great even with nothing connecting anything to the extra gray plug.

    The grey 20 pin connector is for heated/vented seats and memory pedals. it's not necessary in your application
