Limited leather going into laredo but no clue how

Hey guys, so a couple days ago I bought a complete black leather interior from a 98 limited from a guy for $70 anyway my plan was to put it in my 98 Laredo but, I really want the power option for the driver and passenger so I started looking for info on here and the web on how to do it. I found some info but not alot cause most the time it was swaps into xjs and me being not very savvy with electrical stuff, I thought there was no hope but today I went to the dealership and asked for like a diagram or something that could help but they didn't BUT the guy told me and most of the zjs have a wiring for power seats already but it was just hidden under the carpet so I looked but I couldn't really see anything I hope you can see the pictures. So that's where I'm at. If there isn't a plug and play option what would be the best way to hook these up? They are just the power and lumbar not heated.

Sorry here are some better pictures of what's underneath the carpet. And if someone can help just know that I'm very much a novice to anything electrical so if you can imagine explaining it to a small child that would probably be the route you should take haha

i swapped 93 limeted into a 98 larado.

I just took a test light and poked into wires in the rocker pannel area till i found one that was hot. Spliced the positive of seat plug into that wire and found a ground. (ground can be to its own seat mounts)

It blows once in a while and i have to replace the fuse. (replace with higher amp fuse)
Took a few min the first time to pull fuses till i found it was the rear hatch (window and wiper wire)

drives side is still unknown on what wire i used. i did the same thing but nothing has blown yet.

I did this swap years ago on my former ZJ.

Thread here ----> http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/u...-again-280333/

It's likely you're going to have to improvise and fabricate. That's what I wound up doing.

This is a very good way to set your vehicle on fire Find a +12V, don't know what you're connecting to, once the fuse blows replace with larger But, works on a mud rig or something like that..

Ideal way to do it would be to run a 12v wire to under the seat with a fuse and ground to seat. then your set.

i just jumped my 12v of a random wire

hense the Obama rig...

I have the seats and connector blocks out of a limited. In a 98 laredo there are NO traces of a power seat harness.[at least not in mine} My way of thinking is if you intend on doing it do it right. I have the harness ends and will be running the circuits in the proper wire size to the proper points. I want all the bells and whistles,heat, memory function, ect. Here are the diagrams for simple seat motor drives.

Honestly Im thinking on running a power wire from the battery to the drivers seat with a fuse able link.however dont quote me on that I do have a complete interior wiring harness kicking around in a box lol if I feel like it ill trace the wires and do it properly.

Too small gauge wire + large fuse + lots of current = resistance -> heat. It can actually heat up so much it sets ie. plastic on fire. It's a fairly remote chance in this case since seat adjustments aren't used for extended periods of time, but can happen nevertheless.

As was mentioned, the best solution if OP can't find the connector, run a dedicated +12V feed straight from the battery through a fuse.

Screw electric seats. My limited has them. Passenger won't go back all the way. Like something's blocking the track. I'm swapping cloth mechanical seats in.
