2013 to 2014 WK2 seat conversion help

I recently bought a set of what I believe are summit seats (leather on the outside, suede on the inside) for my 2013 Lorado. It seems like the seats will bolt right on But the drivers wiring harness is different for the refresh (2014).
Here is a picture of the 2013 harness coming from the body:

Here is the harness attached to the 2014 seat:


does anyone know of any wiring diagrams or maybe a harness adapter to get these two harnesses to work? Maybe I'll have to pull out my handy multimeter and just splice them up. Thanks in advance.

Re: 2013 to 2014 WK2 seat conversion help

I ran into the exact same problem. I have a 2013 and had some drivers seat issues and found a 2014 slightly used seat that had the same options and same color of leather (tan, perforated, heated/cooled seat). All seems the same except they changed the harness. Were you able to find a solution? I was wondering about swapping the wiring harness out of old 2013 seat and into the 2014 seat. I'm just not sure they are completely compatible.

They are compatible I did it a while ago but ended up cutting up the harnesses and soldering it to the seat

So, you cut wires and soldered together? I was thinking I'd pull the whole harness out of my new 2014 seat and replace it with the 2013 harness. They seem to hook up to the same several grey and yellow plugs under the seat as the 2014. I believe these control lumbar, recline, heating/cooling options, etc. Did everything wok correctly for you (heated, cooling, recline, etc.)? Thanks so much for any input!

Yes. Everything worked as it was suppose to. The wiring was the same. I believe my 2014 seat had options my 2013 jeep did not. So there were some loose ends. But everything worked

I'm just curious what these seats are. The Summit doesn't have suede seats. And they'd say Summit on them. The Altitude had suede but that's all.
