Thanks for the link to the other thread. I am going to check the connector wiring more closely. I had access to the MY2015 factory manuals (on alldatadiy .com) and now I added MY2016 to my subscription).sent a PM / see this thread http://jeepgarage.org/f156/oem-heated-cooled-seat-swap-189962.html
body harness doesnt support the vented seat option.
I think it could be that simple. The two fans in each seat appear to be simple 12 volt fans. There is 12 volt ignition switched power to each seat and a center off rocker switch could be added with full 12 volts to the fan motors for a "high" setting in one position and a PWM reduced voltage to the fan motors for a "low" setting in the other position.i think theres more to it than that
The gauges of the seat wire maybe different for the respective years so you may have to order pins from www.mouser.com as well as a crimper from amazon in order for them to seat in their slots and lock in with the body harness connector. its not hard but a PIA. especially reinserting the alignment guide for the seat harness.When I swapped MY17 seats into my MY14 Jeep, I had to switch pins around.
I swapped mine on the seat side and left the vehicle wiring as is. The pins that are being swapped around are different sizes so I cut off the old ones crimped new ones on.
The connector is pretty simple to take apart. Pull off the top part of the connector that is held on by clips on each side, this will allow you to take out the insert inside the connector. From there you can release the pins you need to move.
sorry for the late reply...i can only speak to the MY14-17 that uses the 8.4 to run the individual modules throughout the jeep. im unfamiliar with the wiring for the 1st gen WK2's
You can quickly compare the wires from the body harness on your jeep and those on the heated seats you installed to see if the colors and pins match up.
If they do, sign up for a 3 day Tech Authority subscription and study the wiring diagrams, specifically the body / console harness of your jeep and a comparable one that has heated front seats i.e. a Laredo X. From there you should be able to figure out what the Laredo X has that your E doesn't to make those seats work. Also check your fuse box to confirm a heated seat fuse is present
im 99.9% sure the LaredoX and LaredoE share the same body harness
Thanks! I have a 2012, but this should hopefully help me. I'll PM ya.On my 2014 Limited, (heated front and rear seats, power driver seat with memory, manual passenger seat) I had two big connectors on the passenger side (one yellow and one black) and a single large yellow connector on the driver side.
The 2014+ also has the heated seat module under the passenger seat along with the power inverter. The driver side has the seat memory module. It was the same setup in the 2017 Trailhawk seats that I bought to replace my seats.
I should still have the full 2014 and 2017 connector pin outs. PM your email and I can send them to you if I find them.
If memory serves me correctly, the heated/vented seats all go over the large yellow connector. The other black connector is used for the center console buttons for the rear heated seat and the power inverter.
Ah I have screenshots of both connectors back when I had a 1day subs. for the 2012s....under passenger seat, one does my airbags and power seats and other is heated seats I believe. Lemme see if I can find them.....I'll link them in thisThe second black connector is labeled as the "Console Center/Seat Cushion Passenger/Video Screen Jumper." Looks like it has all the AV signals for the rear seat video, rear power outlet, and center console buttons for the rear heated seats.
In your case, doesn't seem like you would any of the connections on the black connector. Mine came with both plugs because I have the power inverter and rear heated seats.
