swapping manual seats to electric. help
 
has any one tried this? going from manual cheap seats to electric with memory. one dodge dealer says $1200.00 for parts the others say $2500.00!! has any one else done this? maybe if i had an electric schematic for seat and truck i could figure it out.

I did a relatively cheap swap to electric on my 2011 ST and it was a straight forward swap just needing 12V and ground. If you want to step up to the memory seat then you will probably be talking a module and wiring to hook up to the LIN bus system and programming to activate the system which has proven to be difficult due to dealers lack of available sales codes within their system.

If you do go after the memory seat hopefully you find someone who has already done that so you can benefit from their experience. If you do get a memory seat used for a great deal and then find you cannot use the memory component you can purchase the side trim plate to eliminate the extra switch on the side of the seat and make it just like any other power seat.

There is a member here who did the swap and said all wiring was there. Just swap and plug them in

not that easy. plugs dont match. yes they do have memory but no need for it. new module is @1000.00
