The wiring diagram isnt that complicated...

You'll need to take 2 power wires from Pin 14 on plug c500 on the fuse box.

Then a wire from Pin 9 on the light switch plug

Then a solid earth wire that splits into 2 for each of the switches.

From then on in the power wires goto pin 8 on the switches, then exit out of pin 1 to the seats.

These then go into the large black plug under the seats which is known as C60. The individual plugs thereafter are C60a, b, c, d etc etc...

POwer goes into C60 on the driver side, Pin 9, into Pin 1 on C60d, into the seat heater, exits out to pin 2 on C60d then to pin 10 on C60, round to pin 17 C60 into Pin 1 C60h round the backrest heater and exits out to Pin 2 C60h then to pin 18 on C60. That then goes to earth...

I dont think that we can post up pictures of the wiring diagram re: Forum rules, but i am sure that someone can E Mail a copy to you.

got the wiring diagram (attached), thanks mate

Would I be right in thinking that if Graeme's car has the floor loom fitted, this is the wiring from C60 & C61 (under seats) to C71 (right hand A-pillar)?

So, theoretically, only the wiring from the switches to C71, and to the central fusebox is needed? I presume the grounds (pin 4 of switches) can be connected to any ground point?

if you dont have the wiring plugs for the switch's then the female miniblade crimps from maplins do the job perfectly :L

just wire em up on the switch like in the piccy & then your sorted :) ( thats how my mota & also 4 other local meggers heated seats round here are wired & working well - well 3 of em are, the last one sadly does not have heaters in the seats but the power is getting to the seats fine :} )

is this the same set up for the facelifted cars?

as in if i wanted to put facelifted heated seats into my pre facelift motor and use the cooling feature in the facelifted switches would this work?

there are only 6 wires on the facelifted switches though not 5 a side like the pre versions :(
mk3 mondeo ghia x estate 2.0 auto with:

362mm 6 pot ap stoppers lurking behind some 8 x 18 comps
tv fitted to facelifted dash + headrest screens for both kids
full st kit + powerfolds w/puddlelights with jp stainless exhaust
shonky n/s/f rattle fixed by totd whoopie!
most of the chrome bits done (still looking for fog light surrounds)

no, the facelift setup is different.

that has power going to each seat all the time & then a feed from the switch's which sends a variable signal to the seats to let it know what setting to use.

basically its doable but would involve re-wiring the floor loom too :L ( L11XXY will probably be your man to find out how to do it :) )
