Ok y'all...I have a problem. A while back I purchased some SN95 leather seats to replace the ones stolen from my '90 GT. My old seats were manual adjust, but the SN95 seats I bought included a drivers seat that is a 6-way power adjustable.

Since the harness plugs don't match, does anyone know how I can modify the existing plugs (in the car and on the seat), identify which wires should be matched up so I can plug it into the seat and power it up?

You can determine which leads go to which switch with a continuity gauge. You could also go to a library and photocopy the wiring harness. How many wires are there?

I agree with Steve; you'll need a service manual with a wiring schematic. For that matter, you'll probably need both the 1990 and 1995 schematics... it's possible that the wiring color coding isn't typical of the two years, but I'm just guessing on that one

How many wires are on each plug.

I'd go to the library like Steve and Todd said.
I'd have know idea where one is,but I've heard talk of them.

Thought so.

Steve, I'll double check, but I think it's a 5-wire plug on the seat. Can't remember how many are on the car leading to the seat.

69, somebody stole the whole car and stripped it. Happened back in March of this year.
