FocusontheZX Okay cool... So anyone that has put non-svt seats in their svt could actually hold the answer! Or I got to find a set of SVT fronts, but I really like my gray leather ones.

Yes, they are the same.

FocusontheZX Yeah, I'm not just going to start putting plugs in holes. The little clips from the seats will fit into the slots on the recaro harness. So I just need to figure out which ones are for seatbelt, airbags, and the one that goes to the buckle on the passenger, and the heat. Does anyone know what the normal SVT seat clip looks like?

FuhFuh Focus Also be sure to remove the negative terminal on the battery before removing the seats.

jimbone69 its a pain! ive searched and searched, either the people that know how dont want to chime in or the people with the diagrams dont want to share. i know that on mine, the air bag/seat belt minder on the pass side has the same color wires, so dont go just cutting stuff up before you know which one is which. here is a thread with some info that may be useful to you!

scrammer i would disable the belt minder and just not plug the seats in.
granted, you wont have heat though

Davey Boy If this is a horrible idea and is likely to set off the airbags, SOMEONE please inform me and FocusontheZX before that transpires! Thanks!

Davey Boy Unfortunately, I have 0 experience with that. maybe you could just look at which wires go where on the Recaro and the same for your seats, then put the same ones together and see what happens.

FocusontheZX Anyone? Wiring diagrams, or know from experience?

Non Recaro seats in Recaro car help!

Okay so this weekend, I underwent the process of doing a power window and lock upgrade. The donor car was a totaled ZX3 SVT EAP, and I used the wiring harness from it to put power windows and locks in my ZX3. After a ton of work, every thing works! Now my only issue is that car had Recaro seats, which I don't have. The seat plugs are bigger than the normal seats. I need to know how to wire up the plugs from my seats to match the Recaro seat harness plugs so that my airbag light and seatbelt alarm will go away. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
