Plugs under the front seats?????

I am in the process of replacing my interior carpet so I removed the entire interior to do so. My question is what are the two large plugs that plug into the bottom of each seat? I don't have heated seats nor do I have power seats. What would this be for?

it could be a standard thing.. like for the lock switches, there are LEDs inside the switch, but they're not actually wired up.. Ford

so all foci have them, but won't be "hooked up" unless you choose/have that option in your car. but you got me curious now! i'll take a looksee on mine i'm sure there's a way to add heat.

It's your seat belt warning indicator. If you leave them unplugged, I can't remember but I think your seat belt light will stay on.

Hm.. For my Seat Belt Chime, all I did was follow the combination in the Manual to stop the Noise (buckling and unbuckling seat belt a certain number of times). And, the warning lamp still pops up.

I disconnected them not to long ago and in my 2001 ZX3 they are definitely routed to the airbags in some way. Just put em back, you'll be fine.

agreed they would be for heated seats or for the seatbelts. or for power seats if they came.. easier to install them all on there cars instead of doing say 100 without then 100 with.. having to change the setups of each... plus makes for an easy upgrade to go to heated seats or power seats.. or both

They have several slots for terminals so it's universal for whatever option your car has. If it's unplugged, it'll keep your light on. I don't see how it has anything to do with the airbags unless you have airbags in your seats like on the SVT Recaro's.

kris4christ2: That's normal with that mod.

Thanks for all the help guys. I just couldnt figure out why such a large plug was plugged into the bottom of each from seat. It seems like alot of wires and a big plug for a simple seatbelt chime. I should figure out how to post some pics?? that would make things so much easier!!!!

It also activates the seatbelt tensioners. In an accident, I think you'll find there is a small explosive charge that goes off to pull you in tight with the seatbelt.

In other words, plug it back in!
