Alot of manufacterers will use the same wiring harness in several different models of the same car.

Those are the the plugs for the heated seats and TC.
but wouldnt there be three plugs, or do the heated seats run off just one of the plugs.

So does this mean that all i have to do is plug them up. when i get a different center console and they will work. or what do i have to do.

You will also need the seat heaters for the bottom of your seats. I doubt the traction control will just "be there" but I am not certain if that is controlled by the pcm only, or if it requires additional sensors.

Common sense would dictate that it requires some additional sensors, but sometimes especially with cars, common sense can be flat out wrong.

Im sure one of the tuners on here would be able to better answer the TC question. Tom? Wayne?

Doesn't the traction control require ABS brakes?
The seat heaters probably wouldn't be all that hard to add, but putting in ABS brakes (if you didn't already have them) to get the TC would be costly...

I was reading up and it says that the TC controlled cars use the same PCM/ABS module as non TC cars except that they dont have a Yaw Sensor and something else. Its in the Haynes book if anyone has it.

^^^That sounds more like Stability Control, or more properly "Advance Trac",
which was available on standard Foci.
In fact, I didn't think the Haynes manual had any SVTF specific information...

I hear ya...I absolutely love mine, and probably won't have a car without them ever again.
There is a "How To" for the seat heaters, though the parts you'll need aren't cheap.[:(]
