Default what happens when I have relays...

take 8 SPDT relays from Ebay for $25 for 10
a driver'* side seat from an 05 GXP that has a busted memory module

start by hacking out the memory seat module and getting rid of the connectors and look up the wires from the FSM

3 hours later.... and 4 different set-ups
tada working GXP seat, minus a memory module and the lumbar controls (for now)

now just to tackle the heated parts

After one semester of electronics I decided I'd leave that area to the true sickos- I'd rather lick a razor blade than go through that kind of hell--- man, what a project! haha!

The weird thing is I don't have any special training in electronics, and the 3 hours it took didn't bother me because I was having fun adjusting the seat in my house

I think I might wire up the old one to a battery charger and use it as a game chair lol

I liked your ingeniuty...we gotta talk about you twisting wires and then taping though. We have ways to make that look 100% professional.

And ... Pat already had the chair...yes, he'* a lunatic.
