Hi there.

I am currently building a racing cockpit at home and bought a passenger power seat from a 2001(?) 9-5.

We're trying to figure out how to get the controls to work to adjust the seat via 12V/12A coming from a battery charger with a lighter plug on its back. Will that work? We found someone that had measured the motors to use up to 7A, so that should be low enough to work with the 12A plug.


We disconnected the airbag by cutting the yellow cable hose so that should be out of harm's way.


We tried plugging in the main current and ground, but of course nothing happened.


Can some of you Saab wizards guide us in the right direction to make this comfy seat work indoors?
Preferably with pictures and/or clear instructions... We were scratching our heads there, but figure we have to put some more grounds in, and maybe current to some more slots

We're at a loss here!

I regularly do this. Find the harness for whichever motor you're trying to operate and run aligator leads to the terminals. Hook it up to a jump box or battery. If motor turns the wrong way reverse polarity.
