When I bought my van the airbag wires were out as well from the passenger seat spinning around. My airbag light was on all the time on the dash. I finally figured it out and put them back together and the airbag light went off finally. Now I am real careful when I spin the seat and make sure the wires stay connected

Re: Installing heated seats

My seats have lumbar support.... the funny little air bulb you pump up like at the DR's office when taking your blood pressure. What style seats do we have in the SMB conversion? Is it the Ford E series factory seat or a special styled SMB seat?

Re: Installing heated seats

Bones,

I'd be interested in your impressions of the Wet Okoles. Are the seat heaters effective? Reliable? What about the lumbar support - do you have them (or have you tried them)?

Anyone else have Wet Okoles?

Thanks,
Brent

Re: Installing heated seats

I have the generic fit Wet Okoles in my Jeep. The backs on the generic fit are a different material and they turned from black to a rust color in the sun in the first season and they lost all elasticity around the base. The neoprene seams are coming apart and I've had to switch driver and passenger because the door-side covers were damaged solely from use. Needless to say I was underwhelmed and won't be buying them again.

Re: Installing heated seats

Roonie,

Your '06 will have factory Ford seats. The incomplete chassis SMB typically converts has unfinished captain seats that SMB covers to match the rest of the interior.

Random thread bump.

Anyone know part numbers for the pigtail? Where under the dash is the connector located?
C pillar, wouldn't that be B pillar by driver's elbow?

Re: Installing heated seats

Another random thread bump for the same reason: I'd love to have a part number for the pigtail, and where the connection under the dash is.

Cheers...
