    Hi guys,

    I have just bought a set of black leather E92 seats. They are full electric, with memory, heating, and air bags.

    Do you know where I can get a wiring diagram for them?


    Basically I'm going to be using them in a classic, so need to know what input wires to connect to get all of the electrics, heating, and memory working.

    Another question: Do I need to disable the air bags for safety?

    Thanks,

    The wiring diagrams you require are all here, http://www.bmw-planet.com/diagrams/release/en/

    As for the safety side, I would be very careful and thoroughly go over the wiring and diagrams to make sure you have got the correct wires, as we wouldn't want to hear a airbag has deployed accidentally. What car are you putting these in?

    Nothing wrong with a classic Mini in my eyes, at least it is a proper Mini, , (Looks over shoulder for New Mini owners,).

    You will have to strip the seat down to set them off, so you may as well remove them,

    Ha ha... I won't comment.. haven't been on the forum long enough yet!!

    Is there any chance you know anywhere else I can get the wiring diagrams? I have a PC and laptop - one Win XP, the other Win 7 and NEITHER of them will run that website properly! My Win 7 refuses to even install the Active X, even though it says it is doing so... the Win Xp one installs fine, but then the zoom function doesn't work... which means I can'y see anything!

    Right got the diagrams working but they are so complicated, I can't make head nor tail of them! I think the wiring for these seats must be spread across about 8 different diagrams!

    And I can't see anything that suggests wire colours for the airbag connections... which is kind of important as I need to make sure they aren't connected!!

    Hi, are they sport or SE seats? If you remove the sport airbags you will be left with large holes in the side bolsters as they are mounted externaly.
    As for the wire connections...............if you look under the seat from front to rear you will see a large yellow plug mounted to the seat frame, if you unclip it you will find it has smaller plugs mounted in it.
    The grey plug furthest to the right (as you look at it) is the airbag loom. It has yellow and brown wires. If you trace this part of the loom rearwards you should find it tie wrapped to a mount and then it dissapears around the seat base and up the seat back on the outboard side.
    If you remove the wires (yellow/brown) from the plug and insulate them you will effectively isolate the airbag, as they should not deploy unless they receive a signal.
    Hope this helps.

    Excellent, thanks for your reply. Will disconnect and insulate those Yellow/brown wires then... have found the ones you mean! Do you think it will be safe enough with them just "disconnected", but still "alive" in the seats?

    These are the seats I have.. not sure if SE or Sport?




    As for wiring... I have figured out from the diagrams the following wires in the "yellow block" (X275):

    2 - Orange/Green - something to do with mirror memory - *leave disconnected?*
    3 - Green - something to do with mirror memory - *leave disconnected?*
    4 - Red/Brown - *30A +12V live feed*
    7 - Red/Black - ?
    8 - Brown - *Ground*
    13 - Brown - *Ground*

    14 - Red - ?
    15 - Black - ?
    16 - Violet - ?
    17 - Green - ?

    18 - Brown - *Airbag*
    19 - Yellow - *Airbag*
    • So, anyone got any ideas what pin 7 (red/black) is for?
    • Anyone know what connectors 14-17 are? They seem to be cut with block connectors on... and don't seem to actually have anywhere to go to in the seat? - see the pic below...






    Thanks for your help guys!!

    Sorry.... something else to note...

    These seats should apparently have heating aswell if the guy I bought them from is right... could the red/black be for that, or have I been stitched up there?

    My seats don't have the seat belt buckles in, like the ones in the pics do... they weren't included... so could 14-17 be for them maybe?
