Need Viggen Seat Wiring Diagram

Scored a pair of Viggen front seats, but installing them is going to be more work than I expected. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the seats, Haynes or WIS? The Viggen plug is not even close to my NG900 seat plug. Thanks

My idea is to take off the skins, and put the viggen foams on your ng900 seat frames, then put the skins back on. You will need to trim up the finish piece with the switches. But this way you avoid making brakets and stuff.

I'm going to look into that option, but I saw some pictures from a guy who did that with 9-3 seats in his NG900. The leather was all wrinkly. It did not look very good. And it sounds like it is very hard to remove the heating element from the foam.

Saabsite has fresh heat elements, and you should actually be able to just splice the wires in for the heat.

I'm collecting the foams, and having a shop custom upholster. Its too impossible to find them in beige.

I'm having the salvage yard send me the wiring harness that is attached to their Viggen, so I will have both sides of the Viggen seat plug. I'm going to cut my harness and splice it in.

I got lucky and found a black on gray Viggen seat which matches my interior, and it is in good shape. I don't think I can bring myself to take it apart.

Still need some help on this. I've made a diagram of the driver's seat plug harness and color coded the connectors to match the wires. The plug is gray, and the light gray crosses are empty connectors, the black connectors are grounds. 13 wires in total

The red/blue, green, white, large red and large black go to the seat memory box. Obviously the power for the motors, but I do not know what all of them do.

The green/white, red/green, and 2 blacks go to a plug that changes to just a black and yellow wire that goes up under the seat. The Haynes for my Saab list the black and yellow wires as seat heaters.

The green/brown and a black go to a plug under the seat but are not connected to anything.

The large blue and brown in the yellow box go up the seat and are surrounded by a plastic yellow sheath. I have no idea what this is.

Real drivers don't need seats, our mad skills keep us in place.



I installed a plate to fit the Viggen seats, works well. still need to drill the back inside of the seat track to match the 900 track.



Here's the seat installed



I was able to get the motors to work by hooking up power and ground to the large red and black connectors, referring to the harness picture below. But they only work for about 10 seconds, then I have to pull the fuse and reset it. I need to figure out which wire turns the seat on, so they always work when the key is turned on. Is there anyone with a Viggen which can take the time to measure the voltages going to their seat when the key is on, and reference the harness picture below? It would help immensely.
