04 GT3 sport seat transplant into 99 996 wiring issues

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

A week ago I started my project day with some success and a bit of a failure. I was able to install my 3 spoke steering wheel that I purchased. I also adjusted my Aero wing to the second level which now looks quite a bit more sporty.

Unfortunately, I didn't have as much luck with my sport seat upgrade. Last year I acquired some sport seats from an 04 GT3 which I tried to install in place of my power/heated/memory standard seats in my 99. Thanks to a set of instructions I found on the web, the physical removal and installation of the seats was a breeze but when I tried the seat adjustments I got nothing. I noticed that there was a larger gauge wire in my car's harness that didn't line up to what looked like a power wire in the seat's harness. I wanted to see if anyone knows the difference in the 99 vs the 04 seat wiring pin locations. Also, I wanted to know if anyone knows what kind of tool I need to get to remove the pin and place it in the proper location without damaging the harness plug or cutting and fitting a new wire crimp.

I did a search an only found 1 semi related, but it really had to do with an airbag delete for the passenger side.


Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I had to put the old seat back in.

I thought I'd post a quick follow up. I found a solution to the seat wiring issue by confirm hot wires and borrowing a re-pinning kit from a friend who works at a local dealership. We where able to pull the pin out without damaging the pins and re-insert them in the correct open hole in the plug. Everything works fine now.
