Didn't even know memory was an option. I thought all power seats came with memory?Airbalancer said:Nice DIY
I have Power Sport heated seats but no memory
would love the get the memory
did not see a # for the memory parts
can this be done?
Yea you can just swap the seats, you see for me I got the rails seperately, not the whole seats. So you would simply have to just install the seats and wire them up skipng the whole dismantling portion.Is is required to replace the rails?? I have a 2004 325i, can I just buy a set of 325i power seats and just wire them?
In US, all power seats have memory; I cant speak for other markets, but they obviously did not.Didn't even know memory was an option. I thought all power seats came with memory?
I have read your install and its encouraged me to attempt converting my heated leather sports seats.
I have got both front seat electric bases but would like to ask a few more questions before I start.
1/ when wiring the seats up you used the correct connections for the electrics, part number 61 13 8 364 842 did you also use the black plug that holds those connections (female plug) or did you simple plug the connections into the seat plug (male plug) ?
2/ when fitted at the factory the electric seats also come with a memory function which you have managed to connect to but can you tell me do you need to have this connected to your door mirrors so to have the full effect of the memory function ?
Like you I really would not install this type of retrofit without doing it as it was intended at the factory (or as close as possible)
Your guidance in this will be greatly appreciated
You don't need the mirror memory module, my car didn't have one. It would be located behind your drivers and passengers side front doors if you have one. So NO it is not necessary nd won't affect the memory functions if you wire it up exactly like I explained in the DIY.Hi Ivegotissues666.
I am still looking into doing your diy on the electric seats, I have the seat frames and electrics but during a search i found that there is i control unit on the doors that maybe part of the memory function.
The part is called a mirror memory module prt# 61 35 6 916 054 (x 2)
If I where to attemt this diy do you think that i would need to get this modules so that a complete oem install could be retrofitted.
Your thoughts on this would b very helpfull
