Hi all just need some help I am looking at getting a set of AU electric seats from a series 3 Fairmont and installing in to my falcon Wagon.

is this an easy plug and play approach are is it linked in to a bigger system as I know that it has a memory system as well.

has any one done this or know what I am in for??

thanks Doug

The memory controller is in the drivers door.
They all link together.
The mirrors are connected to the memory system as well and are different to a normal mirror.

Thank Matt

See attached... Then it depends where these modules are mounted as to how hard it is to get wiring to them...

Cheers,
Tim

The seat module is under the drivers seat - from memory, the mirror module links to it.
It depends if you want the mirrors to position with the seat position - the mirror module also dips the mirrors when reversing, there is a tech doc in the AU section on how to set that up.
The mirror module sits up near the electric mirror switch - behind the door card, just looks like a small cct card. It seems to be optional in AU/BA Ghias and Fairlanes.

Snap,

That would explain why the reverse light wire also feeds into it...

It also has a speed input so something must change with road speed too...

The wiring shows 3 wires linking the modules together and what appears to be special mirrors which have power and earth and then a bus signal wire for control... probably as rare as rocking horse s**t should one ever fail...

The memory thing seems like it would turn out to be more a PITA than a help...

Cheers,
Tim
