Default 09 seats in a 04

I posted this in the eletrical section 3 weeks ago with no luck on a responce so i will try here
Ok. i just bought some 09 seats off ebay for my 04. Bolted in perfect and look just like the originals

NOW. the problem. My passenger seat had a 2 wire plug and the truck has a 2 wire hook up. The new seat has a 6 wire? Which 2 wires do i need to hook up from the new seat to my truck harness?

The drivers seat since i owned the truck, the plug from the truck and the seat have been ripped off. The truck has a 4 wire set up and the 09 seat has a 6 wire? So which wires do i need to hook back up

O and my new seats(09) have a short pig tail that was plugged into the seat harness so all i have to do is but connector to the back of the new plug and i can reuse the 09 connectors

These may work on different style systems. I think the newer seats with the occupant sensing system operate on a high speed CAN network style communication setup where the old ones did not. You may need to swap your old wiring over.

the seat belt/pretensioner should be the only thing you have to plug in. just swap your old ones to the new seats.

Yeah... my thought is your '03 is set up to turn the air bag off manually where the newer trucks have a weight sensitive air bag system... it's probably part of that... assuming by "truck" you mean the wiring harness that comes to the bottom of the seat...
