Default running a power seat in a 90 ranger

i got a set of 95 explorer limited seats (i think that is the year) but the only problem is that they are power seats and my seats are manual movement i have the harness for both seats i was just wondering if anyone has found a way to retro fit a powered seat into a non-powered ranger

Powered seats are commanded through the BCM.
Goooooood luck finding a 1990 Ranger/Explorer BCM with power seats.

most explorer seats use two wires to move them. a power and a ground. one is black, the other is black with a white stripe if i recall correctly.

Wouldn't you just need to connect the power wire to a 12v source?
Then ground the other wire.
