ok how do I get power to the seats? My stock ranger seats aren't powered.
I don't think there's any wire connectors there, like its pre wired, like it was for cruise control, lol.

won't be prewired for power seats. it wasn't really offered. you will have to run two wires to each seat from the fuse box, or where ever you want to get the power from.

seats take sockets. 10mm i think. console, not completely sure. assorted smaller metric, maybe some torx, maybe some phillips.

as for the seat belts, you will have to reuse your factory ranger belts. you will have to bolt them to the side of the explorer seat frame. there are two holes that can be used. the explorer seat belt brackets on the seat frame will need to be cut off and discarded for 98+ applications. the brackets can be used with 97 and older though.

Default Re: Seats that fit in the Ranger

Well i got a hell of a steal..all for $50.

I got two powered buckets seats, a full center console with cd changer ( that i probably wont use), a gauge cluster, a kick panel, the gauge cluster dash trim, a full radio bezel with cd player, a locking glove box and key, a ton of fuses, a steering wheel air bag, and cruise control pods.


The driver side seat worked fine, powered it up, moved it to the front to get the rear bolts, then moved it to the rear to get the front bolts.
But the passenger one was a bitch, for some reason it didnt want to go all the way forward!! it would go back just fine, and then go forward some, till it hit a point and would just crawl to a stop.. making it a pain to get the rear bolts out..
any ideas on what could be wrong?

could need to be greased, could be bad motors. if the motor is bad, you'll need to find new tracks.

Thanks.

Do these things have limit switched on them, that stop them from going so far. A bud at work says it may be screwed up or need adjusting.

Also what's the best way to clean these seats and console parts before installing them?

What will be the best way to get power to them? My bud says you should have them on key accessory power, so it's not just always getting power from the battery and has to have the key turned on for power.

Run a wire from your batt to a relay under your seat. Then from the relay to the seat. Run a wire from your relay trigger to a yellow wire under the dash label ignition. Fuse at the battery 15a. Fuse at the ignition wire 1a.

Im not sure if those will fit, but $100 for both, that's $50 each, I would talk him down to $75 total. They are from a 1996, they are 15 yrs old!! I scored 2 powered seats from a 1995, along with a full center console, roof rack, steering air bag, gauge cluster, glove box, radio bezel with radio, all for only $50.
