cl-s seat swap help!!

i got a deal on a set of front acura cl-s seats and i'm trying to do the swap. now we all know they bolt right up but the passenger side seat is power and the factory accord coupe seat is not. that's no big deal right now. my problem is the i can't decipher the harness. it has lots of wires like a cd player and its got me stumped . has anyone sucessfully completed this swap or know where i can get the wiring diagram for free? any help would be appreciated.

^^ chill out, man. To this day I don't think anyone on V6P has taken a set of CL-S seats and tried to bolt them into an Accord V6, so no, we didn't know that they bolt right up.

As far as the wires, go to the Acura dealership and see if you can find someone (usually a tech) who is nice enough to get you a pin-out diagram. That's what I did when I swapped my shifter assembly and I had to figure out which wire controlled which shift lock solenoid. I'm assuming the CL-S will have power, ground, and also input(s) for the seat heater. Only the Canadian Accord has seat heaters, so you may want to look into that harness to see if they match up.

Wow I asked an honest question, its not like its common sense/very common to see people with acura cl-s seats in their cars

Then again this is coming from someone who paid for a used transmission with 121K so a rational argument might not be possible

funny how that tranny i paid for runs with no probs at all. a deal is a deal and maybe if you spent less time trying to throw salt at someone you know absolutely nothing about you could actually find deals like me. not one for "internet thugs" so just grow up and try to do better.

I picked up some black cls seats tried to figure the wiring and gave up.
But you are correct they do bolt right up on all for brackets.

Too many wires side air bag, seat heaters,etc.

fasteddie15 - can you tell us how many wires there are coming from the seat harness?

Also, the side airbag connector should be completely separate...and yellow. I can only imagine there being 3-4 wires. Power, ground, and one or two going to the seat heater switch.

I don't have the specs on the CL-S harness...but if it's set-up anything like the Accord, there should be a bunch of wires that split off into different connectors to be plugged into the seat. You probably don't have this harness, so I'm going to assume you only have the connectors that are attached to the seat/motors/heaters.

First of all...is your Accord driver's seat 8-way adjustable or 2-way? Is your Accord passenger seat power or manual?

My Helm's manual is showing that there should be a 6 pin connector for each heater switch, and then a 3 pin connector for each heater. This is for the Accord, so it may not help you with the CL-S seat at all, but it might.

Look bro, I have had the cl-s seats in my av6 coupe for 2 years now all you have to do is leave he airbags unplugged and on the acura wiring diagram take all units that have power or are supposed to go to a fuse and give them constant power all that need ground, ground them. I think there are 4 powers and grounds per seat for forward, back, up, down. I may be mistaken as it has been a couple years since I wired them up. I didnt mess with the seat heaters, but I hope this info helps

Any update to wiring these up correctly? I think it's pointless to put these seats in you car if you're going to lose the side airbags and seat heaters. In that case...I'd just get Accord Coupe seats. Let us know if you found a wiring diagram for the seats!

Are cl-s seats worth all the trouble? I don't recall them being that much better...
