Has anybody wired up power seats from a 93 Bonneville SSE (excuse the language) into your truck?  I was given these power buckets seats with the center console switch and need some translation on the wiring colors.  There are 7 wires that feed the two seats and center switch.  3 orange with black tracer. 3 Black. And one gray.  An orange (with black tracer) and a black set go to each of the seats and the center switch while the gray goes to the switch.  I'm guessing that the blacks are ground and the orange with black tracer goes to power.  Is that correct?  Where would the gray connect to?  There is also a vacuum line that feeds the lumbar support for each seat.  Would this vacuum line connect directly to the vacuum tree on the intake?  Does anyone have access to a GM electrical repair manual?  I've already checked the Chilton's manual with no success.

I could really use someone's help.  I don't want to fry the seat motors.

Ok, I'm going to try this one again too (Grrrrr!)  I have some lincoln seats
that I will be putting in the bronco after I get them repaired and all you
have to do is trace the pairs of wires from each motor and hit them with
power.  They don't really have a ground, they both can be hot depending on
which direction you want them to run.   Reversing the polarity should
reverse the motor as well.  Once you have them sorted out you use a light
tester on the switches to do the same thing and connect them, piece a cake
:-)  The switches may run to ground but at the motor end I wouldn't expect
to see any grounds.

To get the things out of the lincoln I had to run power to them and I used
two wires and reversed the polarity to move it back and forth.

The lumbar supports should be filled with an air pump not vacuum so there
should be a little motor in the mess somewhere that does that and that's
what the hoses hook up too AFAIK.

I would bet the gray is just for a light for switch. Most GM lights on dash
and under dash have the gray wires going for
lights on panels. doesn't the switch or somewhere have just a power lead and
maybe a ground? Most seats have plug in
connectors they snap together during assembly for this or seatbelt warnings
and etc. Look for a plug on a wire under seats or under console. Course if
they were just "hacked" out and wires cut, that won't be any help. In my
local Library they have wiring manuals in the Resource book section (can't
take out, can make copies) for the different decades of cars. I have used
them and they are good and have most models. Most of the time if you stay
within the Brand most colors and routing are the same between models.
