Power Seat Problem
I have a 2000 National Tradewinds 7371 with 6-way power driver's seat. The gray plastic part (pictured) where the incoming wires terminate is broken on the back side where the wires attach. This broken plastic part is the "female" part which connects to the "male" back side of the seat controller (pictured). All I really need to replace, I think, is that broken part on end of the wire harness. Next best case I replace the wire harness with the unbroken plastic part and just plug into the seat controller. Next case, replace harness and seat controller. My problem is I have searched high and low, including salvage yards, to no avail. I am told that the harness and controller are Ford parts....Ford is no help. Last possibility, maybe I find ANY 6-way harness and seat control (assuming any of them would work) and wire them into my incoming wiring from the power source. The only problem there is that I'd have to make the new seat controller fit where the old one was.
National can't help......they're out of business.
I'm wondering if anyone knows if my seat is by Flexsteel? I'm told that is likely. I sent an email to Flexsteel and am waiting for a reply.
On MOnday I'll start contacting larger salvage yards, online to see if they have exactly what I am replacing.
Any thoughts appreciated!
