    Default 407 memory seats

    Hi All, new to the forum again, I was here some years ago.

    My 407 HD1 SW has electric seats but not memory function for the seats. Is it possible to add a module to do this?
    I have see seat ECUs on ebay with different part numbers (and prices, anyone know the difference?

    and

    TIA Robert

    Those memory boxes stopped at RPO 10919, apparently. Might be worth looking to see if the existing harnesses will accommodate them.

    Default 407 memory seats

    I wouldn't imagine those items actually are the memory component. The seats themselves have to have physical parts added (they record position) I pulled apart some Jag electric mirrors for a project. The memory component is a work of art. I would shop around the wreckers for a 407 SV model. You could pick up some seats with controls cheaply as values of our French cars don't hold well which raises the second issue. Would it be worth it? I have memory seat & mirror on my C4. (you would need to replace mirrors too) They are great for quick driver change yet on a journey I adjust them anyway. I saw a 407sV with a power adjust steering column. Now that is something that we miss as the manual adjust is awkward on a C4.
    Ps. I learnt to drive in my mums series one 505 with the wool seats. Only two adjustments plus a fixed column. Everyone in the family (all sizes) still says it was the most comfortable.

    Nobody has ever made better seats than the 505 woolies. Unfortunately that includes Peugeot.

    I have memory seats on my 406SV. I never use them.
    You could try 1998 on 406 s which are being wrecked, including the coupe

    Thanks all for the replies. I will go to Coles Car sales here in Lismore, and ask them too.
    cheers

    Well a conversation with the dealer put it all in the too hard basket. The only easy way to have memory seats is to buy a car factory fitted with them.

    This is the trouble with dealers (well most of them) they lack imagination (again - most of them). This and the lack of work to expand my brain and diagnostic Capabilities was one of the many reasons I left my ultra cooshy (my spelling hasn't improved) tech advisor role at a dealer and move interstate to a small specialist french car garage.

    I LOVE doing stuff like this to modern vehicles. Like fitting a genuine integrated blue tooth kit to my 1.6hdi 307, along with the self dimming mirror out of a 407. Now starting the next project of grafting electric front seats with seat warmers out of a C4 into the same 307. At the "figuring out the wiring" stage at the moment...

    It's possible like many things, but if no one has done it before then it can be very time consuming. Ie do you graft it into the body system or do you run it as a completely different system? Personally mine will be run on a separate system so as far as the car is aware - they don't exist. So far in my research for the 307 I have found that seat warmers do exist in other markets but not electric adjustable seats (so far).
    Current stash
    too many.

    Passed over stash
    lots.

    Well put; I like to see "backward engineered" projects as well.

    For someone to splice a C2 VTS driveline, harness and all the frills, into a 205Si, would be the kind of thing that thrills me to bits.
