1998 Manual to Power what do I need??


I am installing a set of powered seats from a Chrysler Crossfire into my car. As stated the car came with manual seat. What will I need to do the wrap? Is the car prewired for power seats or do I need to buy a wire harness. Do I need a seat module , from my searches this is for powering the seats when the door is open or can I just connect to an empty fuse box location so that will give power when the car is on and not drain the battery.

I not sure but I think all powered Crossfire seats are heated. I live in Florida so do not really need it for now. But it be a nice feature for the one or two cold days. So if I going the heated route I will need the new harness correct ? If I do go the for heated I will buy the switches and a new console bezel. I have seen were others have wired the seats into the cig lighter, but do not know if that a safe route to go. I have done searches for the seat wrap, but all seem to be for post facelift models.

So any advise or instruction would be great.
Thanks Sive
