Poke around under the seat and carpeting a bit. See if the connections for the power seats are hidden under there somewhere. They may be as the same wiring harnesses can be used in different models.

There is absolutely nothing dumb nor BS about requiring a minimum post count before posting pics. The reason is to avoid a forum totally filled with spam.For some reason this forum won't let me share pictures because of some dumb post count BS so here's some links to the them:
Fair enough, can we get back to the topic at hand? I'm hoping I haven't overlooked something dumb in my purchase and I'd like to cancel it before they ship if that's the case lol. It's a pretty safe bet that the seat memory is connected in the actual seat and not in the car's computer right? Otherwise I'd have to do some sort of programming to make the seat work which is not something I'm capable of.Blame the bots, not the forum.

Astray.. I was wondering how this went. I am getting ready to buy a leather set with power driver and heat on both sides.So I went ahead with the install and I'm happy to report that everything is plug and play. Mazda even included the fuses already in the driver's side interior fuse panel. I was able to swap out the seats and the Indicator Unit just by swapping the new ones for the old and now have a power driver seat as well as the heated seat functions. I will do a write up using the service manual later at some point, but I referenced it for everything I did. By far the most difficult part was the tear down of the rear, center, and front console to get access to the climate control + indicator unit so I could swap it out. There is no easy way around this unfortunately, you have to take out the front console before going after the indicator unit. Figuring out how the shifter knob came out took way too long and a spring inside of it popped out that took me quite awhile to figure out how it was in there in the first place since it wasn't something I was supposed to have touched. Make sure to unplug the negative terminal of the battery before doing anything and you won't have any dash lights come on at all.
Sorry it took awhile to reply, but it was literally just plug and play. As long as you can disassemble and swap out the right parts then you don't even need to mess with the fuses. I was shocked at how easy it ended up being for my 2014 models. I would guess the 2015 mazda 3 would be similar but then you start running into different seat harnesses for the 2016 model I think.Astray.. I was wondering how this went.

for the heater switches, is the wiring in the dash for these already? I guess I am hoping for a good explanation of what is needed and the best process to swap these out.
Late to the party but no connectors won’t be “under carpet”Hello everyone,
So my new mazda 2014 sedan came with cloth seats and I was very heavily considering replacing the seats with some of the OEM leather seats. My only problem with this is the driver seat is a power bucket seat while my current seat is just a manual bucket seat. Has anyone done this swap before? Is it something easy to do or am I gonna be fighting a lot to get the power seat properly installed by doing custom wiring and such? Any information on this would be very helpful!
Thank you!The wires were all the same color and in the same locations as well. For some reason this forum won't let me share pictures because of some dumb post count BS so here's some links to the them:
