question re heated seat connectors

is it possible to connect passenger heated backrest power cord incorrectly ?

I just got all seats back from russell........Was some what rushed to reinstall. I reconnected passenger backrest (behind left speaker) first, then passenger seat, finally drivers seat..

While reconnecting power to drivers seat, it appeared you could "reverse the connector" ( brown to green, green to brown)..

Is it possible to reverse the passenger backrest power cord ? I got to confess, I was not paying too much attention, as I was trying to hold top case open, hold left speaker and connect backrest cord.

If someone can confirm connectors are "correct connect" only, it will save me from tearing speaker cover off again

thanks

IIRC, they are. The plastic connection will only go one way..

Re: question re heated seat connectors

Like the previous reply I too think that the connector is keyed so that you can only assemble it one way. Having said that, I don't think it would make much difference if you did reverse the connection since it is just a resistive load.
