12V Power to headrests
#1
Hi all

I have a little project to add some headrest DVD players and a new head unit to my 2014 bingo.

About the DVD players, I have a couple of questions, before I go hacking away!

Firstly, is there likely to be anything under the front seats that I can splice a 12v socket on to? If not has anyone done this before? Where would be best to take it from?

Also what's the best way to take the seat cover off to get into the seat to thread wires
Etc? Is there a "knack"?

The kids will be pleased if I get this done!

Cheers

COOL thanks, mine has the sensors in the seat too so I might be in luck! I'll check it out!

Hey doofer, finally had a chance to look. Under each seat there is a green connector with 3 wires, and a black with two.

Looking at the thickness of the cables it seems the green one is for the weight sensors. But under the drivers seat the black one goes to the seat belt clip, under the passenger seat it goes nowhere. Do you think that one is it? What did yours look like?

The cable going to the seatbelt clip will almost certainly be your seat belt pre tensioner. I wouldn't bugger about with that unless you fancy chancing your airbag going off.

Thanks both, I think I'll just wire it from the battery then, wouldn't want to risk that!

Can you splice in from the 12v socket?

Good idea, the one in the boot may be easiest
