Hello and good evening, John just dropped me a line to see if I could help. I can't find a 60/40 seat listed, only bucket seats. I can send you the procedure for the buckets and the anchor locations will be close enough to work. Would you like those?

 

Your JA Expert,

Ivan

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ivan, I'm pretty sure they are called 60/40 seats the one found on most all full size Sedan Cadillac"s for many years. I had the same type on my 97 and 99. This 2002 model has many of the controls and motors under seat I also believe a module for the seat belts is their also.
Expert:  Ivan replied 3 years ago.

I know exactly the style you are referring to. I am going to send you the info for the bucket seats. The anchor points will be the same as on the 60/40 seat. The rails sit in the same spot as the buckets, so they should allow you to access and unbolt the seat. For whatever the reason, the 60/40 option does not show up with repair info in my system. This happens sometimes, but I think this will help you.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

could you send me the info for disenabling and enabling the SIR or would disconnecting the Battery do it.

Expert:  Ivan replied 3 years ago.

Try not to disconnect the battery. Many unforeseen issues arise from that, so try to avoid it at all costs. Below is the procedure to disable the SIR system. You should be able to unbolt the seats and relocate them without disabling the bags if you don't disconnect the connectors or stress the wiring harnesses. Here is the complete procedure though.

 

Disabling the SIR System

 


 

  1. Turn the steering wheel so that the vehicle's wheels are pointing straight ahead.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  3. Remove the key from the ignition switch.

IMPORTANT: With the SIR fuse removed and the ignition switch in the ON position, the AIR BAG warning lamp illuminates. This is normal operation, and does not indicate an SIR system malfunction.

  1. Remove the rear seat.
  2. Remove the SIR fuse from the rear fuse block.

 


 

  1. Remove the driver sound insulator.
  2. Remove the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) (1) from the driver yellow connector (3) located next to steering column (2).
  3. Disconnect the driver frontal air bag yellow connector (4) from the vehicle harness yellow connector (3).

 


 

  1. Remove the passenger sound insulator.
  2. Remove the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) (4) from the passenger yellow connector (1) located above the passenger sound insulator.
  3. Disconnect the passenger (IP) frontal air bag yellow connector (2) from the vehicle harness yellow connector (1).

 


 

  1. Remove both Connector Position Assurance (CPA) locks (3) from the driver side (seat) air bag and pretensioner yellow connector (1) located under the driver seat.
  2. Disconnect the driver side air bag and pretensioner yellow connector (2) from the vehicle harness yellow connector (1).
  3. Remove both Connector Position Assurance (CPA) locks (3) from the passenger side (seat) air bag and pretensioner yellow connector (1) located under the passenger seat.
  4. Disconnect the passenger side air bag and pretensioner yellow connector (2) from the vehicle harness yellow connector (1).

IMPORTANT: The above procedures will disable the SIR system. If vehicle is equipped with optional Rear Air Bags (AW9) the following steps must be done, to completely disable the SIR system.


 

  1. Remove the rear seat back.
  2. Remove the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) from the passenger rear side air bag yellow connector (3).
  3. Disconnect the passenger rear side air bag yellow connector (3) from the vehicle harness yellow connector (2).
  4. Remove the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) from the driver rear side air bag yellow connector (3).
  5. Disconnect the driver rear side air bag yellow connector (3) from the vehicle harness yellow connector (2)..
