I recently purchased two '06 750Li's from an auction. Originally they were identical with the option packages except one has the comfort heat/ac rear reclining seats option. The one I'm keeping is in very good condition but does not have the reclining rear seats. The other, according to the auction house, apparently hit a semi going 120+ and was then was rear ended by another semi. The rear seating area is the only thing not destroyed on this car, I only bought it because they were basically giving it away ($150) and once I take the rear seats and rear entertainment system out is really only good for scrap. My question is, is this possible, without gutting the electrical system of the good one, to replace the original seats with comfort rear reclining rear seats?

What modules need to be coded after doing this retrofit? Everything works but my airbag light is on.

It probably is related with rear seat satellite SSD. Play with coding on rear side airbags or buckles there. My airbag yellow lamp was lit because my seat belt buckles don't have the wires connected to them. So, I coded in SSD them not active.

Wiring loom is rather big, but actually schematically it is not so complicated. You can really leave the good wiring in place, and wire new wiring for rear seats in addition.
There are two modules for each side, which need power supply, and connection to PT-CAN (the blue amd blue/red wire). However, SSD at the rear is connected to each side seat occupancy sensors. So You have to lead some blue wires to SSD, and that's actually all.
It also depends if your seats are from RHD or LHD. There is a hardware coding for each module. I insta***316;ed an RHD seats on my LHD, and my opposite seats responded to regulations.

PS. Please note that here is a rear blocking button on the driver's door. Vibellito knows, it took for me two days solving the problem that my seats were not responding to the adjustment buttons...

Sorry for the mess, it is SSH, not SSD. I reinstalled my daughter's computer, and probably SSD hard drive has stuck in my head.
And it is friday night...

I wish there was an easy solution to put those seats in an old classic car :yikes:
I***8217;ve got them in and all the options work. But my seat belt and airbag light will not go off. I***8217;m going to add $460 and $496 to the VO and hope this works. But I only know of one module that needs to be coded. Hopefully someone will chime in and let me know what other modules need to be coded

I don't think that changing the VO itself will solve it. Haven't tried, but I guess that coding a module alone would change the necessary setting even without the VO. VO is crucial for default coding, however, not always it solves all the issues. Similarly, my rear airbag light was coded off only by playing with coding options in the SSH. It was once I replaced the SSH module, even before when my rear seats were the standard ones. And then it happened again with the rear seats retrofit. Then I knew what to do, and it was solved again...
Have You tried to code off the buckles in SSH? Don't remember exact name of the option, but it was quite understandable by using NCS Dummy.
If You wish I can turn on the computer and look the exact names...

I've heard that rear seats from e65 are very popylar in Ukraine. Many junkyards are shipping out the seats out to Ujraine to install in boats and small yachts. Don't know how they solve CAN messaging, otherwise there is only supply issue, and rear safery system to integrate into.

I did the FA write of the $460 to the CAS and the LMA, coded the SSH, cleared the code And the airbag light went off.

That's my dilemma . If I knew how they were getting them to
function , I would have a set installed in my Cadillac ...

Once I thought about replicating an e70 main modules in parallel with my e65 electronics system. So that e70 car system works in parallel. I thought that the JBBE (a main gateway module on e70 as the SGM on e65) could be connected to power supply and co***326;ected to my car's can system, so that I could connect other e70 modules to work on my e65. Maybe that woukd require also a CAN filter, or something in addition for the JBE to fire up. Of course for programming possibilities I probabky would have to add also additional OBD port directly to the JBBE...
With that said above I think that it is possible to add some modules in addition to rear seat modules which could interpret the CAN messages from the adjustment buttons to the rear seat modules. Maybe that is the case also for the boats, that they just make a replica of an e65 SGM, and rear seats with their modules, which allows powering the rear seats' system.
Haven't done that anyway, so this stays just as unrealized thought.
