2001 ranger With Power seats..hook up ??

So ive got the seats in and need to power them up.... which fuse do I hook them up too and how can i ground them. Is it okay just to ground the seat to a bolt holding them to the floor?
thanks

I am not sure what fuse is for the Seats but look it up in your manual should say.
Check for power at the fuse point.
Then see where the wiring goes from the back of the fuse panel.
If the Panel is fused properly then run the wires but if not or you can’t determine the best hook up do the battery thing.
(Note: If the power side is there but not the load side of the fuse, you can get connectors from another Panel to work with your and there you have it).

For the battery setup:
Run a fused (15A or 20A) 12 gauge wire from the battery to one seat then to the other.
Grounds can be done as you stated but while you are doing it run the ground to the battery too.
