Seat wiring question

I just got some sport seats to replace my old standard ones and the new seats have more wires than the old ones. Both seats are power recline with manual sliders.

The connectors on my old seats have three pins and look like this:





And the new ones have five pins and an extra plug beside the blue seat belt plug (which I haven't swapped over yet) and look like this:





What is this extra wiring for...heated seats or something? Can I use whatever these wires connect to, or do I need extra switches or controls in the car?

Thanks!
Mark

I'd have to verify the wiring schematic, but my guess would be seat heating.

That looks like the seat belt sensor harness. Although in my 98 its a green box not blue.

Oops, sorry code7 - I should have posted back when I got it figured out. It is the seat heater wiring. And, as it turns out, it's not really very difficult to add the wires and switches needed to make them work.
