1999/2000 mustang power seat wiring question

i have four wires to wire up the seat, a thick green, thin green, black and a brown/blue wire. i'm admittedly using the seat in a racing cockpit but the seat needs adjusting. any way to power it with 120vac and an ac - dc converter?

i could try a wheelchair battery if it's safe. please help me!

The larger green wire is power for the seat, the black is ground, the brown/light blue is for the seat belt warning. I don't know what the smaller green wire is. The power is 12V.

thank for the info. i guess thick green to the positive and black to negative on a motorcycle battery can work. hopefully it's the same amperage. if there's a way to use house current, that would be great! i know there's a way to get a ac to dc converter!

The seat motors will only work wit 12V DC current. What are you trying to do?

Do you have 12v at the larger green wire?
