WHIPS is passive--it's a specially-stressed metal plate in the seat that deforms in the event of a rear-end impact which absorbs the forces that causes whiplash. Now, SIPS won't work if the S70 had electronic side impact bags (there's a change in structure week somewhere--a friend with an early-production '99 S70 has pyrotechnical side impact bags, while my late-production '99 S70 has a wiring harness and no pyrotechnic igniter). Get a '98 seat if you want power functions--the '99s need to be on the CAN bus and the controller's been known to become ill-tempered if there's no CAN bus.jablackburn wrote:Sure can, have a look at this:
The WHIPS system will not work in your 97, though, but I doubt you plan on crashing anyway
