Hello all:

I have alread searched for some help to no avail. I am not what anyone
could possiply call computer literate, so I probably didn't do it right.

I loaned my SLk 280 to a friend for a parade, when I got it back the
driver side seat will no longer move forward nor back. all other functions
are working normally. I don't feel that the lady did anything to cause
the problem, but I wonder if anyone has any ideas. Tomorrow I plan to
hunt for fuzes associated with driver side power seat I also hope to find
some sort of electrical print. I know it couldn't be so easy as to have a
fuse for just the forward and reverse, but I can hope. If anyone has
an Idea, it would be greatly appreciated.

Randy

Hope no one sat on your parcel shelf also or knee'd your bottom seat so heaters don't work also

So seat back goes forward n back (recline/lean forward) but seat base does not?

Eddy says....maybe they 'memorized it in that position'

try this

there are at least 2 motors under there and one might have got 'fried'.

Check the fuses - passenger side fuse compartment on the end of the dash (there is a black plastic cover to remove at the end of the dashboard, only accessible with the door open)

The folded paper fuse chart should be in there too - there's a slot for it above the fuses

Thanks everyone for the help. This is a great site, and you fellows saved me a lot of misery trying to locate everything.

I learned a good lesson, I hope it doesn't turn out to be an expensive one.
I found something under the rear part of the seat that shouldn't have been
there. I and riders will be more careful henceforth.

Fuse good when I managed to get down and
listen carefully, I can hear a relay picking up but my hearing isn't very good
and I can't tell exactly where the click is located. It appears to be just under
the dash trim below the steering wheel. I will as one of my sons to see if
they can hear and chase it down. When I was younger I could twist around
and find stuff like this, but not any longer. I can't hear the motor attempt
to run, so I am in high hopes the relay coil is picking up, but the contacts
are either tarnished, burned or just simply not making contact. Probably not
but doesn't hurt to hope.
