Both seat adjustment switches do not work. Checked fuses and both are good, any ideas?

Welcome to The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

You missed our picnic. look for future events!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Welcome from Madrid...

+1 on the seat relay...
Hi and welcome from the UK Midlands! :)

I can't add anything to the suggestion that's already been made... hope you get it resolved quickly! :D
Welcome from central Florida. We just (November) got a 2001 SLK 320 (automatic) and the power seats weren't working either. As adrose mentioned, it was bad solders in the seat relay. Our son touched them up, and it works good as new. It is located under the dash just to the left of the steering column. A small black cube that can be pried open and repaired.

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!
Thank you for the info. Will be pulling relay out today to see if it is repairable.
Welcome from Washington, DC.
