Seat won’t go back

Post by Cream 280SE » Wed 01 Aug, 2018 6:42 pm

Hello all

Today I went to adjust my drivers seat back, using the switch on the door.
I pushed the switch back to move the seat back, BUT, the seat went forward!!

I then pushed the switch to move the seat forward, and that worked normally.

Lucky the memory switches worked and it went back.

Any suggestions?

Dead switch, as you have already worked out the motors and cables work fine. The older switch you could pull them apart and clean up the contacts, I doubt you could do this with these ones as they also have the controller model in them.
