Question about 2005 Nissan Murano

1 Answer

The Lumbar support adjustment fails

2005 Nissan Murano FWD, with power driver's seat.  The seat adjustments work except for the lumbar adjustment...it will neither inflate nor deflate when the control switch is depressed.  I tried to check the fuses, but there are none labeled for the power seat.  I think there is a circuit breaker for the seat but it is not clearly marked, but the seat works except for the Lumbar support, so I don't think it is a fuse.  Now for the questions:
What fuse/circuit breaker controls the driver's side power seat??
2. What should I expect to be the problem with the lumbar adjustment function and how do I get to it?

I wonder if you dont have a bad switch. I had a similar problem on my car except that it was the heated seats that would not engage... the power seat buttons all worked just fine. I changed the switch and it fixed the problem...

Note: this was on a BMW not a Murano

Lumbar control does not work in 2001 Dodge Durango. The seat works fine otherwise


For the years around 2001 with those seats (00-03 I believe) they have a plastic lumbar adjuster in the back of the seat. I can't seem to find anyone who sells it even the dealer. All I could suggest is try and get a crappy used seat (perferably a passenger seat because they are used less) and swap it out or just get another drivers seat if you don't want to hassle with it. It's not that easy to change. I've tried to repair mine a few times. It kept failing. I'm going to try it again and this time move the stress point to a different location so this hopefully won't happen again.

Hi - I have a much loved 2004 SAAB 93 Aero sedan.


This has been happenning on my 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0 T also for about 2-3 months also. I have had no clues until today I learnt by accident that the lumbar support on my car's driver seat does not work anymore. Which means that there are broken strings/wires inside the seat and that move on braking and make clicking sound. I haven't checked my seat's lumbar support but will do soon.

Try your lumbar support adjustment and see if it is moving freely, that means it not adjusting the lumbar support. If that's the case, that may be the cause of the clicking/slight-movement of the seat.

Driver's seat stuck. Lumbard support works,


HI. There are only two causes for this particular issue. The most common will be a failed switch assembly. This should be located on the side of the drivers seat. This switch is responsible for transferring the movement commands to the actual motor/gear assembly, which is located on the rail structure under the seat in question. If your lumbar section is responding to commands, but the others fail, this will lead to a failed switch circuit. the entire switch board will need to be replaced, in this case.

Now, if you command the set to move forward, and all you hear is the motor running , but no movement, this will lead to a failed gear assembly. This will be the second cause of no forward/backwards movement. In this case, the entire motor/gear assembly will need to be replaced, due to the fact that the gears are not sold separately. The are shipped as a kit with the motor.


It is required that you order this type of replacement part directly from the dealership.



  • NOTE_ I have seen in most cases that the there was jam, due to pieces of the gear assembly breaking off, and jamming up the mechanism. in order to properly inspect for damage of this nature, it will be necessary to remove the seat.
