    thankyou for the feedback on my question. Is the problem fixable at home or will it need to go to a garage.? If so is it a big job and what would the approx cost be?

  • davala1 Jul 27, 2009

    One more thing, what would be the approx cost to get this fixed in a garage and how long would it take?

  • davala1 Aug 05, 2009

    thankyou all for your comments. The problem is now solved.

Davala1,
if u hv the right tools, then it can be done. Unscrew the 4 nuts underneath and the seat is detached. but be careful with all the plastic covers and also the SRS equipment fitted by the side. The costs are subjective depending on the workshop place u send. The parts are still easily accessible. If DIY, then ensure the alignment between right and left is adjusted evenly on refitting.

It is more than likely the limit switch in the seat motor assembly

960 is equipped with front electrically control seats. There are relays but the culprit is always the steel gear under the seat which will wear off. There are 4 rubber tubes underneath.

Passenger side seat stuck in recline 1996 328i bmw


This is either an electrical problem or the infamous twisted seat problem caused by the cables between the motors and reclining gear units of the power seat.
Check the connector under the front of the seat and make sure it has not been disconnected
listen to determine whether the motor at the front of the seat are turning when you try to move the seat (they are fairly quiet)
If the motor spins, then search internet for "bmw twisted seat"
good luck

Horn and power seats quit working. maxi-fuse extremely hot. pulled it out and re-inserted after it cooled down. fixed the problem temporarily (a day or so). swapped that maxi-fuse with the one above it...


which maxi fuse gets hot ? # fuse , plus amps The power seats uses a 30 amp circuit breaker ,not a fuse . The horn gets power from the same circuit breaker . . Sounds like something is drawing to much current. Do you know how to use a amp meter to test current flow . Disconnect componets till draw goes away ? How to use a wiring diagram to pin point areas in a circuit to test ?
Is there corrosion on the pins where the seat circuit breaker plugs into ? Reach under your seats an see if one of the seat motors is hot .

The left and the right power seat system consist of the following components:
• The seat switches
• The seat relay modules
• The 4 reversible motors:
- The front vertical motor
- The rear vertical motor
- The horizontal motor
- The recline motor
These 4 motors operate independently of each other.
When the entire seat switch is pushed to the FORWARD position, the forward input of the of the seat relay is grounded.
The seat relay module supplies battery positive voltage (B+) with a ground to the horizontal motor, in response to this input. In order to drive the seat forward, the motor runs until the switch is released.
The BACK position works similar to the FORWARD position with the exception that the voltage polarity supplied by the seat relay module is reversed causing the motor to run in the opposite direction. This action drives the seat backward.
These recline switches operate similar but independently:

The seat relay module could be bad , If you don't know how to do automotive electrical circuit testing it mite be a good idea for you to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.
Could have diagnostic trouble codes stored as well .
