Is it possible a rodent has eaten through some of the wires?
or could be that the motors that control the seat and the top drew moisture and rusted. also, I would check the fuses for the malfunctioning items. as for the radio code, you'll probably have to contact the manufacturer

"have spark at coil down to dizzy but no spark at plugs"
this can mean only 2 things.
1: spark wires are dead. all 4, kinda hard to believe huh?
2: the dizzy is way off time. so time the dizzy and now spark
lands on each wire term.
if not a dizzy engine, post exact version of engine and country.

Driver seat and steering wont adjust on my 95 740il

here's what you have to do:
#1. make sure the fuse to the seat adjustment is not blown, its usually a 10 or 15amp fuse.
#2. unscrew the cover to the controls on the driver's seat and make sure the harness is not loose or
broken, if the harness fails to attach to the control board correctly the steering wheel and the
seat adjustment will not work, this harness tends to come loose and even brake over time due to
the constant movement when you get in and out of your car.
I hope this solves your problem.

Seat belt locked in place

There is a recall on this problem, so best thing to do is go to the GM dealer and have the seat belt replaced for free under the recall notice. Good luck and hope this helps.

Heated and cooled seats quit working. won't work on either driver's or passanger's seats. checked the fuses and relays and they are all ok. what's wrong?

Remove fuses 10 and 11 in the underhood junction box. Leave out for 5 minutes then reinstall. If the seats start working your Zephyrs dual climate control seat module will need replaced.

My 89 Legend coupe 2.7 wont start

1st- find the short. If the previous owner said there is a short under the seat , look for it and repair it.
2nd -after repair check your charging system and battery to make sure its up to specs.

Note: I gather the under seat wiring is for seat control, maybe you could unplug it and see if the battery and alternater work ok. If it does and you can't repair wiring perhaps you can get a replacement wiring harness for that section( seat control?)

Good luck
