Check fuse first. if not the problem take the cover off of the driver side seat adjustment controls and insure that the relay is seated securely. Just fixed my 2001 740il about 5 minutes ago.

Hood release not visable on left side of steering column.Can't find the hood release.


If it is a interior release, and realizing I don't have information of what kind of car you have, it would most likely be up under dash area on drivers side left of steering wheel, or would be drivers side left on lower part of drivers seat by door jam, or could be a button innglove box. That's my guesses with out car info. Let me know.

Driver side seat will not adjust and the steering wheel adjust will not work.


If adjustment is electric check fuses in fuse box, if it is mechanic you need to take apart steering and seat, in this case is better to go to a garage.

SRS light remains on after starting (engine) Why?


When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.

Driver power seat adjustment and steering tilt not


It would appear that the relay is misfunctioning. Try swapping one from nearby and when your car won't start but your seats operate then you'll know what to do. THanks, Dana

1998 528i Driver seat adjustment & steering wheel adjustment inop. Fuses 13 & 21 are good. Any suggestions? Thank you.


I had that problem. I have a 1997 528i, the plug on the side of the drivers seat under the plastic panel came unplugged. I had to just simply plug it back in, steering wheel adjusted and seat moved too. Maybe this is your problem too.

Horn not working due to clock spring


The part is still available from GM. It is part # 94857236.

You must be careful when replacing the clock spring as it controls the SRS system.
You will need to remove the steering wheel airbag and and the steering wheel itself.

Important: Perform this procedure in order to prevent deployment of the air bags from the reserve energy supply power.

  1. Remove the CIG and IGN Fuses from the junction block (1), which is located near the base of the steering column.
  2. Remove the lower steering column trim cover.
  3. Turn the steering wheel so that the vehicle's wheels are pointing straight ahead.
  4. Remove the key from the ignition switch
  5. Release the inflatable restraint steering wheel module coil connector locking mechanism.
  6. Disconnect the inflatable restraint steering wheel module coil connector C3
  7. Remove the Instrument Panel (IP) compartment (2)
  8. Release then unlock the IP module connector (1).
  9. Disconnect the IP module pigtail.
  10. Release and unlock the driver and passenger seat module connectors.
  11. Disconnect the driver and passenger seat modules.42de416.gif0276398.gif6983629.gife094e58.gif

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.

How to fix the tilt steering.. won't go down even when you push the auto button. My heated seats ain't workin either..(driver & passenger seat)


Most often, the stuck steering wheel is a result of a faulty 'tilt relay switch.' If you attempt to use the tilt switch and you can hear a clicking/whirring noise, then its your relay switch, if not, it may be the motor that is broken.

Fix lights in steering wheel - 04 DeVille


Steering wheel lights do not have bulbs you can change. The switch is a sealed asembly with an integral light. Each one costs around $110 at the dealership.

Heated seats have wires inside a fabric cover located betwwen the outside seat skin and the inner foam. Over time, they burn out. You can buy replacements from the dealer and have either them or an upholstery shop install them.
