    Have you had any work done to this just before any of these items stopped working?

    Also could you tell me is it the heating in the seat or movement of the seat that is not working.
    Same with the mirror, and is it the interior or outside mirrors that are not working.

    And do you mean that the steering wheel is locked and you can't move it.

    Let me know

    everything was working fine. seat heaters work is just the electric seats both of the seats you cant adjust them and same thing with the outside mirror. the steering wheel is also electric it has switch to adjust it in or out and up and down . its weird everything was working fine no work has been done
    . i figure a fuse or a relay since they must all be the same circuit. thanks let me know what you think

    From what I can make out the Base control module has got a bad feed back from 1 of the circuits which has caused it to switch off.

    Unfortunately the Mercedes dealers are the only ones which are capable of reprogramming this to get it too operate all the circuits that have stopped operating.

    You will need to take it to your nearest Mercedes Dealer and they will get this sorted for you.

Fuses control multiple systems.Since you described something to that effect,did you check your fuse.If you have the owner's manual,that will tell what fuse controls what systems.Before you or I can say that would be the fix I have 1 question.What do you mean by the wheel doesn't work?The steering wheel or what?If it is the steering wheel,would you please describe it better?Such as it's locked,won't turn,or whatever the situation is.You either have to join owners online at the link I am providing,or a dealer will tell you for free normally to find fuse box information.Please let me know so I can get you back on the road.
Good luck! Greg

Ford f150 driver side power seat mirrors heated seat and 4 wheel drive not working


This is a very common failure, depending on the year of your truck. Check the fuse panel under the hood VERY CLOSELY and make sure there is no corrosion AT ALL, and that each and every fuse/relay is seated nice and tight and in the correct spot. Pay close attention to fuse #23 and the surrounding areas as that is usually part of the problem. Further more, the wiring up to this panel needs to be traced back, and i believe that there's a loom that goes through the firewall and can be exposed/rubbed/chaffed/ in the driver side wheel well, especially if there is aftermarket or bigger wheels installed. finally, any malfunction indicator lights? any fault codes? how long has this been happening? and has it continued to get worse. Please Advise, we are here to help.
Regards,
-Tim

2002 RX 300 Power mirrors do not work (both sides) with dashboard control. Looked for fuse "power mirror" but none shown. Is this mirror control tapped off of another circuit? Would you know...


That accessory will probably probably be grouped with other accessories on one fuse. So it will not be the label. Check visually for the blown fuse. There will probably be other accessories that don't work as well, such as the seats or some minor power driven device. Visually you can see if a fuse is blown
A good flashlight helps when looking, if the fuse box is in a tight location.
Best,
Mark

My side mirros dont work


The exterior mirrors:
  • are controlled by power controls on the LH front door trim panel.
  • are of a foldaway design.
  • may contain turn signal indicators.
  • may be heated when the heated back window glass is activated.
  • may have a programmable recall memory option.
Driver Seat Module
The power driver seat and power exterior mirrors are controlled by the driver seat module (DSM) only when the vehicle is equipped with the programmable/recall memory option.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Power Exterior Mirror Operation
The power exterior mirrors are controlled by the DSM and are operational all the time, whether the ignition switch is on or off. Using the power exterior mirror switch, the driver can adjust the driver and passenger exterior mirrors four ways.

  • Interior mirror
  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse
  • Circuitry
  • Exterior mirror control switch
  • Exterior mirror motor
  • Interior mirror
  • Driver seat module (DSM)
  • Memory set switch

  1. If the vehicle is equipped with memory exterior mirrors and the concern remains after the inspection, connect the diagnostic tool to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel. Select the vehicle to be tested from the diagnostic tool menu.
    • Check to make sure the program card is correctly installed.
    • Check the connections to the vehicle.
    • Check the ignition switch position.
