Blown fuse fuse for door locks, and power seats in 1997 bravada

    20A Circuit Breaker keeps tripping off. Door locks, power seats and keyfob won't work. The other morning I was able to use a 30a fuse in place of the Circuit breaker to get the seats adjusted. But once I started the vehicle (or just turned on the ignition) the system blew the fuse. System seems to stay energized for a while. Just trying a new fuse will get you sparks and a new blown fuse. Once the circuit breaker resets and you reinsert it, if the system still has power to it, you'll here a couple clicks and the breaker trips again. Also if you leave the breaker in after a while you can't touch it, it gets really hot.

I had the same problem and I was talking to a neighbor, and he had a 97 S10 and he said he had the same problem and it was the motor for the power seats (some type of a short in the motor). best idea is move the seats the way you want them and go under the seats and unplug the power seat motor... it fix my neighbors and it fixed mine.

1979 lincoln mark v power seats and power door locks dont work


Power accessories in those days were usually protected by a circuit breaker instead of a fuse.
If the seat control switch is in the door, the problem could be in the harness coming into the door.

I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada...Yesterday all of a sudden my passenger's side window stop working(up and down)...the power lock and the heated seat all stop working on my passenger's side...?


If you have an Owners manual, try looking for a fuse panel diagram. Your could have a bad connection inside the doorpanel which shorted the fuse. The seat drive motor must be wired to a separate circuit coming from the floorboard and its okay.
The circuits are wired independently to protect the lighter wires from the heavy drain of the seat motor. If you had the heated seat function working on the seat at the same time as adjusting the seat motor it would be too much for a single circuit, so they gave you two circuits.

If you are going to work on the door panel, disconnct the NEG battery cable so you won't short out something taking it apart.

Another Repair place you might try is a Glass Replacement shop. They install the inner workings of window tracks daily and remove the door panels to do it. They would be able to find your wires, test your window motor, and get you on your way quickly.

Unlike a Dealership, they have a high turnover of glass installations daily. Some even come to your house to repair your problem. Your car would be repaired more quickly with these services.

2002 Oldsmobile Bravada power seat and heated seat is not working. (Passenger side)


Either have broken wires leading to the heated seat and the power seat controls, or the heated seat element is burnt out (but not likely).

Check for blown fuses for the system, but if one side or the other is not working, it's more likely a wire broke somewhere, in this case, on the passenger side.

I have a 2000 mercury mountaineer. Power door locks and power seats not working. No manual. What could be the problem? a fuse?


Fuses would be the first suspect. Look for a small bread-loaf size box that contains all the fuses and relays. If a new fuse pops as soon as a seat or lock is operated, then look for a stuck motor for the seat or a shorted solenoid for a lock that was just operated. If it pops as soon as replaced, then suspect a wiring short.

1997 moutaineer Non functioning power windows, sunroof, door locks and power seats. What's the cause?


Check the fuse under the hood top right corner fuse box Third fuse down on the left side It is a 30 but in older Mercury Mountaineers the wires come slightly corroded and tend to not transfer enough power. So in conclusion either A: the fuse is blown or B: Boost it up to a 50 fuse which is what I had to do

Seat belt chime not working


I bet its a fuse. Look under your drivers side belly pan for a fuse box door. Pull the door open/off and look at the fuse diagram to see which one might be related to the seat belt and autol ock. Cross reference it and check the fuse to see if it isn't blown. If you dont see anything that relates to it or dont find any blown fuses, check the engine bay as often cars feature a second fuse box. Check that one for blown fuses as well. This is a very easy thing to do yourself, your randma could do it.
