The most common problem with these heated seats and all heated seats is the actual heater grid in the seat... it is basically like a heating pad that you have in your house except thinner and smaller, these grids usually will shot out causing the syptom that you stated the seat will seem to get really hot and then just quit working all together if you disconnect the connector for the heater grid and it has power and ground than the grid is bad the connector is usually a two pin connector under the seat.... What ever you do do not unplug any Yellow connectors as they are for the air bag system... If you need more information let me know i will be happy to help

The clock spring has gone bad. You will have to remove the steering wheel to gain access to the clock spring (used to be called the turn sig. switch) But if you are going to perform this repair make sure you dis-connect the battery before you began because you could set off the air bag in the steering wheel

Had the battery changed in 2007 nissan murano and now the chimes don't ring and the drivers doesn't automatically move back when opening the drivers door. How do I reset these?:


Disconnecting the battery erases stored memory,after you connect the battery put the key in the ignition cylinder and turn the driver door switch on(open) and off (closed), on (open),the entry,exist function then becomes complete, and the return operation can be operated,

My right mirror on 325 i 2005 doesn't work. When i change my seat position with the memory, the seats goes on but not the mirrors. I can adjust my left mirror but not the rigth one; it never move.


I would safely assume your right mirror may be inoperable period then by your statement you are leaving the switch for the mirrors in the middle during switching correct and during adjustment are switching to R/L mirror on the switch? Mirrors are on the same circuit so both should be operable. Have the mirror checked for operation before heading any further. I Think you will find during this its unplugged from its source of power or inoperable period and needs replaced. Remember to rate my solution and leave testimonial PS please purchase you a Owners Manual for your car you will thank me later.

Drivers seat 2000 outback


So here is a diagram of the seat circuitry for your car. Since every other function works except the forward/backward slide function, that leaves basically the forward/backward slide motor, the seat switch, and/or the wiring. If you can verify that the wiring under the seat is in good condition without obstructions, chaffed wires, and/or wires pulled too tight, then it's safe to say it's down to just the motor and/or the switch. Sometimes if the passengers front seat has the same switch, you can plug it in to the drivers' side connector and see what works and what doesn't. If the seat works fine with the other switch, then that's all it needs, if not then it will need a motor. If the other seat doesn't have a switch then you can find them at wrecking yards, or just supply power and ground to the motor in question to see if it works. If it does, then you know you kneed a switch and if not then a motor.
I hope this info helps!~subyguru~

Seat will not move forward or backward...


if motor seemed to slowly get worse over time then there is a great chance that the motor is gone. You will have to unplug the motor and test for power at the motors connector. if the power is good when switch is activated then the motor is dead, but if no power is found then you either have a bad switch or connector or a wiring harness problem. It will not be the fuses since the driver and passenger seats are the same. also one more thing to check is if your vehicle has memory seats then if no power is found at motor, this memory module mounted to seat could be the problem..
