I have a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica and neither one of the power front seats will move. I have checked all seat fuses under the hood and all looked good.

Expert: sprinkles08 replied 7 years ago. Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
There are a number of things that can cause this and there is a service bulletin that goes over diagnosing and repairing them, but the most common problem would be that the memory heated seat and mirror module has electronically locked up or failed. This module controls memory and all seat functions and is located on the bottom of the driver's seat pan. Most likely your module will need to be replaced and a ground wire added that goes from the module to the seat frame.
Try disconnecting the battery or disconnect the module to see if it will come back to life. If not then it is possible to move the seat with a couple jumper wires. The easiest thing to do would be to unplug the connectors at the module and jump the motor right there. You would need the light green/light blue and the light green/orange wire. Jump one to positive and one to ground and the seat will move. If it moves in the opposite direction you want it to go just reverse your jumper wires and the seat will move in the opposite direction.

Drivers side seat quit working and the seat heat's not working either. Passenger side works fine, fuse looks good, any suggestions?

if you already checked the fuses and found them to be good then you may now want to check the connectors under the seat. You will need a probe light to so this. The probe light will light up if you have power coming into the (+) terminal end. Watch this video to learn how to use a probe light tester.

Wires touched on lights now no start

you will need to search out for main fuse and replace it , most bikes fuses are located under seat nearby the battery .
a product called liquid electrical tape is something I use to coat all the electric connections on my bike , I could even ride it in rain if needed and have no shortage problems then
helps with vibration loosing up things as well ,keeps all the connectors tight !

Need help with where to go next on repairing a 1983 Toyota 2.2 4x4. Teenager needed a jump and his less than suave friend crossed the jumper cables. The alternator and voltage regulator were replaced. ...

first check all fuses... under dash and under-hood. replace as necessary. I assume you replaced the battery already too. take a voltage meter and test across the battery with the truck off. you should read close to 12vdc (+/- 1vdc). if around 9-10vdc or worse, you need to find what is pulling it down. keep the voltmeter on the battery as you pull different fuses. when the voltage jumps up to normal, the circuit on the fuse you just pulled is your culprit. from there, you need to start tracing out by hand - or leave the fuse out and that circuit won't be able to drain your battery.

Main 30 amp fuse keeps blowing when i plug the 4 wire fuse top back on after replacing 30 amp fuse. any suggestions

Hi, Anonymous before diagnosing your blown fuse issue, check the bottom of your seat, if it's metal and comes in close proximity to the positive battery post you need to take the necessary steps to ensure there is no contact (electrical tape, thick rubber insulation, hammer a dent in the seat bottom etc.) You are going to need a wiring diagram from your service manual, a test light, an ohmmeter and plenty of extra fuses.
If you turn on your ignition switch and immediately blow a fuse you have a hard/dead short and is usually easy to find. With a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder start stabbing the wire/s that leads away from the fuse holder and towards the ignition switch, you test light will illuminate validating the short. When the test light fails to illuminate you have passed the short and need to back up until the test light illuminates, then look in the immediate area for the short.
If you driving down the road for 30 minutes or 15 miles and blow a fuse you have soft/flying short and may take some time and patience to find.
If the main fuse/circuit breaker constantly blows/trips while riding you probably have a faulty battery terminal connection. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary. Any other fuses that constantly keep blowing while riding are usually caused by a loose or corroded ground wire in the circuit, which means you have to check, inspect, test each and everyone with an ohm meter set on a low ohm scale 100 ohms or less . Simply touch one lead to the ground source and the other lead to the battery negative terminal, a reading of zero indicates a clean solid ground. Any number reading or infinity indicates a poor ground and needs to be repaired. Poor or weak grounds require excessive additional amperage to complete the circuit which in turn blows the small amperage fuse.

It is most likely caused by faulty wiring between the main loom and ccm that is located in the left hand side foot well under/in front of the front seat. If you remove the seat and lift the carpet you will find at least three sets of wires (black/red, blue/grey, and yellow/green) that are joined there - or at least meant to be joined there. You need to get all of the wires connected back up again (connect all of the same coloured wires together). If the area is wet then you will need to check the drainage channels in the area under the main battery, and possibly sunroof drainage pipes (if fitted), and the drain from the heater/cooler. You should also check the ccm to ensure there is no damage to the circuit board therein. Consult a qualified auto-electrician if in any doubt. The fault seems to cover all passat-based cars prior to 2010 and after 97 (my '97 passat and '02 skoda superb both had problems here).

I accidentally short-circuited a red wire (+12 Volt) coming from the ignition to the chassis of the car, and now the car doesn't start. Did i blow a fuse? which fuse should i replace if so? I've already...

It's very possible that you have blown the main fuse. It should be located under the hood near the battery. Check that fuse and replace if needed. If that doesn't fix the problem, you may have shorted the computer itself. That is a considerably larger expense. Hope this helps, good luck!

Car won't even turn over

Sounds like either:-
1) a loose or poor connection on the main +12V supply feed, (check fusible link or in line 'Maxi' fuse connections to main fuse panel.
2) a loose or poor ground connection between the battery and chassis.
Check all ground bus's for corrosion or looseness.

My 2006 gmc yukon xl drivers seat will not move nor the heated seats on either the drivers or passanger seat. I tried the fuses and that is not it. I tried reseting the computers by unhooking the batterie...

Under the drivers seat at the rear is a black plastic cover. Remove the cover , it is over the main harness to the seat. Unplug the seat harness and inspect the connection. I see alot of these get knocked loose or get corroded. Good Luck.
