Ok been hunting this problem for a while since i bought my 2003 HSE last year.
It was slowly dying on me.
Seat adjustment would work for half a second and adjusting the seat bit by bit tapping the switches.
Steering column almost the same, but last month just before it died completely, tapping the controls for the column would only move it down, even when i puched
the handle up for like 20 times.
Now i have the steeringwheel in a verry uncomfortable full down position, but luckily the seat is now stuck in my best position.
I've already did quite some research here, first checked the fuses but their al ok. Checked out the spindle for the column adjustment described in another
thread but looks like the nylon lock nut is just fine. Also managed to get the seat adjustment panel out and check the connections. wich seemed fine, no wear.
sprayed them with electrical spray and prayed when i put it back but still no go....
Now my last guess is that since it is all in sync going out, and even the lock is acting up on the drivers door, like its getting less power than it needs to get the actuator to push the lock.
could it be a grounding issue and where to look?? if i move the controls either on the seat or the column they all still give a slight click but don't get it to move anymore....
any guesses on where to look for grounding issues / connection issues other than the seat control switch panel??
Thanks for reading!
