Re: pwr seat fuse blowing

Good troubleshooting technique there disconnecting the defroster and seat. I'd suspect you have a problem at the switch or a pinched wire somewhere.

What does it take to blow the fuse with those two loads disconnected - the seat adjusters I presume?

Keep up with the disconnecting of things. Look under the sill plates / carpet for wire nicks. But above all, use a test lamp in place of that fuse that keeps popping. You should be able to tell from the brightness of it if your load is shorted or not - especially when the load is disconnected.

Re: pwr seat fuse blowing

thanks for the reply, I dont think it is a switch as I have also disconnected the defrost switch and still blows fuse.I think you may be right about nicked wire,I think i'll pull seat out and carpet and go from there. The fuse blows as soon as you put it in with everything disconnected.
