Front passenger seat.

Lost power to the passenger seat. None of the controls work. Drivers seat is fine. Probably a fuse. Are the seats on separate fuses? If they are on the same fuse any ideas where to start and what to check? Thanks

Also check the wiring underneath the seat to ensure wires were not pulled apart while moving chairs. I had this happen to me.

We had a problem the same as yours. First the passenger seat then the drivers. As the previous poster mentioned, check your wiring. We discovered that when you turn the seats around, at least for us, the back of the seat has to go to the wall to be turned. I think that a lot of times people tried to do it the opposite way and the wires became loose. I ended up rewiring both seats to make sure they had enough wire to turn the seats properly. Before adding the additional wiring, I put on the shrink tube so once I did the repair put a hair dryer on the shrink tube to give it a "cleaned up look".

Fuses are located in driver side electrical bay, below drivers side window in the black box mounted on the wall.

Just had time to go look at the seat. I got lucky. Grandson has spun the seat the wrong way and pulled the wires out of connection. Easy fix for once. Lol
