Jay,

You didn't state what year your Alpine is, but on our 2000 the fuse is on the passenger side behind the front cap, on the firewall, near the windshield washer bottle. It is a single wire with a push in fuse.

IIRC it is a 10 amp fuse, but may only supply power to the passenger seat-footrest.

Jay, my friend Ron has a 2001 and as I recall we found an inline fuse for the seat way back in the battery compartment. I think it was connected to one of the house batteries.

Thumbs up

Cajunjohn, you where correct, the fuse was an inline 10 amp fuse located inside the firewall where the fuse panels where. Problem was not the fuse thought, followed the wires back to where the driver seat wires are tied into the passenger seat and found the ground wire was corroded from rubbing on the frame where all the wires come through the frame from the passenger wheel well. Repaired the ground wire and all is well. Thank you all. Jay.

Glad you found it! What a detective you have to be to own one of these things- that, and/or (as it's been referred to previously) a big, sweaty wad of money!
