Power driver seat does not have power

My driver seat stops moving. Checked the switch block on the side of the seat, found no power!

Looked up the schematics in chassis and coach manuals, found no mention of the seat electrical! Does anyone know where the fuse(s) for that seat could be?

TIA!

Could you move the seat with the ignition off? If not, it gives a hint that the power comes from the chassis fuse panel. I'd start looking at that location. See if you have a supplemental fuse panel under the dash that fuses the steps, map lights, etc.

Had the exact same problem after I picked up my coach from having it serviced. After some trouble shooting I noticed everything else wasn't working.

They had hit the salesman switch by the entrance door which I had taped over years ago as every time you hit it you have to reset the microwave, etc.

Turned the salesman switch back on and everything worked including my seats

That's when I learned my power seats work off the house batteries and NOT the engine battery on my 2004 Monaco La Palma.

On CC's, the power to seats is on full time. The passenger is till moving even ignition is off. I have looked at the chassis fuse box as well as ignition fuse box under the dash towards left, none of them labelled for seats. There is an aux fuse but it's not blown.

Mine doesn't have a salesman switch. think none of CC's has a salesman switch.

You don't have a battery disconnect switch? Some call it a salesman switch. Since you say the seat isn't controlled by the ignition switch, I'd next look in the house fuse panel. Does the passenger seat still work? If it does, that would indicate two fuses, one for each seat.

I am pretty sure our power seat fuse is in the RR bay where the inverter is located. The two front seats on our '97 are powered on all the time and I short circuited it when pulling the seat out one time, a long time ago.


Your slightly newer model might be located in a different place though.




IMO the term salesman's switch is used by greenhorns only.

I rotated my passenger seat one time and pulled the connector loose under the seat.

Might want to check the wires are still connected?

My drivers side stopped working but passanger side was still working.
Put the passanger switch in the drivers seat and worked. Went on eBay and picked up a used one. Think it was from a Lincoln

There is a fuse in fuse box in RR bay, but for both power seats. It's good, as known the passenger seat was working fine.

I had also checked the bay under the driver seat. All the wires from there were bundled tightly, no chance of failure.

Funny thing though, I came to think, it had to be on the wires inside the loom. Guess what, I found it! CC used blade connectors for positive and negative wires and tucked inside the grey loom! The positive blade was pulled out, I believe when I removed the seat for flooring recently it was accidentally pulled!

Phew! Thanks everyone!

Glad to hear you got it fixed.

Blade connectors inside a wire loom....Hmmm that's a good one, you're lucky you found it.

I've repaired electronic equipment all my life and never saw a blade connector in a wire loom. Learn something new every day.

Itís actually a decorative cover over the wires. Mine is same color and material as my seat. Blade connectors are there to allow seat to be removed.

Iíve pulled mine apart simply rotating the passenger seat. The guy on the wire cutting duty that day was probably bonused on how much wire he still had left at the end of the day ..........
