Passenger seat died

I have a 2018 DSDP. Does anyone know where the fuse is to the passenger seat? I've done a battery disconnect and that didn't take care of the problem. I've looked in the power bay and didn't see anything saying seats. I looked under the seat, but can't find where it would be there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Renée

Not sure about your DS but in my Ventana it’s possible to turn the passenger seat 360* the wrong way and if this happens it strains the wiring harness and could easily disconnect something - like power. Might be worth checking if you haven’t already examined it.

Look inside the Freightliner fuse box located in the forward driver side compartment, fuse #12, a 30 amp fuse

The fuse for your seats is in the 1st compartment on the driver's side under the drivers window. It's going to be located on the circuit board with fuses for the chassis. My seats are controlled with a 30 AMP circuit breaker, not a fuse. If breaker (or fuse) is blown you can reset but best to find why it tripped. Have a good look at the wires under the seat, especially if you turned the seat while parked.

The fuse/breaker is in the front drivers side compartment. It is a 30 amp fuse, bottom left hand corner in photo. You may want to check all of your wiring under your seat as well. You may want to read this post ( link attached ) that I wrote back in July on what happen to me in my new LondonAire. I am not trying to scare you but look under your seat and make sure no wires are chafing on the frame of the seat.

That's a good idea. I'll check. Thank you.

Thanks everybody. Found it. Well, not really. Thanks Bill (NWIP) came by and showed me where it was located, I don't know if mine is different bc I have a Spartan Chassis, but it is a 25 amp mini fuse in the chassis fuse box as many of you mentioned. I'm good to go now.

Thanks again for all your help! 😊

As someone above mentioned, if you are blowing fuse, it’s best to find out why through diagnosis, rather than continuing to blow fuses, or worse, burning up wires.

Also this is interesting reading on fuses:

Thanks for forwarding the link. Will check wires under seat. It's the first time I've had a passenger and the seat did get turned a lot, so maybe something got loose.
