Passenger Seat Power

I just re-installed my driver and passenger seats after having the flooring replaced. I reconnected power to driver seat and all is fine. However, the passenger seat has no power. With a meter, I checked the driver seat (good) then the passenger seat (no power). I checked the ground and power across both seats to verify 1.) ground on passenger (while checking power on driver) is good 2.) power on passenger (using ground from driver) not good. I checked for a fuse, looked in the manual...can't find anything. I haven't crawled under yet to check the wire run, but can't imagine something happened just by removing and reinstalling the seat.

Does anyone know if there is a fuse specifically for the power seats? Hopefully one for each seat. Any other suggestions are welcome as well.

PS: DW says no trip for her until this is fixed!

Thanks

Hi Roscott,
On my Spartan chassis the passenger seat fuse (30 AMP) is located with all the other automotive fuses. This is in the basement in front of the left front tire. It is a grey fuse block on the back wall of the compartment. If your fuse block is not in this location, there is a fuse, the fuse block will need to be found.

Thanks Gary. I do not have that compartment. I believe because I have a driver's side door. My automotive fuses are located under my dash and did not have anything labeled that would lead me to believe there was a fuse(s) for the power seats. That said, I'm still not sure I've found all the fuse panels in this thing.

Hi Roscott,
There is more than one automotive fuse block (2). There is also one fuse for the driver and one fuse for the passenger seat. The heavy duty relays are on the same fuse block that contains the seat fuses. The other automotive fuse block is a green solid state circuit board that fuses are plugged into.

Got it! Thanks for the guidance Gary. I found the fuse block under the hood that has the heavy duty relays. There are a couple of black boxes there I assumed were 'hands off', but decided to see if I could remove the cover on one. Sure enough, there were the fuses. I found the 'capt seat' fuse, pulled it and it was blown. Still don't know how they knew DW is the captain though....

Thanks 007. I'm hoping the blown fuse is the only culprit. The power and ground wire are disconnected from the seat. I had to cut them to remove the seat...at least that was the easiest way I saw to do it. Didn't think about the 'live' power when I made the cut and probably blew the fuse then. Anyway, I'm heading out of town for the week on business so won't get the fuse replaced until next weekend.

When I reinstalled the seats, I added male/female spade connectors in case I have to remove them again...I won't have to cut the wires. Why didn't they do this from the factory?

My late 90'shad plugs also the 03.
Good luck with fuse Gary may have pointed you to its location.
Here is a link in QT's # 3 that has locations also.
