Seats and such
To cold butts
Remember my two day wonder seat heater repair? Well what with the outside
temps at 60 degrees it seemed like a good time to fix the seat again. It's warm,
therefore I need heat.
I pulled the seat, and peeled back the leather. My fix was still good.
But I had another burn out way at the back of the drivers side bottom side
bolster. Way back. I left plenty of slack for this fix by cutting away more of
the cloth covering than I needed to. I now have a couple of inches or so of
slack. This fix won't break.
So I'm feeling good about this and I decide to find the problem with the power
recliner that died after my first seat job. I had pulled the seat back off
completely when I fixed the heater the first time. You don't need to. When I
reinstalled the wire plug in to the power seat control module I put it into the
vacant slot. Seat was dead. So now I pulled the wire plug back out to see if
maybe it was in backwards or something. I used a mirror and a light to check
and DUH..... The slot I had used was a dummy, now my namesake. A dummy, no
wires or nuthin. BZZZZZZZZZZZZZT. Wrong slot. Top slot, not the bottom.
So all is fixed.
Got a gas smell though. Not in the car but mostly from the outside. Not from
the trunk or engine compartment. Mostly on the passenger side. I did check the
code readout and the gas canister valve is working. Hose off somewhere?
