Default Driver'* Power Seat Lumbar Control

My '95 SSE has the driver'* seat lumbar control defective. The switch does compress the lumbar, but after about 5 seconds it opens back again. Is there an air compressor that moves it? It seems that there might be a leak somewhere. Can I fix this? Anyone have any tips on what parts I should look at? Thanks.

Sounds like a leak to me. Can you hear a hiss when it deflates? Locate it.

hmm... your screenname sounds familiar...

Yes, sounds like a leak. Do all four of the air-compressor related functions have that problem?

No just the driver'* seat lumbar. The other driver controls work fine and so does the passenger side controls. Where'* the compressor that controls the driver'* lumbar?

There are actually three lumbar bags in the seat and a fourth one for the side bolsters. Do all three lumbar and the side bolster leak?
