If the seats were in a open car for a while the motor might be sticky.. give it a tap or two..see if it frees up.

yes, i'm using the bonneville seat controls

i hook up the airlines just like a bonneville, i hear little clicks coming from the air compressor

i also tap on the motor and it still does not work.

the seat does act like it what to recline but does not, it clicks

If it'* clicking then it'* probably a stuck or malfunctioning motor.

Bench test the compressor out of the car. If it'* bad, and the relay module clicks to engage it, you won't have any air to the 6 lumbar sections or the side bolsters. Need to know if you have 12 volts at the compressor when using any air function, or whether the compressor works with an alternate source of power.
