Default AL7'* stopped working

Today I was cleaning my car, so I moved my seats all the way up. When I was done cleaning in the back, I went to put them back to do the front. Went to click the switches.... nothing. All buttons... nothing, both on L and R. Is there a fuse or Breaker somewhere I can check?

Kinda sucks when I can't get in either of my front seats.

check in your main fuse panel under the d/* dash, and also the small hidden fuse panel behind the p/* kick panel.

Sounds more like they're stuck though? I've had that happen before.

Checked the Breaker... it was red hot. I checked the wires under the passenger seat... fine. Now I have to check under the Drivers' seat. I think its under there since it'* the one moved up as far as it can go.

Whoops! Just noticed this was in the wrong section... Mods move to Electrical.

Went to go buy a new one... No one has them. Advance, Federated, Napa, and Autozone does not have them. they all told me that the small prong ones for the Mini fuse boxes are Dealer parts only.

Problem solved. The main power wire (orange) to the relay box for the seats was smashed in the seat rail and was grounding out! Good thing for fuses and Breakers, or that would have been a nasty fire.

ALSO - Can I temporarily put a 25A fuse in place of the 25A Circuit Breaker? I don't see why not.

Yeah I am gonna do that. I am afraid that it will screw up... but shouldn't. I have to go to the damn dealer for the stupid breaker. All the parts stores I listed only have the fat pronged breakers.

All closed on Sunday... unfortunantely. :( And I need to move the Bonne cause only one car can fit in the driveway since I have my car all the way at the end like a ***, and I can't squeeze my fat butt in there to move it.
