Default Weird power seat problem...

I'm having a weird power seat problem.
Today after work I tried to adjust the Lumbar control on my seat (for the long drive home) and to my surprise the 3 lumbar buttons are not working and the "side adjustment" (middle row, left colum button).
So I tried adjusting the passenger seat and same thing no Lumbar and no side adjustment.
The rest of the buttons still work and up until today all the buttons worked.
The funny thing is that it sounds like the power is getting to the seat when I press those buttons but no movement.

Anyone have any ideas ?

If its the switch, I just got a spare from the wreckers on the weekend, but I don't know if it works or not.

Thanks in Advance,
Dutch

Dutch check all the connectors under your seats and under the console. I had a similar issue and found a connector under the seat unplugged.

Had that same feeling, you could hear a relay or something trying but not doing anything.

Wouldn't you know it, I just had the same thing happen today on the SSEi. Only my situation is the billows on the pass seat works, the drivers doesn't. Same noise, no squeeze. Just happened so haven't had time to tear into it.
