Default Help, Driver'* side power seat quit working

Anyone have any experience troubleshooting a non-working power seat? The passenger'* side works fine, but the driver'* side quit. None of the functions work at all and it'* not even trying. Thanks in advance.

This might be a stupid question, but have you checked the fuses?

The only thing I could find along those lines was a single 30 amp fuse on the passenger side of the dash and it fused both seats.

I'm sorry, I can't believe I didn't put that in there. Its a 2001 Intrigue. I started pulling the manifold on the '02 bonneville, I fixed the bent tab thing on the Intrigue'* wipers, changed oil and cleaned the AFE filter on the '97 F250 today, so it'* been a fun day in the garage watching the NASCAR race today.

Check for voltage at the seat. Could be a bad relay.

Will do. Not exactly my favorite place to work, underneath the seat that is.

Better then shoving your head up under the dash.

I have the same problem, though the car is just not moving back and forward. I think that it'* a bad switch, so this weekend I'm taking a trip to the pick a part to get a replacement. I'll let you know how it goes.
