    Looks like all it controls is my drivers seat motor and the power outlets.. I have no idea why it's doing this. how do I track down the problem? Nothing is inside the power outlet so it's not a coin or something shorting it..
    I've gone through a good 7 or so 20 amp fuses so far..

    Get a multimeter and start testing!

    According to my manual its cigar lighter, power point and lumbar seats.

    that is what my manual shows as well. A meter could work but it would probably be easier to either reach under the seat and disconnect the pwr hrns going to it or to check the behind the dash in the radio/cig lighter area for a short.

    So basically i should check my wiring job on my center console? I had to splice a bit because I have a 94 but my center console and cigarette lighter are out of a 2002 so there was a little adjusting to be had. I'll bet that's it...

    yup bet there is some bare copper back there otherwise it could be the seat that is shorting out as well.
