    I recently started having problems with my power seat. The fuse blew out one day and replaced. A few days later, it blew again. Any one have a clue? Not that I need to move my seat around alot.

    One of your wires under the seat is prob catching in the rail somewhere and shorting out when you move it or hit a bump. Your cig lighter is also on the same fuse.

    I think that might be so, my cig lighter also stopped working. Will check that, thanks.

    I had a similar problem and it turned out that the motors were drawing too much current. I was told this isn't an uncommon problem for our cars. I found a manual seat track on ebay and replaced the electric one. The electric tracks are heavy. Now I can adjust all day long and no blown fuses. :)

    I just went and got new connectors from kragen that have rubber arounf them so that they dont spark if they touch something metal behind my shifter bezel and that solved the problem.
