XF Electric Seat Fault

Hi Folks,

I have a 2009 XFS and recently the drivers side electric seat has stopped working. There is no indication on the memory selector unit in the door. I thought it would most likely be a blown fuse but I have checked them today and they are all good. Anyone got any ideas of where to start looking next? Loathe to put it to the garage and they would probably see it as an open cheque book!!

Cheers,

Rob.

Hi Rob, Unfortunately I have exactly the same problem with the passenger seat in my XKR and like yourself being an electrical engineer went straight to the fuses. 

I suspect a wire snag or plug / socket issue. When weather improves I intend to remove seat to take a look. 

If you find anything in the meantime please let me know.

Thanks Kenny, I'm an automation and controls engineer so I went for the most likely fault. This is a bit strange because the lumbar support control works Ok but non of the seat positioning buttons work. I'll let you know if I find anything.

Does anyone have (or know where I can get) the circuit diagrams for the XF?

Cheers,

Rob.

Hi Rob, Hi Kenny,

                    Same trouble with the drivers seat on mine, as I had it in last week for the Wiper Assembly to be replaced, I told him about it. He gave me one of those irritating "Mechanic's Look's", and said to leave it to him. I did, went over for a full English opposite and a wander round PC World. When I got back it was all done and I asked what it was(Fuse or wiring) He said neither, he had removed the seat and physically jiggled it..!!! (As a vicar, I don't think I should get involved with that sort of thing!) Anyway, apparently, the motors often stick and that is all it takes! It works fine now, there was no charge for the 'Jiggling' but £140 for the wiper assembly. I am hoping for a good collection this week!

Hope this is helpful,

Phill (Reverend)

Hi Phillip,

I had to WD40 the driver's seat a couple of times during the winter,  and a bit of jiggling [permissable] worked.

As an aside, please give my support to the workers at Port Talbot, a works I know well, and where i felt that I was always welcome every time I went there.

Regards,

Peter.

Hi Peter,

             Thanks for that, and yes I will as I am in a position to do this on Sunday. It is heartbreaking to see people here in Taibach with worry on their faces as they go into work smashing all production records again this week, and it is not making any difference! As without the generous help given to the German and Dutch Steel Workers, but refused to ours under European rules, they don't stand a chance! Very sad, very sad indeed!

Kind regards,

Phill.

Thank You, Phillip.

I was a Divisional Officer for the ISTC, now Community, and a great friend of my Colleague John Foley MBE, and his half brother Tommy Fellows who both live in Port Talbot.  I know Port Talbot very well, and the workers there are the salt of the earth, hard working and  generous.

Regards, 

Peter Lightfoot

P.S.  I have been retired since 1999, but some of them night remember me.

Really struggling to find a solution to this fault. Took it to an independent dealer in Birmingham this morning who put the diagnostic computer on it. It comes up with "LIN bus A message missing". The guy doesn't know what this means but is trying to find out. Anyone have any ideas???

Cheers,

Rob.
