Electric Seat Adjustments

Recommended Posts

Hi there experts,

This is regarding a 2005 2.7L V6 disel S type Jaguar.

I got the car yesterday only!. Now the issue I have is that I can not raise or lower the height of the driver (also passanger ) seat.

Both seats, driver and passanger, seats moves forward and backward with moving switch forward and backward respectively.

If I lift the same swithc fron the nose sise, the seat changes it's angle by raise or lowering the front of the seat.

If I press the same button up or down, I was expecting the seat base to go up or down from the base to raise the height of the seat but that is not happening.

The question I have are,

(1) Am I not using the right button or doing anything wrong?

(2) Is height ajustment feature is not there at all ( I would not expect this as height ajustment is must and I  have not seen any car yet which did not have mechanism to raise or lower height of the driver seat)

(3) Is that mechanism has gone faulty?

(4) I will have to check the fuse, but need to know which one to check. no 5 or 16 in passanger compartment fusebox? Or is it no 11 in trunk fuse box?

(5) Is there a single fuse for both driver and front passagent seat adjustments?

(6) Am I correct in assuming  that there should be a single fuse for any adjutsments(height, front back, or angele)

(7) I read in manual that each electric there is a separater rear height drive motor, would that motor have a separate fuse?

I need to raise the height of the seat please.

Many thanks in advance and apologies for a long post.

by moving the back of the switch up and down it should go up and down

though there are 16 way adjustable seats and 10 way adjustable seats

do you have a pic of the seat switch

its also a good idea to test all the electrics before you buy the car, may be a bit late now
