Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.If you are sure the fuse checks okay the the next step would be to check for power and ground at the seat switch and if that checks okay the check for power out of the switch to the seat motors. I have enclosed the wiring diagrams for both seats in the link below for reference , copy and paste the links below to your browser to open and view them. Post back if you have more questions and or need more help.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Power%20seat%20Feb%2021.pdfhttps://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Power%20seat%20%232%20Feb%2021.pdf
Herb,Do you have power into the switches and none out, is that what your saying?
Okay then are you getting the power at the seat motors?
If you have power into the switch on the power wire (red/green) and none out on the either wire will working the switch then that usually means you have a failing switch or an open circuit from the switch to the motors in each seat.
You can jump it as long as you provide power and ground.
The red/green wire is the power supply wire from the fuse to the switches. If you have lost power on it and your sure the fuse is okay then you a have an open in the circuit.
Are you sure you did not blow the fuse. Using a jumper is safe as long as you jump the correct circuit. You may need to seek some hands help here .
There is only the fuse shown in the factory wiring diagram I sent you. I have sent you all the wiring diagram I have . I will open the post back up for you in hopes someone else has something different to add. If they can help you they will post back.
