Neither of the front seats in any position? thanks.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes Sir won't move any which way, It was infrequent now cannot move either seat anywhere. Horn is now out too..
Expert:  Dan replied 4 years ago.
Access one of the switches in the front, the black wires should have good ground and the red wires should have good power.......If no ground run a new ground, if no power check the 30 amp circuit breaker under the hood if its good you have a wiring problem on the red wire..I woudl just go ahead and replace the circuit breaker.

Hello. Thank you. Where is circuit breaker. I know where fuse box is on drivers side shock tower. Could this have something to do with hgorn too. I will check out tommorrow and get back to you
Thanks again
Expert:  Dan replied 4 years ago.
The horns work off the same circuit breaker so I think that is your problem. You should be able to find the circuit breaker if not let me know and I'll try to find a picture. Thanks.

Its in the fuse box under the hoox and it should be labeled 30 amp seat breaker. Let me know if you have troubles finding it.

Thank You

Thats good to hear its all working like it should be. I'm not that familiar with the 88 mercedes but have a good understanding of electrical and mechanical systems in general so I would maybe be able to help. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The breaker replacement heated up with ignition on weird, then it would stop functioning, Fired up compressor and blew all the garbage from out from under seats,,, seems to have stopped passenger seat smelt of maybe elctrical burning.. but is functioning now. The mercedes needs some form of suspension fix it is like it needs shocks, but I think i see strut towers, when you step on brakes it goes clunk a clunk up front weird.. if you can give me an idea what's up i will just pay you here, as i did for Cadillac..

Thanks

Expert:  Dan replied 4 years ago.
That question would probably be better for someone who is more familiar with the vehicles, I dont think the struts are the cause of the noise.
