Customer Question

I recently purchased a 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT with power lumbar support. While driving, the passenger seat lumbar support inflates, then deflates without anyone touching the control button. I would like to just disable the lumbar support only, keeping the front-back action of the seat back and the forward back control of the seat itself . How, if possible can I accomplish this?
