2005 nissan Maxima SE, Possible short in drivers power seat

Customer Question

2005 nissan Maxima SE, Possible short in drivers power seat (cloth, not heated) causing BCM to overheat and shut off power to the following systems only: driver power seat, power locks, power windows, power sunroof.

I disconnected all plugs EXCEPT yellow airbag plugs, and car systems function normal. Im trying to narrow down which exact part of the drivers seat (which plug) is the problem.

I want to know which plug does what on the drivers seat, as well as any suggestions or comments.

Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for visiting Just Answer.

 

1) Sorry for the long delay.

2) First off I am checking to see if you have already resolved your concern.

3) If you do still need help, if there is anything more you think would help me answer your question, please reply with that info.

4) If you happened to leave off the year make and model and engine liter size or any stored trouble codes or anything you have done so far, please include that information in your next reply.



I am sorry you have had to wait so long for the first contact. Sometimes this happens when the question you ask is not detailed enough or its just hard to address online. Many have viewed your post, but have decided to pass. I will do my best to help you. I have access to many repair sites, so at the least I can provide something to address at least part of your concern if it is not something I can address from memory and experience.

I work on this site only in the evening hours 7 days a week. I am online normally from 3-midnight. Thanks for using our site, we will do all we can to earn your business, again sorry we did not get to you sooner.

Im i bit disappointed Chris... I get the impression that your response is a "canned" reply that has nothing to do with my specific question. I clearly listed the make and year, what my issue was, what steps i have done, and ask specifically for information on the wiring of the drivers seat.


 


 

Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 10 months ago.

The BCM supplies power to the drivers and passenger seat, since disconnecting the drivers seat resolves the issue we need to disconnect the drivers seat and open the harness so you can test the seat switch and lumbar switch. When not in use neither read wires to either switches should have any load. So ohm test both to ground to see which shows ground or resistance to ground. It is going to be one of the switches to blame, not the motors. Use the below diagrams.
