There is a memory seat module that controlls all the functions of the memory seats on both front seats. It is located under the drivers front seat. This module uses the inputs from the seat switch to accuate different settings. The switch accually just acts as a sensor for the input to the module. When you pudriver 1 or driver 2 the resistance to that sense circut to the module changed and the module adjusts the seat accordingly. That same module also controlls the heated seats, you could have a problem within the module. Keep in mind, the memory seat module also uses inputs from the keyless entry remotes to differ 1 from 2. If the remotes are not programmed properly to the module and 1 or 2 position it may hinder the operation of the memory seat system.
As far as the rear windows go, if you hear the motors running when you hit the switch and the windows dont move, there is only one thing it can be. The window regulators have come apart and are not transfering the motion of the motor to the window. In that case the motor/regulator assembly should be replaced. These days all regulators come with motors already on them so its a pretty simple job.
Hey Josh, It definately sounds like the module may be bad on your car. I can't say for sure without having the car here to check out but that is the most likely cause.
The window regulators are not that bad to replace. Remove the door pannel and unbolt the window from the regualtor. Then you just unplug the motor, unbolt the regulator and wiggle it out as an assembly.
The noise your hearing in the front of the car is probably the electric cooling fan. That fan is going to run any time the ac pressure reaches a certain pressure. It will stay on untill the pressure drops to a low threshhold even after you shut the ac off. This is normal.
Hey Josh, Those pannels are pretty straight forward to get off. Just remove the trim screws and pull the pannel outward at the bottom. The retaining clips will release and the pannel will pivot out. Thel lift the pannel upward to seperate it from the door.
The module is going to cost you a few hundred bucks. The module itself wil be a couple of hundred then and hour or so labor to take out the seat and replace it.
Alot of vehicles have the logic programmed in that the fans come on as soom as the compressor engages. The computer would rather run the fans too often than not often enough. I wouldn't worry too much about that.
Hey, sorry about that. The bulbs on the coucol probably are burned out. When you take the out look at the bulb sockets to make sure they didn't melt.
You can try leather repair on the dash but it won't look right. The only way to fix that the right way is replace it, which is a huge and expensive job.
Hope I helped with everything, good luck.
