Customer Question
2008 Aston Martin Vantage...

2008 Aston Martin Vantage. Drivers seat is all the way forward. The seat has lost all power and we can not get it to move. Seat buttons are "dead". We replace any blown fuses, but still seat will not retract.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Power seat has loss all power consistantly

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Vantage yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am a restoration company. We were detailing the car and moved the seat all the way forward and at the furthest point. When we went to retract, seat would not move

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Passenger seat and all windows now work after replacing some fuses. Just the drivers seat is inoperatable
