Customer Question
believe it is something in...
my 2015 f150 is having some electrical problems and i believe it is something in or around my driver side seat. Something is causing the settings in my dash to reset so my power running boards are no longer automatic, my passenger side window works only part of the time, i lose power to my AC controls, heated seat button, volume knob, and a few other buttons. The reason i think it is something in my front seat is because i have noticed when I am sitting all the way back everything works fine, but if i lean forward or cause a change in pressure on my seat that is when everything starts acting up. Help would greatly be appreciated!

Hello and welcome to JA....ok... Let's reach under the seat and unplug the connectors that go to the seat and then see if they're still has an effect on the other components in the vehicle that are working or not working when you're leaning forward or back on the seat so we can eliminate the seat and it's wiring as a possibility

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
