it is hot with power and hot to touch...husband took the fuse out in case there is a problem...
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Okay thank you for that. I have enclosed the wiring diagram for the seats and if the fuse is hot that usually means the connection to it is not tight which will cause it to heat. Have your husband have a look at the wiring diagram and start with checking to see if you have power from the fuse to the switches on the orange wires at both switches. If you do not then have him check the connection coming out of the fuse box to make sure its not loose. See the diagram in the link below. Post back if you have more questions and or need more help.
